It’s Trout Week at WQXR, a celebration of all things chamber music, with performances in The Greene Space by some of the best and brightest chamber groups. We join in on the chamber fun on the Young Artists Showcase with works by Schubert, Dohnanyi, Beethoven and Franck.

Elizabeth Fayette, a soon-to-be graduate of the Curtis Institute, returns to the Young Artist Showcase together with New Zealand native Amanda Verner of the Aotearoa String Quartet, a recent first-prize winner in the Ohio Viola Society Competition. They are joined by Jeon-Hyoun Lee, another pending Curtis grad.

Their performance of two chamber pieces is followed by a preview of Sebastian Bäverstam and Pei-Shan Lee’s upcoming recital at Weill Hall on April 12. Cellist Sebastian Bäverstam is a winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition. He is joined by pianist Pei-Shan Lee, who teaches and performs as a collaborative pianist at the New England Conservatory in Boston.

Schubert - Allegro in B flat for String Trio
Dohnanyi - March and Romance (from Serenade in C)
Performed by Elizabeth Fayette, violin, Amanda Verner, viola and Jeon-Hyoun Lee, cello.

Beethoven - Sonata #4 in C
Franck - Sonata in A: 2nd movement
