Castle Green, Ballroom Pasadena Frank Roehrig (1893)
Vienna Piano Trio
This magnificently restored Victorian castle is an architectural fantasy of Moorish and Spanish motifs, surrounded by lush gardens and verandas. A sumptuous setting for an afternoon of Schubert, including one of the composer’s beloved piano trios (No. 2 in Eb, D. 929), performed with “liquidity, marvelous shaping, and sexy classicism” (The Strad) by “one of the world's leading ensembles of violin, cello, and piano" (Washington Post).
