A dazzling, colorful trio of soloists, the members of Ensemble Schumann - Thomas Gallant, oboe, Steve Larson, viola, and Sally Pinkas, piano, present works by their namesake, Robert Schumann as well as by Brahms, Saint-Saëns, Loeffler, Poulenc, Shostakovich, and others. Gallant, Larson, and Pinkas have each performed at notable venues, including Lincoln Center, the Frick Collection, and Carnegie Hall in New York City, Jordan Hall in Boston, Wigmore Hall in London, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the festivals at Tanglewood, Ravinia, Lucerne, Spoleto, and Mostly Mozart. Performing together since 2005, Ensemble Schumann has been featured at the prestigious Da Camera Series in Los Angeles, at the Clark Art Museum in Massachusetts, and on Live From Fraser on WGBH Radio in Boston.
Recent seasons have included performances for the Stockton Friends of Music in California, Mount Vernon Museum of Art and Principia College in Illinois, Cornell College in Iowa, Auburn Chamber Music Society in Alabama, Washington University Chamber Series in St. Louis, Young Auditorium in Whitewater, Wisconsin, Strathmore Hall in Maryland, Big Arts on Sanibel Island, The Forum in St. Thomas, and appearances in Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Georgia.
