2019-20 Season


Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30, the Boise Chamber Music Series welcomes the Neave Trio for the opening concert of the 2019-2020 season. Neave Trio will perform a program of women composers’ piano trios spanning the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, featuring works by Louise Farrenc, Amy Beach, Cecile Chaminade, and Jennifer Higdon. Two of the works are included on Neave Trio’s next album, Her Voice, which is released this fall on Chandos Records.

Neave Trio 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 Trio strives to champion new works by living composers and reach wider audiences through innovative concert presentations, regularly collaborating with artists of all mediums. These collaborations include performances with the Blythe Barton Dance Company; projection artist Ryan Brady; the interactive concert series “STEIN2.0,” with composer Amanuel Zarzowski; Klee Musings by acclaimed American composer Augusta Read Thomas, which was premiered by Neave; the premiere of Eric Nathan’s Missing Words V, sponsored by Coretet; and a music video by filmmaker Amanda Alvarez Díaz of Astor Piazzolla’s "Otoño Porteño.” Highlights of Neave’s 2019-20 season include concerts at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Arizona Friends of Chamber Music, Brown University, Feldman Chamber Music Society, Chamber Music Society of Williamsburg, and the Boise Chamber Music Series, among many others.

Please also join us for a free, educational event, “A Little Afternoon Music,” at 3:30-4:20 on Sept. 20, in the Morrison Center Recital Hall. The Neave Trio will perform excerpts from Her Voice, and engage the audience in casual, open dialog about the music and their recording project. In the words of Anna Williams, Neave Trio violinist, “There is so much great repertoire that is under-performed, especially from women composers, and we feel it is essential to program and record these masterworks alongside the more well-known catalogue of piano trio repertoire. These women really broke down barriers and paved the way for future generations and we are excited to honor their unique contributions and voices.”

Public parking in the Brady Garage.
The events of the Boise Chamber Music Series are sponsored by the Boise Chamber Music Society and the Boise State Dept. of Music.
