A Trio for Violin, Alto Saxophone and Piano

But the real surprise of the evening was the pianist Elżbieta Sternlicht. The Polish pianist convinced the audience with a performance characterised by definition and richness of power that would not have been expected from her rather small and frail appearance. In Elżbieta Sternlicht’s interpretation of Debussy’s »L’Isle Joyeux« and Schoenberg’s »Sechs kleine Klavierstücke op.19« a distinguished creative power based on a completely sovereign pianistic technique could be heard.
