In 2012, Fanfare Magazine called the Chicago-based Lincoln Trio "one of the hottest young trios in the business." They're still young and they're still blazing hot, having performed both nationally and internationally to audiences that have included President Barack Obama. In this concert with the Chicago Philharmonic, the violinist, cellist and pianist display their exquisite artistry with Ludwig van Beethoven's forward-thinking and thrilling Triple Concerto. Then prepare to be fascinated as physicist Ken Kemner discusses his x-ray fluorescence analysis of Beethoven's hair and a bone fragment, shedding new light on possible contributors to the composer's life-changing illnesses. Tchaikovsky's fatalistic and neurotic nature filled his music. His Symphony No. 4 is considered a musical turning point for him, in which he expresses an array of emotions -- from bleak despair to gentle nostalgia, ebullient celebration, and triumph -- and it was completed in the aftermath of his short and disastrous marriage. And then there's the season's title work, John David Earnest's Chasing the Sun, which the composer envisioned while gazing out the window of a soaring airplane. This dynamic night of music takes place at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston.
