Classical music trio plays today in recital hall

Justin Bovert

The luscious and organic music of the Jalina Trio will emanate from Capistrano Hall?s music recital hall this evening at 8 p.m.

The trio, Line Fredens on violin, Janne Fredens on cello and Natsuki Fukasawa on piano, formed in 1995 at the Academy of Music in Prague, and are called the “Danish-Japanese Piano Trio.” The group has studied with Ferenc Rados of the Liszt Academy in Budapest, the Emerson Quartet, Leon Fleischer and Wu Han.

The Jalina Trio?s performances have been described as evanescent in their grace. The trio?s music consists of renditions of various classical compositions including Felix Mendelssohn?s “D Minor, Op. 49” and Johannes Brahms? “B Major, Op. 8.” The two pieces will be performed at the concert, with a dedication to the trio entitled “Scenario Musical III” composed by emeritus faculty member Daniel Kingman to be played in the middle.

The trio has toured throughout Denmark, England, the Czech Republic, Italy, Hungary, Australia, Norway and the United States. After their stop in Sacramento they will continue to tour throughout California, then proceed to Denmark. A tour of Italy is in the works as well.

Tickets are $8 general admission and $5 for students and seniors. Tickets are available through the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323.
