The Peabody Trio To Perform at Hamilton
March 15, 1996
Formed in San Francisco in 1986, the trio made its New York debut in April, 1990 at Alice Tully Hall, and has since performed on many of North America's most prestigious stages, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, Calif., and in Denver, Indianapolis and Chicago. They have also performed in Canada and Japan, and have been heard on numerous radio broadcasts, including NPR's Performance Today, CBC and Morning Pro Musica.
Beginning a full-time residency at the Peabody Institute of Baltimore, Md., in 1987, the Peabody Trio is very active in commissioning and performing new music for the piano trio, as well as performing the standard literature. With the Peabody Institute, they have established a program which enables them to commission new works by contemporary composers.
The Washington Post says "The Peabody Trio is an outstanding ensemble of young musicians who play with the romantic fervor of the early 20th century greats, and the fact that among their specialties is the performance of new music does not seem to have tempered these inclinations at all."
The program will include: Trio in E Minor, Hoboken XV:12 by Franz Joseph Hayden, a trio by Charles Ives and a trio by Maurice Ravel.
