Background: The members of Ensemble Schumann—Thomas Gallant, oboe, Steve Larson, viola, and Sally Pinkas, piano—have been performing together since 2005. The trio derives its name from composer Robert Schumann, presenting his work as well as that of many others, including Brahms, Saint-Saëns, Loeffler, Poulenc, and Shostakovich. Pinkas, Larson, and Gallant have each performed at venues such as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York City, Jordan Hall in Boston, Wigmore Hall in London, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the festivals at Tanglewood, Ravinia, Lucerne, Spoleto, and Mostly Mozart. Together they have been featured at the Da Camera Series in L.A., at the Clark Art Museum in Massachusetts, and on Live From Fraser from WGBH-Radio Boston.
