Rewarding show from Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio

Perhaps it has become less than complimentary to talk about classical music as comfortable; classical music should be (or should be marketed as) bracing, exciting, the better to compete in an ever-noisier media environment. Nonetheless, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio’s Celebrity Series concert at Jordan Hall on Sunday was a decidedly comfortable affair.

The group’s sound is comfortable, certainly: a plush, Romantic tone, Joseph Kalichstein’s solid, clear piano touch mediating between Sharon Robinson’s rich, cushiony cello tone and Jaime Laredo’s more finely honed violin. But the comfort is mostly temperamental; after playing together for over 30 years, the group is comfortable with each other, interpretively congruous, effortlessly anticipative.
