“The Neave Trio gave a beautifully shaped performance…” – The Wall Street Journal

The trio will perform live in Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall and the stream will be available to watch online with advance registration for free (or suggested donation of $10).

This program, comprising timeless and timely repertoire by Shostakovich, Clara Schumann, and Jennifer Higdon paired with visual and audio prompts, seeks to answer the question, “What does it mean to rise?” in all its complexity. The program begins with a wide variety of definitions of what it means “to rise,” and then explores, through both the repertoire and multimedia sources, each definition one by one and asks the audience to consider how the specific definition might impact the way the musical performance is experienced.
Presented as a 50-minute concert with no intermission, this is the first iteration of Rising, a concept the Neave Trio is developing for future programming, including a more extensive multimedia presentation and a choreographed dance piece. Now beginning their fourth year as Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble‑in‑Residence at the Longy School of Music, Rising is the first of four performances the Neave Trio will present in the 2020-2021 season.
