Hailed as a “dream team of performers” (Strings Magazine), violinist Joshua Bell, cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Jeremy Denk will come together to offer an unparalleled evening of Fauré chamber music. This summer marks the trio’s first U.S. appearances since their debut tour in 2019, where they received widespread praise for their “fresh and cohesive sensitivity and superb technical polish” (Boston Classical Review). These three longtime musical collaborators and friends are masters at the top of their crafts, not to be missed.
