Good things come in threes! Embrace this program featuring a trio of concerti from history's great masters. The concert opens with J.S. Bach's beloved Triple Concerto featuring Music Festival Faculty dynamo Ani Kavafian, joined by two of 2019's violin Fellows and Festival Music Director Jeffrey Kahane on harpsichord. Boston Symphony Principal Bassoonist Richard Svoboda and Jeffrey Kahane bring to life one of Antonio Vivaldi's 39 concertos for bassoon, followed by Metropolitan Opera Principal Oboist Nathan Hughes performing Mozart's only concerto for the oboe. The concert closes with the Montrose Trio, of whom the Washington Post raved are "poised to become one of the top piano trios in the world," in Mendelssohn's energetic Piano Trio No. 2.
