Poulenc Trio Celebrates Hanukkah with a World Premiere Concert


Tickets for the concert at the Walters are $20 for adults and $10 for students. For tickets and more information, contact An Die Musik at or call (888) 221-6170. 

Highlighting the program will be the world premiere of Yiddish Lexicon, by Jakov Jakoulov, a work that humorously explores certain Yiddish words that have made their way into our everyday lives. The program also features the Hebrew Overture by Prokofiev, a jazzy-jaunty Trio by Andre Previn and a series of works by Jewish composers including a rarely-heard wind trio by Erwin Schulhoff, the poignant string trio by Gideon Klein, and a set of beautiful string quartet movements by composers who perished at Theresienstadt. 

The Poulenc Trio is the world's foremost piano wind ensemble. The group has toured extensively around the world and has commissioned over 20 new works including several triple concertos. The Trio will be joined by special guest artists including National Symphony cellist Stephen Honigberg, clarinetist Rié Suzuki and violinist Sally McLain. The concert will also feature violinist Anton Lande and violist Nicholas Citro, both students at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. 

The concert at the Walters will be followed by a free meet-the-artists wine reception. 

The program on December 3 is part of the Trio's popular Music at the Museum series, which made its debut at the Walters five years ago. The concert is presented by An Die Musik Live.
