String trios are a relatively rare occurrence. While other chamber music combinations are plentiful, string trios are the immersive, compelling cherry on top that few get to experience live in performance.

For Stella Chen, Matthew Lipman, and Brannon Cho, it is all about the full spectrum of expression and shining the light on string trio repertoire with many much-loved works and hidden gems. It is about connecting the familiar with the unfamiliar and truly living and breathing the music.

It’s about the musical minds behind the dazzling performance of a lifetime.

Award-winning violinist Stella Chen, praised for her gleaming tone and staggering technique, has performed as a soloist with many world-renowned symphony orchestras and continuously tours around the globe. She is the inaugural recipient of the Robert Levin Award from Harvard University, among many other top accolades. When Stella Chen plays, there is no shortage of chills.

Avery Fisher Career Grant winner Matthew Lipman is acclaimed for his rich tone, elegant phrasing, splendid technique, and musical sensitivity. He is one of the most sought-after instrumentalists of his generation. His recordings include his debut album, "Ascent," and the Billboard Classical chart-topping recording of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.

Cellist Brannon Cho, the First Prize winner of the International Paulo Cello Competition, among other awards, has been applauded for his burnished tone and spellbinding technique. He is truly one of the most outstanding artists of his generation, having performed with many orchestras and world-renowned conductors worldwide.

It is also about indulging in a program both the performer and the audience adore.

Beethoven's String Trio No. 3 in G major boasts vigor, brilliance, and virtuosity in the faster movements, contrasted with great beauty and a melancholic atmosphere in the slower movements.

Gideon Klein’s String Trio is an innovative and profoundly moving work in an Expressionist style. It contains polytonality, polyrhythm, and Moravian folk tunes, and it is especially renowned for its emotional content.

Named one of Mozart’s most noble works, the Divertimento in E-flat major offers something special: every note contributes to spiritual and sensuous fulfillment in sound.

The jewel-like 450-seat Bennett Gordon Hall is an indoor recital hall at the southernmost section of the Ravinia Festival grounds. It is famous for its seasonal performances of classical music and jazz.
