The Merling Trio

Wednesday, January 21
8 p.m., Steve & Judy Turner Recital Hall

Now celebrating its 26th season with original members Bruce Uchimura, cello, Renata Artman Knific, violin, and Susan Wiersma Uchimura, piano, the Merling Trio is in residence at Western Michigan University. A truly international trio, it brings together musicians from Polish, Japanese and Dutch backgrounds. The Merling Trio has been hailed as a brilliantly distinguished group endowed with remarkable gifts of communication, magnificent precision, and an impeccable blend of sound. Their program will include a rare arrangement of the Brahms Hungarian Dances for piano trio by Freidrich Hermann, the Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas by Piazzolla, and Dvorak’s famed “Dumky” trio.
