Peabody Trio - February 11

peabody_trioSince winning the prestigious Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1989 and making their New York debut in 1990 at Alice Tully Hall, the Peabody Trio has appeared on the Boise Chamber Music Series a record five times. They bring to their music making what The Washington Post calls “the romantic fervor of the 20th century greats.”

Our old friends (Violaine Melançon, violin; Natasha Brofsky, cello; and Seth Knopp, piano) have been heard in radio broadcasts on Saint Paul Sunday Morning, NPR’s Performance Today, Morning Pro Musica, CBC, Radio-Canada, WGBH in Boston, and WQXR in New York. The Peabody Trio collaborates frequently with such eminent artists as clarinetist Charles Neidich, violists Roger Tapping and Maria Lambros, soprano Phyllis Bryn-Julson, and actor Andre De Shields. Working with Walter van Dyck and Elizabeth Mansfield, The Peabody Trio is at the forefront of chamber music theater with a series of innovative, collaborative projects involving piano trio and actor.

The Peabody Trio currently serves as the resident faculty ensemble of the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, a position they have held since 1989.  They celebrated their 20th season in 2007-08 with the release of the Beethoven Trios Opus 1, Nos. 1 and 3 on Artek Records, the second in their series of the complete piano trios of Beethoven. Gramophone Magazine called this recording a "bold, flexible and vibrant" performance in which Beethoven's music received "consummate consideration." In 2004 the trio released their recording of the Beethoven Opus 70 Trios on Artek, praised by Strad Magazine as "some of the most accomplished Beethoven Trio playing …heard in many a year."
