A sample of Mendelssohn magic! "Song Without Words"
from the Argenta Trio's CD The Piano Trios of Felix Mendelssohn
The Argenta Trio is the world-class piano trio-in-residence at UNR. Depending on how you count, 2012 was the 25th anniversary of the Argenta Trio, acquiring its silvery moniker in 1987. Or we can go back to the trio’s inception as “The UNR Piano Trio” in 1962 and extol its 50-year heritage of exemplary music making. The trio, like all great ensembles, has seen personnel changes over the intervening years. The current line up of violinist Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio, cellist Dmitri Atapine and pianist James Winn came together in 2009 with the addition of Mr. Atapine. Ms. Sant’Ambrogio joined the trio in 2007 when John Lenz was the cellist. Jim Winn is the anchor member having joined Argenta in 1997.
