The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio

After four decades of success the world over, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio continues to dazzle audiences and critics alike with its performances. Since making their debut at the White House for President Carter’s Inauguration in January 1977, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo, and cellist Sharon Robinson have set the standard for performance of the piano trio literature, consistently bringing technical mastery, expressive depth, and magnetism to the concert stage. The Trio balances the careers of three internationally-acclaimed soloists while making annual appearances at many of the world’s major concert halls, commissioning new works, and maintaining an active recording agenda. Musical America named the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio the 2002 Ensemble of the Year, and the Trio was twice awarded the Samuel Sanders Collaborative Artists Award by the Foundation for Recorded Music.

Laredo and Robinson serve on the instrumental and chamber music faculty at The Cleveland Institute of Music, while Kalichstein teaches at the Juilliard School of Music. They are the Chamber Ensemble in Residence at the Kennedy Center.
