She talks to Cara Lieurance about the varied program of Schubert, Schoenfield, and Schumann. Ms. Eppinga also recalls a special magic in a Beethoven performance last season between herself and violinist Jennifer Walvoord and pianist Drew Le, the co-directors of the festival. She anticipates another memorable performance when they perform as a trio again this year.
