Strings Theory Trio is excited to announce our performance at the historic Loring-Greenough House on Sunday, March 15. We have played L-G a number of times and it is one of our favorite venues. We play for a wonderful, attentive audience and then we all have high tea presented in this beautiful setting. It is a fabulous way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Combining idiomatic flexibility, a deep wellspring of creativity, and world-class virtuosity, violinist Mimi Rabson is one of the Boston area’s most valuable musical resources. Her ensemble, Strings Theory Trio, is a uniquely compelling synthesis of classical chamber music and directed improvisation, bringing together some of Rabson's most important influences and inspirations. With Rabson and Helen Sherrah-Davies on five string violins and Junko Fujiwara on cello, STT supercharges the intimate atmosphere of chamber music with a triple dose of edgy, daring improvisation. The listener is treated to experiencing Western classical tradition anew; the surging counterpoint and crystalline instrumental sonorities gain new resilience and allure from their origin in the inspiration of the moment. Simultaneously delicate and dangerous, STT's music is richly nuanced and deeply satisfying.
