The Beaux Arts Trio Celebrates Fifty Years of Music

Audio will be available later today.

Pianist Menahem Pressler founded the Beaux Arts Trio fifty years ago with a Beethoven concert. Pressler and the trio's current violinist and cellist — Brazilian cellist Antonio Meneses, and British violinist Daniel Hope — recently played the Beethoven piano trio that launched the Beaux Arts Trio as an ensemble, the "Ghost" Trio. We hear it in concert in Bloomington, Ind.
