Marking the inauguration of David Shemer’s grand fortepiano, Ensemble PHOENIX on period instruments presents late fortepiano trios by three composers who had a personal connection: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Josef Haydn and Stephen Storace.  It is a pleasant surprise to hear the nearly unknown Storace trios, side by side with two of the most beloved trios by Mozart (KV 542) and Haydn  (the f# minor trio) - here in a Beethovenesque phase. With David Shemer (grand fortepiano), Rachel Ringelstein ( violin - Holland) and Myrna Herzog (cello).
