A lively Q & A session following the chamber music concert "A Sunday Afternoon with the Rossetti Piano Trio" presented by FanFaire Foundation at the Neurosciences Institute Auditorium on May 16, 2010.

 
An event of “FIRSTS,” Sunday Afternoon with the ROSSETTI PIANO TRIO launched FanFaire Foundation’s  MUSIC APPRECIATION CONCERT SERIES and BRING KIDS TO THE CONCERT PROGRAM. It was also the Foundation’s first ever presentation at the acoustically superb NEUROSCIENCES INSTITUTE AUDITORIUM – indisputably one of the world’s best small concert halls, marking what we hope is the beginning of a productive partnership with the unique research institution that is a sanctuary for both SCIENCE and MUSIC.

The concert featured an inspiring program of PIANO TRIOS by MAX BRUCH, PHILIPP SCHARWENKA, RICHARD STRAUSS, and JEAN SIBELIUS as never presented before, performed by three musicians of international stature:

HENRY GRONNIER (violin), RINA DOKSHITSKY (piano), THOMAS DIENER (viola)

Thomas Diener regaled the audience with his very informative and entertaining commentaries. He demystified CHAMBER MUSIC for the audience – none of whom slept a wink – and gave them many reasons to begin a love affair with the art form.  [See RAVES!.]  An obviously enthused audience member yelled a very audible “When are you coming back?” during the lively Q&A that followed the performance. And as the just-then-converted, visibly happy chamber music lovers were streaming out of the concert hall, one gentleman was heard to say of Diener: “He is to chamber music what  John Motson (the famous British sports commentator) is to football!”
