Beaux Arts Trio

June 12, 2008

The beaux arts trio plays schubert

Violinist Daniel Hope delivers another audio diary entry from the Beaux Arts Trio's final year together. They'll answer the question of how they got their name, and read a fan letter from the Faux Arts Trio. Then they'll play some Schubert in San Francisco, at the last concert of their last U.S. tour.
