Claremont Trio

When: Fri., Sept. 7, 8 p.m. 2012

Classical music has its Indiana Jones in Angela Mace, a doctoral candidate in music at Duke. Using an original manuscript unearthed in a private collection, a diary and a bound collection of handwritten scores, Mace solved the mystery of Felix Mendelssohn's uncanny "Easter Sonata"—he didn't actually write it. His sister, Fanny Hensel, composed the piece that's been attributed to Felix for almost two centuries. The "Easter Sonata" headlines the enchanting Claremont Trio's program in the intimate Nelson Music Room, including another of Hensel's piano trios and a work by her famous brother. Claremont's also undergone changes since their delightful show last year, as twin sisters Emily and Julia Bruskin are joined by new pianist Andrea Lam. Make a day of it by hearing Mace tell her detective story at a free symposium in the East Duke Building Parlor at 4 p.m. along with Duke music professor R. Larry Todd and Notre Dame scholar Susan Youens. —Chris Vitiello
