Described by STRAD Magazine as “Sensational” “Bewitching” and “Models of vibrancy and control” GRAMOPHONE Magazine, the celebrated GRAMMY nominated Chicago-based Lincoln Trio—made up of Desirée Ruhstrat, violin, David Cunliffe, cello, and Marta Aznavoorian, piano—takes its name from their home, the heartland of the United States, the land of Lincoln.
It was a star-studded performance, with a packed houseful of appreciative guests.
The Lincoln Trio is a joy to watch as their stage performance flows over the audience. Their joy and precision is evident in the highly synchronized gestures and expressions of the communications streaming to and from each player. Martha Guth was incredibly expressive as her narration and singing clearly brought the message of Assad’s composition about the agony of the ill-fated victims of 14th century witch murders.
Join many of these performers the rest of the week at various venues on the island, for ticketed and freewill events!
