Bye Bye, Beaux Arts

Posted at 2:42 PM on August 24, 2008 by Gillian Martin (1 Comments)

It was the end of an era Thursday night, when the Beaux Arts Trio played their final concert at Tanglewood. With some different personnel, they'd played their first concert there 53 years earlier--only pianist Menahim Pressler has stayed the whole time.

Performance Today's Fred Child had the honor of hosting that final concert (lucky!), and the coverage of it on the Performance Today website is so fabulous that I didn't want you to overlook it.

Okay, it was very nearly the end of an era...that Tanglewood appearance, I have learned, was the Beaux Arts Trio's final American performance; they have a string of concerts in Europe in September before they are completely finished. Sorry for the misinformation.
