Longleash marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth with an innovative program featuring two of the composers celebrated trios alongside contemporary responses: Beethoven's Piano Trios in C minor, Op. 1, No. 3, and D major, Op. 70, No. 1, coupled with John Zorn's Ghosts (inspired by Beethoven's Ghost Trio) and the premiere of a new work by Reiko Füting: "free -- whereof -- wherefore."
Longleash is an ensemble with a traditional instrumentation and a progressive identity. The expert young trio (Strad Magazine) takes its name from Operation Long Leash, a recently-declassified CIA operation promoting the work of American avant-garde artists in Europe during the Cold War. Fearlessly accomplished (Arts Desk UK), Longleash has quickly earned a reputation in the US and abroad for innovative programming, artistic excellence and new music advocacy.
