Committed to continuing to make music during these challenging times, the Boston-based Neave Trio will give two outdoor performances presented as part of Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ “A Summer of Art, 6 Feet Apart” on Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30 at 7:30pm, both taking place at the School’s Delbridge Patio. The performances are free and open to the public, but reservations are required and can be made online in advance at www.walnuthillarts.org.
On July 29, the Neave Trio will give a one-hour concert featuring music from their 2019 album, Her Voice (Chandos Records), by Amy Beach (Trio in A minor, Op. 150) and Rebecca Clarke (Piano Trio), plus Jennifer Higdon’s “Pale Yellow” and “Fiery Red” from her Piano Trio. Of the album The New York Times reported, “What excellent performances this trio gives here of works that deserve them,” and included the third movement of Clarke’s trio in the “Best 25 Classical Music Tracks of 2019.” Gramophone described the album as, “a splendid introduction to these three pioneering female composers.”
On July 30, the trio joins BodySonnet and Walnut Hill School for the Arts artists-in-residence Moscelyne ParkeHarrison, Jake Nahor, and Sean Lammer to present their new collaboration Volta, a re-imagining of traditional approaches to proscenium performance. BodySonnet dance makers will interpret Rebecca Clarke’s Piano Trio, played live by the Neave Trio. BodySonnet is a traveling collective of contemporary dance makers founded in 2019 by recent graduates of The Juilliard School.
