Live from Hochstein: A Trio of Trios

Eastman piano professor Tony Caramia is joined by flutist Annette Farrington and cellist Elise Cole for a concert featuring three trios for flute, cello, and piano from the first half of the 20th century. Composers include Marion Bauer, Amy Beach, and Bohuslav Martinů.

You're invited to hear this music on Live from Hochstein on Wednesday May 4th at 12:10pm, in person* at the Hochstein Performance Hall (50 N. Plymouth Avenue, downtown Rochester) or by listening to the live broadcast on WXXI Classical.

One of the most successful American composers of her era, Amy Beach wrote her Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano during her first visit to the MacDowell Colony in NH. Composer, teacher, and music critic Marion Bauer’s Trio Sonata is alternately impressionistic, heartfelt, and gleeful. Martinů’s Trio was written in a holiday spirit while on a retreat in the Connecticut countryside, although the folk-music rhythms reveal the composer’s underlying homesickness.

Live from Hochstein with host Mona Seghatoleslami is a series of lunchtime concerts by some of the finest artists in our area broadcast live from Hochstein Performance Hall. Each of these free “brown bag” concerts runs from 12:10-12:50 p.m., giving downtown business people, teachers, families, students, and friends an opportunity to enjoy classical music during their lunch hour. You can also hear an encore broadcast of Live from Hochstein later the same day at 10 p.m. on Classical 91.5.

* Proof of vaccination is required for audience members (children age 11 and under must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult). All patrons will be required to wear masks. Please refrain from bringing food/drink into the hall so that we can all remain masked. See the full safety protocols online here.

Mona Seghatoleslami is the host and producer on WXXI Classical 91.5 FM weekdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. She also hosts the lunchtime concert series Live From Hochstein Wednesdays at 12:10 p.m., interviews musicians, produces special programs, and works on any project she can find that helps connect people and music in our community through WXXI.
