the pressler connection
The Beaux Arts Trio's days may be drawing to a close, but fortunately much-loved pianist Menahem Pressler has no plans to retire. One of the greatest chamber musicians of our time, a concert at Lincoln Center featuring him was billed as "The Pressler Connection." We'll hear a performance of Schubert's "Trout" Quintet from that concert.
