The Rossmoor Chamber Music Society’s third concert of the 2018–2019 season will feature the Navarro Piano Trio on Monday, January 21, 2019, at 7:30 p.m., in the Tahoe Room of the Event Center.

Co-founded in 1992 by pianist Marilyn Thompson and cellist Jill Rachuy Brindel, Navarro Trio is currently in its 26th season as chamber music artists-in-residence at Sonoma State. Currently comprised of violinist Victor Romasevich, cellist Jill Rachuy Brindel and pianist Marilyn Thompson, the trio will be joined for this performance by violist Wayne Roden.

Navarro Trio has performed virtually the entire “standard” piano trio repertoire.  They are also advocates of out-of-print and rarely performed works by composers including Rebecca Clarke, Paul Juon, Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel, Clara Schumann and Sergei Taneyev. In the contemporary vein, they have performed trios by Chick Corea, Richard Danielpour, Brian S. Wilson, Kirke Mechem and Paul Schoenfeld. 

Their frequent collaborations with Bay Area musicians and instrumentalists from the San Francisco Symphony, Opera, and Ballet orchestras have brought a remarkable range of mixed ensemble repertoire that includes the String Quartets of Bernard Brindel and Iosif Andriasov; Piano Quintets of Schumann and Shostakovich; the Vaughan Williams Quintet in D; Piano Quartets of Catoire, Fauré, Mozart, Saint Saëns and Schumann, and the Horn Trios of Brahms and Brian S. Wilson.


They will perform two quartets and one trio:

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770 – 1827),  Piano Quartet in C Major, WoO 36  Nr. 3 (“without Opus number”)

IOSIF ANDRIASOV (1933-2000), Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano, Op.7

SERGEI TANEYEV (1856 –1915), Piano Quartet in E Major, Op. 20


Navarro Trio (Victor Romasevich, violin; Jill Rachuy Brindel, cello; and Marilyn Thompson, piano.

Guest artist Wayne Roden, viola.

Single tickets for this January 21 performance will be on sale at the door only—beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the night of the performance—for $18 (cash and checks only). All Rossmoor residents and their guests are welcome.
