Neave Trio Performs on Outdoor Concert Presented by the Newport Music Festival
On Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at 7pm, the Neave Trio returns to the Newport Music Festival, performing outdoors in a heated tent at the The Chanler at Cliff Walk (117 Memorial Blvd | Newport, RI). Tickets are available at www.newportmusic.org/concerts/neave
Presented as part of Newport Music Festival’s Fall Mini Festival, this program showcases the vast range of Neave Trio’s repertoire, from Haydn’s Piano Trio No. 28 in D major, Hob. XV:16 to Piazzolla’s La Muerte del Ángel. The Neave will also present two works from its critically acclaimed album, Her Voice (Chandos Records), which was named one of the best recordings of 2019 by both The New York Times and BBC Radio 3.
Composed late in her career, Amy Beach’s Piano Trio, Op.150 incorporates lush, romantic melodies over a variety of textures, tones, and impressionistic colors. Of their recording, The Strad praises, “The dreamy cello melody of the opening Allegro - luxuriously played by Mikhail Veselov - blooms into tender interplay between the strings. Violinist Anna Williams echoes Veselov’s delicate touch, underpinned by eminently sensitive pianism from Eri Nakamura. It’s a finely etched and persuasive performance…” One of her most prominent pieces, Rebecca Clarke’s Piano Trio showcases her unique harmonic language, influenced by both the French and British styles of the early 20th century, as well as by folk music. Gramophone described it as “sumptuously recorded … a taut and vivid interpretation.”
