The award-winning Verve Trio returns with a varied program that spans a hundred years: The beloved C Major Piano Trio by Brahms soars with a romantic voice; Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano, and his Sonata for Violin and Piano, unlike his more familiar image-inspired works, enclose his unique sonorities in a more traditional form; and American composer, Paul Schoenfeld’s Café Music abounds with fiery, ragtime-infused riffs.

Sonata for Cello and Piano (1915), Claude Debussy (1862 – 1918)
Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major, Op. 87 (1882), Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897)
Sonata for Violin and Piano (1917), Claude Debussy (1862 – 1918)
Café Music (1986), Paul Schoenfeld (b. 1947)

Venue: Christ Lutheran Church 10707 Soquel Drive, Aptos
