2018-2019 SEASON: “Trio Masterworks”

The Hill House Chamber Players, musicians from the Minnesota Orchestra and University of Minnesota faculty, perform in the intimate space of the art gallery of the historic James J Hill House on Summit Ave in Saint Paul. The Hill House Chamber Players are Julie Ayer, violin; Tanya Remenikova, cello; Thomas Turner, viola; and Mary Jo Gothmann, piano. 

The theme “Trio Masterworks” is a celebration and exploration of the diverse repertoire for combinations of piano, violin, viola, cello and clarinet. Hill House Chamber Players, beginning with their 34th season, have built each program around one major piano trio, including Beethoven’s “Ghost” Trio, Op. 70; Brahms’s Clarinet Trio, Op. 114; and Shostakovich’s Trio #2, Op. 67; as well as works of Hummel, Boccherini, Mozart, Rebecca Clarke, JS Bach, and Schubert.
Repertoire for organ and strings will also be included, to celebrate the organ’s historic restoration.

Admission includes an optional 6:45 pre-concert conversation with musicians and music blogger Emily Hogstad, intermission refreshments, and a post-performance tour of the magnificent Gilded Age mansion, home to one of St. Paul’s most famous families.
