Palladium Chamber Players open 2016 with Debussy, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky

ST. PETERSBURG — The Palladium Chamber Players kick off their 2016 season Wednesday. Audience size has grown steadily since violinist Jeffrey Multer formed the quartet in 2013.

"I really feel like it's headed on an upward trajectory, that it's got some legs, that it's headed in the right direction," said Multer, who is also the concertmaster for the Florida Orchestra.

Part of the reason might be the chemistry between Multer and the other musicians. Besides Multer, the group includes violist Danielle Farina, cellist Edward Arron and pianist Jeewon Park, a relationship that goes back at least a decade.

Susan Betzer, a longtime friend of the group, called their communication a kind of "mental telepathy" between musicians who essentially conduct each other.

"It's the eyebrows, it's the smiles," said Betzer. "It's the glances. That's what makes it fun."

Wednesday's program includes Debussy's Violin Sonata, Beethoven's Sonata No. 5 and Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio. The group will play twice more this year, on Feb. 17 and March 23.
