By Staff
DEMOREST - The Storioni Trio, one of the leading Dutch chamber music ensembles, will present a concert of Classic, Romantic, and contemporary music at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Piedmont College Chapel in Demorest.<br /> <br /> Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors at the door. Piedmont students, faculty and staff are admitted free.<br /> <br /> The Storioni Trio was founded in 1995 by Bart van de Roer (piano), Wouter Vossen (violin) and Marc Vossen (cello). The trio derives its name from the Laorentius Storioni violin from Cremona, which dates from 1794 and is played by Wouter Vossen. Marc Vossen plays a Giovanni Grancino cello from Milan, dating from 1700. In order to develop its ensemble-playing, the trio has worked over the years with musicians including Isaac Stern, Mstislav Rostropovich, Menahem Pressler, and Ralph Kirshbaum, as well as members of the Emerson Quartet and the Vermeer Quartet.<br /> <br /> The Storioni Trio offers an expansive repertoire ranging from Haydn and Mozart to Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel and Shostakovich, to exciting works by contemporary composers. The trio has received various prizes and awards, and performs regularly on radio and television. The CDs recorded by the Storioni Trio Amsterdam have all received great critical acclaim.
