Three friends and award-winning classical stars will come together for an evening of chamber music as UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Jean-Yves Thibaudet on piano; Lisa Batiashvili, violin; and Gautier Capuçon on cello, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10 at Santa Barbara’s Granada Theatre.

Capuçon’s powerful cello blends with the warm tone of violinist Batiashvili and the finesse of Thibaudet in a program of masterpieces that showcases their individual and collaborative gifts.

“When you have the possibility to play incredible music with great friends onstage, this is just pure luxury,” Capuçon said. “There is nothing better than that.”

The program includes:
Haydn: “Piano Trio in E Major, Hob. XV:28”
Ravel: “Piano Trio in A Minor”
Mendelssohn: “Piano Trio No. 2 in C Minor, op. 66”
