Hailed by The New Yorker as “destined for great things,” when the members of the Horszowski Trio (Hor- SHOV-ski) – Jesse Mills, Raman Ramakrishnan, and Rieko Aizawa – played together for the first time, they immediately felt the spark of a unique connection. Many years of close friendship had created a deep trust between the players, which in turn led to exhilarating expressive freedom.
Some of the trio’s 2014-15 season’s highlights include return engagements at the Bard Festival and the Friends of Chamber Music of Troy; the chamber music societies of Bethlehem, Mobile, Williamsburg, and the Feldman society in Norfolk; the Boise Chamber Music Series; Stockton Friends of Chamber Music; Music at Kohl Mansion; the Southern Oregon Chamber Music Concerts; and Cornell University and the University of Las Vegas.
Electric Earth Concerts, a festival in New Hampshire, commissioned a new work for the Trio, from Eric Moe, “Welcome To Phase Space.” The work was premiered in June 2014.
Their debut recording, an album of works by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, and D’Indy – all composers Mieczysław Horszowski knew – will be released by Bridge Records in the fall of 2014. They have also recorded “For Daniel” for a series of chamber music recordings to be released to celebrate the 75th birthday of Joan Tower.
Based in New York City, the members of the Horszowski Trio teach at Columbia University and the Longy School of Music of Bard College. At the Hudson Opera House. Visit HudsonOperaHouse.org for tickets.
