Beaux Arts Trio

Weekend of May 10, 2008

Farewell from the beaux arts trio

Two weeks ago, the Beaux Arts Trio concluded its final North American tour with a concert in San Francisco. We'll take you there for pre- and post-concert conversations - thanks to our correspondent, violinist Daniel Hope -- as well as their performance of Dvorak's "Dumky" Piano Trio.
