“…foremost trio with the greatest longevity…bring(ing) to worldwide audiences their expressive and exhilarating interpretations.”  --Musical America
Notes:  Nearly 35 years after its debut at the White House, The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio continues to bring technical mastery, expressive depth, and magnetism to the concert stage. Carnegie Hall commemorated their 30th Anniversary in 2007 with a concert in Stern Auditorium. Richard Danielpour devoted a piano quartet in honor of the anniversary, which has become a part of their extensive repertoire. One of today’s most beloved ensembles, these three artists share their passion for music with audiences worldwide.
New works written for the Trio include:  Zwilich (1987)/ Silverman (1989)/ Kirchner (1993)/ Pärt (1993)/ Danielpour (2000)/ Tower (2003)/ Danielpour Quartet with Viola (2006)/ Zwilich Septet with the Miami Quartet (World Premiere 2009)/ Zwilich Bass Quintet (2011 – commissioning partners being assembled)/ Previn Trio (2012 - sponsored by the Music Accord Consortium)
Recordings:  Annual CD releases of The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio are available on KOCH International Classics. The catalog includes newly commissioned works for the Trio as well as re-releases of the group’s hallmark recordings from their past thirty years of making music together. Their most current release features the complete trios of Brahms.

Programs:   Please note the below are samples only. The Trio crafts each program carefully and specific offerings for each venue will be submitted by the Trio.
  • Complete Beethoven Cycle - Over the course of one weekend or several visits during a single season, treat your audience to a transversal of this magnificent body of work. All-Schubert and All-Brahms programs are also available.
