About the Artists
This impressive triumvirate-the Beaux Arts Trio -made its official public debut 28 years ago at the Berkshire Festival in Tanglcwood. After its premiere performance, the late Charles Munch wrote, "The marvelous musicality of these three artists has been unknown in trio playing for many years. They arc worthy successors of the last great trio -Thibaud, Casals, and Cortot." Since its debut, the Trio has been hailed the world over by critics and audiences alike, and has probably played more than 4,000 engagements throughout North America, Europe, Japan, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and the Middle East. It has an extensive array of best-selling records, and awards to match -most notably, just last month, the Prix Mondia du Disque, the Grand Prix du Disque, the Union dc la Pressc Musical Beige, and the Gramophone Record of the Year. To detail all the Trio's engagements is an impossibility, but among its prestigious annual engagements arc those at the Library of Congress, Harvard University's Sanders Theatre, the Metropolitan Museum Series in New York, and Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival.
Menahem Pressler was born in Magdeburg, Germany, and grew up in Israel. He began his professional career in the United States at the age of 17 when he won first prize in San Francisco's first international piano competition. His first American tour was highlighted by five solo appearances with The Philadelphia Orchestra. His engagements with orchestras of international renown include the Cleveland Orchestra, the National Symphony of Washington, D.C., and the New York, Israel, and London Philharmonics. In addition to extensive world-wide tours, both as a soloist and with the Trio, Mr. Pressler holds the position of Distinguished Professor of Music on the piano faculty of the Indiana University School of Music.
Isidore Cohen was born in New York City and studied at the Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian. He has been concertmastcr of The Little Orchestra Society in New York, and has held that same post with many other orchestras, including that of the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico. Recently he was concertmaster of the Mostly Mozart Festival in Lincoln Center, where he also appeared as soloist. Mr. Cohen has had an extensive chamber music background. It includes membership in the Juilliard String Quartet, and appearances with the Budapest Quartet and the prestigious Music from Marlboro chamber ensemble.
Formerly a fellowship student at Juilliard, Bernard Greenhouse went to Europe for an audition with Pablo Casals which turned into two years of study with the great Spanish master. Since then Greenhouse has won an enviable reputation as one of the major interpreters of his instrument, making appearances in most of the major cities of both Europe and America in recital, with orchestra, and with chamber music ensembles. He plays the famous "Paganini" Stradivarius cello dated 1707. Mr. Greenhouse is on the faculties of the Manhattan School of Music and the State University of New York in Stony Brook.
This evening's concert marks the Beaux Arts Trio's fourth Ann Arbor appearance.
