Chamber Works in Honor of Womens History Month
Since forming in 2010, the Neave Trio violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. In honor of Womens History Month, the Neave Trio will perform piano trios by four distinguished female composers: Rebecca Clarke, Amy Beach, Cécile Chaminade, and Jennifer Higdon.
One of her most prominent pieces, Rebecca Clarkes Piano Trio showcases her unique harmonic language, influenced by both the French and British styles of the early 20th century, as well as by folk music. Amy Beachs trio was composed late in her career, and incorporates lush romantic melodies over impressionistic tones and colors. Primarily a concert pianist, Cécile Chaminades trio unifies the strings with the piano in a supportive, balanced setting. Jennifer Higdons Piano Trio is comprised of two movements: Pale Yellow and Fiery Red. Of the work, Higdon writes, The colors that I have chosen in both of the movement titles and in the music itself, reflect very different moods and energy levels, which I find fascinating, as it begs the question, can colors actually convey a mood?
