  • January 30, 2015 2:00 PM


The Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth is thrilled to present the Montrose Trio in concert on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 2:00 pm in the auditorium of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The Pre-concert Conversation with Laurie Shulman and Gary Levinson begins at 1:15 in the auditorium.

Accomplished soloists and chamber musicians Jon Kimura Parker, piano, Martin Beaver, violin, and Clive Greensmith , cello have joined forces to “offer an exciting new piano trio that showcases their impeccable playing and captivating performance style.”  Formed in 2014, the Montrose Trio is named after Chateau Montrose, a famous Bordeaux wine the group enjoyed following their concerts. Martin Beaver and Clive Greensmith were both members of the renowned Tokyo String Quartet until it ended its 44 year career in 2013.  Mr. Parker was final guest pianist for the Tokyo Quartet and a backstage conversation with Beaver and Greensmith led to the formation of the Trio.  In 2015 The Washington Post raved about their “absolutley top-notch music-making…they are poised to become one of the top piano trios in the world.”
