Strata“…is a unique trio that San Francisco Classical Voice calls “a brilliant instrumental trio.” Hear and enjoy this deft ensemble in their upcoming performance at 2:30 pm in Faye Spanos Concert Hall, on Sunday April 7, 2024.
Strata is a coming together of three extraordinary musical talents: Audrey Andrist, piano; Nathan Williams, clarinet; and James Stern, violin and viola. Their combined credits encompass numerous international prizes and performances across four continents including such places as Carnegie Hall, the Marlboro Festival, the Kennedy Center, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, New York’s historic Maverick Concerts and San Francisco Composers Inc,
Strata brings “deft ensemble playing” and a “talent…that’s worth getting worked up about” [Washington Post] to a repertoire that combines the great trio and duo repertoire of the past with an ever-growing body of new works written especially for them over the more than 30 years they have been playing together.
“There is a sound one needs on clarinet to play Mozart, and Williams has it. Andrist articulates the lines with relaxed precision and provides solid rhythmic drive for the piece. Stern’s sound on viola is rich and full, and all three phrase together beautifully. Mozart, I think, would have loved it.” Solaria Hill
All holders of the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Juilliard School, the members of Strata are dedicated to every level of music education, from the mentoring of graduate students and young professionals, to the initial sparking of musical passion in very young children, to the guiding of audiences in what to listen for. Spoken commentary is an integral part of all their concerts. “[Strata speaks] to the audience, which not only helps the audience in its understanding of the pieces being performed, but also breaks down the walls of formality.” (News & Record, Greensboro, North Carolina)
Strata will provide a richly varied and entirely satisfying chamber music concert presented by Stockton’s Friends of Chamber Music. Come enjoy the concert and the Question and Answer session with the artists immediately following the concert.
