Stanley Silverman’s Piano Trio No. 2, “Reveille”
The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio Featuring Special Guest Sting
World Premiere by 92nd Street Y September 14 & 15
92Y’s chamber music series returns for a series with fascinating contrasts of repertoire. Led by artistic director Jaime Laredo, the first concert is a life-affirming performance marking the 10th anniversary of 9-11. The program also features the 92Y debut of Sting, who will be the special guest for the World Premiere of Stanley Silverman’s Piano Trio No. 2, “Reveille.” The work was commissioned by the composer’s son, Ben Silverman, and is dedicated to Ben’s life-long friend Herman Sandler, who died in the 9/11 attacks. Sandler was a founding partner in Sandler O’Neill and Partners and a principal supporter of the Rainforest Foundation Benefit Concerts at Carnegie Hall produced by Sting’s wife, Trudie Styler. This commission is Silverman’s second for The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio and marks the ensemble’s 35th anniversary. His first, Trio No. 1 (In Celebration), was a 92Y co-commission honoring the 15th Anniversary Season of the Chamber Music at 92Y series.
