The DeLuca-Karmazyn-Sussman Trio has been performing together for the past several seasons. They incorporate “live” program notes at their informal concerts in which they speak briefly about each piece and composer. Audiences respond favorably to their humor, interesting comments and fiery interpretations. Their repertoire includes trios by Dvorak, Shostokovitch, Haydn, Mozart and the scintillating Tangos of Astor Piazzolla.
