For 40 years, Walter and Elsa Verdehr have made up two-thirds of the Verdehr Trio. They’ve been joined by a number of pianists over the years. Silvia Roederer has been the third member for the last 15 years. During that time, their repertoire has included hundreds of pieces that were specially commissioned for violin, clarinet and piano.
On Tuesday, they’ll celebrate four decades together with a concert at MSU’s Wharton Center. Current State’s Scott Pohl spoke with the Verdehrs about their work and their plans for this week’s concert.
