Boston-based group will perform Debussy, Shostakovich, Piazzolla

On Saturday, January 19 at 7:30pm the Neave Trio (Anna Williams, violin; Mikhail Veselov, cello; Eri Nakamura, piano) will be presented by High Desert Chamber Music at COCC’s
Wille Hall.

The program features Debussy’s Piano Trio in G Major; Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67, and Piazzolla’s Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (Four Seasons of Buenos Aires).

The Debussy and Piazzolla are featured on Neave Trio’s two 2018 CD releases. On November 16, 2018, Neave Trio released their latest album, honoring the music of Astor Piazzolla. Celebrating Piazzolla (Azica Records) includes Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas and new arrangements by Leonardo Suárez Paz for piano trio and mezzo-soprano Carla Jablonski.

Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. WQXR explains, “’Neave’ is 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.”

Returning to HDCM’s Concert Series is KWAX Classical Oregon host Peter van de Graaff for a special presentation preceding the concert at 6:45pm. A leading voice in classical music broadcasting, van de Graaff is a professional bass-baritone singer and has performed with opera companies around the world.
