Winsor Music presents a rare trio performance by the celebrated Díaz siblings, Roberto, Andrés, and Gabriela.

All three Díazs have deep ties to Boston beginning with their training at New England Conservatory and ascending to the highest pinnacles of the Boston classical music scene. Grammy-winning violist Roberto Díaz was a proud member of the BSO before becoming principal violist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and now president of the Curtis Institute of Music. Cellist, Naumburg Prize winner and Avery Fisher career grant recipient Andrés Díaz was a professor at Boston University while touring the globe as a soloist and before settling in Texas. Their sister Gabriela Díaz, a fixture in the Boston musical scene, is concertmaster of BMOP, teaches at Wellesley College, and is co-artistic director of Winsor Music. Parents Manuel (viola) and Betty Anne Díaz (piano), also acclaimed musicians and recent Boston transplants, will make a special appearance. All three siblings received early musical training from their father Manuel, who among many accomplishments gave the Chilean premieres of Bartok, Walton, Hindemith, and Berlioz viola concertos and in his retirement is now playing with the Longwood Symphony in Boston.

The Díazs are presenting a program including two classic trios and Diaz family staples by Beethoven and Dohnányi and the playful Beethoven “Eyeglasses” duo for viola and cello.The entire Díaz family will perform a world premiere by Boston composer Marti Epstein,Yet There is Hope—Time and Tide Flow Wide. This piece is part of Winsor Music’s Songs for the Spirit collection, commissions based on themes of tolerance, peace and unity that invite audience participation from the broader Winsor family.

This celebrity program is part of Winsor Music's ever vital 22nd season, which culminates in June with an intimate Bach concert featuring Simone Dinnerstein and Peggy Pearson.
