AmiciMusic presents “Dandy D’Indy” with Steve Loew, clarinet;  Lawrence Stomberg, cello;  and Daniel Weiser, piano

AmiciMusic brings its trademark high energy, informal and educational approach to chamber music back to the intimate upstairs lounge at Isis with a program featuring the majestic, but unfairly neglected Piano Trio for clarinet, cello, and piano by the Romantic French composer, Vincent D’Indy!   Also included is the early Piano Trio for the same instrumental combination by Beethoven, a piece much closer in sound to Haydn and Mozart than the later Beethoven. Two other small pieces by Friedrich Voight and Emil Hartmann fill out the program.

Lawrence Stomberg :cello


Lawrence Stomberg, cello, has been hailed for his “style and elegance” and “lyrical expressiveness.” He enjoys a wide-ranging career as soloist, chamber musician and pedagogue. He currently serves as cellist of the acclaimed Serafin String Quartet and has performed throughout the U.S., Europe, South America, and China. Stomberg served on the faculties at Truman State University in Missouri and Oklahoma State University before joining the music faculty at the University of Delaware in 2004, where he is currently Associate Professor of Cello. He lives in Delaware with his wife, cellist Jennifer Crowell Stomberg and their three children. Mr. Stomberg plays a School of Testore cello, circa 1727, obtained with the generous assistance of Dr. William Stegeman.

Steve Loew : clarinet


Steve Loew, clarinet, is a former member of the US Marine Band and a member of the White House Orchestra who has performed for Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush Senior. A graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, Mr. Loew has also played with the New York Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra, and has collaborated with such artists as Marvin Hamlisch, Doc Severinsen, Roberta Flack, Meatloaf, Barbara Cook, and Johnny Mathis.
