Meany Theater

When the Tokyo String Quartet retired in 2013, two of its members — violinist Martin Beaver and cellist Clive Greensmith — found a new partner: pianist Jon Kimura Parker. The newly formed Montrose Trio quickly earned a reputation for “absolutely top-notch musicmaking” (The Washington Post), infusing their decades-long experience with the spark of a new collaboration. They make their Meany Center debut as a trio with a program that explores the whimsy of Haydn, the robust romanticism of Brahms and the colorful world of Shostakovich.

"There was a natural musicality and spontaneity in everything the ensemble touched." — The Washington Post
