The program included a new work for piano, violin, and cello by New York based composer Danielle Schwob as well as a selection “44 Duos for Two Violins” by Béla Bartók. The Schwob trio, written in 2009, was the newest piece on the program. Entitled “Music for Releasing Ghosts”, it without a doubt lives true to its name. The violin and cello, through shrieks and cries, take the lead role in what seems to be the release of one’s own inner demons, while the piano supports and reinforces this emotional exorcism.

Danielle Eva Schwob even wrote a piece of slow, consonant, tonal arpeggios, emoting like a nocturne...Shayna Dunkelman’s dark and beautiful washes of minor key vibraphone progressions during Schwob’s Sagittarius, with clarinetist Bill Kalinkos’s fleeting trills sounding almost like bits of electronic sound.

…blowing a creative space for herself so big that you could drive a truck through it. The young, UK-born composer does pretty much everything…nothing seems to be off the table for the dynamic Schwob.
