A CMS performance falling on Halloween calls for a special program.

Beethoven’s “Ghost” Trio, reportedly inspired by the witches’ scene from Macbeth, is followed by a new work based on a ghoulish tale by Edgar Allan Poe, as well as Bartók’s edge-of-your-seat sonata combining two thundering pianos and a battery of percussion.


  • Beethoven Trio in D major for Piano, Violin, and Cello, Op. 70, No. 1, “Ghost” (1808)
  • Gregg Kallor The Tell-Tale Heart for Voice, Cello, and Piano (2016)
  • Bartók Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, BB 115 (1937)
