Amelia Piano Trio -November 14

ameliasThe Amelia Piano Trio is among the most exciting young chamber ensembles to appear in the last decade. Making their mark by commissioning new works, such as Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Harbison's new piano trio, as well as by performing vivid interpretations of traditional chamber fare, the Amelia Piano Trio have quickly become one of the world's most sought-after ensembles. Called "remarkable" by Strings and "exemplary" by The Strad, in its short history the Amelia has been Grand Prize-winner at the Yellow Springs National Competition and recipient of the prestigious ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. In 2003 the Trio was asked by National Public Radio to be the Young Ensemble-in-Residence. This exciting week of live concerts and interviews put the Amelia firmly in the foreground of classical music in America, reaching an estimated 1.5 million listeners. Performing fifteen works that spanned the centuries, the Amelia forged a lasting relationship with NPR. In October 2006 the Trio was featured on Chicago's WFMT in live broadcast performances of the complete Beethoven Trios. The Amelia will perform three piano trios never before heard on our Series: an early work by Claude Debussy (Trio in G Major), Henry Cowell's Four Combinations for Three Instruments, and Sergei Rachmaninov's beloved Trio No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 9, "Elegiaque."
