On Friday, January 11, 2019 at 7:30pm, the Neave Trio performs music from their sophomore album, French Moments (Chandos Records, June 2018), on the Professional Musicians Series presented by the North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) at the intimate Bijou de la Vida Gallery (390 Commercial Street, Boston).
French Moments features the only known piano trios by Debussy, Fauré, and Roussel. According to BBC Music Magazine, “The performances balance passion with sensitivity and grace,” while The Strad praises the trio’s “eloquent phrasing and deft control of textures.”
Now in its fourth season, directed by Dr. Christina Wright-Ivanova, the Professional Musicians Series gathers music lovers from the North End community for special evenings featuring Boston’s finest, emerging classical musicians.
Tickets ($20-$45) are available through Eventbrite and include a wine tasting and cheese reception beginning at 6:30pm. For more information, visit www.nempacboston.org
Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio – violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura –has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. WQXR explains, "'Neave' is actually a Gaelic name meaning 'bright' and 'radiant', both of which certainly apply to this trio's music making." The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave in its "Best of 2014" and “Best of 2016” roundups, claiming, “their unanimity, communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility rate first tier.
Neave has performed at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, 92nd Street Y, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center/La Jolla Music Society, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series (United Kingdom), and the Samoylov and Rimsky Korsakow Museums' Chamber Music Series in St. Petersburg (Russia). The trio has also appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country and held residency positions at Brown University, ArtsAhimsa Chamber Music Festival, San Diego State University as the first ever Fisch/Axelrod Trio-in--Residence, and the Banff Centre (Canada), among many other institutions. In the fall of 2017, the Trio joined the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as an Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.
