We are delighted to announce that Neave Trio – violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura – is joining the Jensen Artists roster for management and PR!
Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. WQXR explains, "'Neave' is actually a Gaelic name meaning 'bright' and 'radiant', both of which certainly apply to this trio's music making." The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave's debut at the Rockport International Chamber Music Festival in its "Best of 2014" roundup, writing, "it is inconceivable that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going."
Watch Neave Trio perform the third movement from Haydn's Piano Trio No. 39:
Neave has performed at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, 92nd Street Y, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, La Jolla Music Society, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series (United Kingdom), and the Samoylov and Rimsky Korsakow Museums' Chamber Music Series in St. Petersburg (Russia). The trio has also appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country and held residency positions at Brown University, ArtsAhimsa Chamber Music Festival, San Diego State University as the first ever Fisch/Axelrod Trio-in-Residence, the Banff Centre (Canada), among many other institutions. In fall 2017, the Trio will join the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as an Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.
Neave Trio strives to champion new works by living composers and reach wider audiences through innovative concert presentations, regularly collaborating with artists of all mediums. These collaborations include performances with the Blythe Barton Dance Company, which earned "Best Dance Production" at the 2015 San Diego International Fringe Festival; projection artist Ryan Brady, who has added visual components to Neave's performances of standard repertoire; the interactive concert series "STEIN2.0," launched in collaboration with composer Amanuel Zarzowski; Klee Musings by acclaimed American composer Augusta Read Thomas, which was premiered by Neave; and the upcoming genre-defying short film, 4Seasons, based on the tango music of Astor Piazzolla, in collaboration with filmmaker Pablo Berron and the Blythe Barton Dance Company.
Recordings include Neave's 2016 debut American Moments on Chandos Records, featuring works by Korngold, Foote, and Bernstein; and an upcoming all-Piazzolla album for Azica Records, which will feature all new arrangements of Piazzolla's works for piano trio and voice by Argentinian arranger, Leonardo Suarez Paz. This album will feature mezzo-soprano and Metropolitan Opera star, Carla Jablonski.
