Series brings global ensemble together

A group of friends and professional musicians from around the globe will present a chamber music recital at 4 p.m. Sunday at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 2200 N. Bell Ave.

The concert is part of the Trinity Series.

Two violinists, Filip Fenrych and Aleksandr Snytkin from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, will join their friends, violist Emily Deans, pianist Zahari Metchkov, and cellists Marie-Thais Levesque Oliver and Nan Zhang. The musicians — who hail from Poland, Lithuania, the United States, Bulgaria, Canada and China — will perform works by German and Norwegian composers.

The concert opens with the String Quartet No. 1 by Edvard Grieg.The main theme of the work comes from Grieg’s own song “Spillemaend.”

The second piece on the program is Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio in C minor. Composed and premiered in 1845, it was the last chamber work that the composer lived to see published, only two years before his death at the age of 38. As in other works, Mendelssohn uses a choral melody taken from the 1551 Genevan Psalter as part of the last movement.

Admission to Sunday’s performance is free, but donations will be accepted.
