Arts in the Village Presents the Neave Trio in Concert on February 29
On Saturday, February 29, the Boston-based Neave Trio will be performing in the Arts in the Village Concert Series. The evening's program features piano trios spanning the Romantic era up to the present day. The works by Rebecca Clarke, Amy Beach, Ceecile Chaminade, and Jennifer Higdon are representative of Neave’s goal of performing works by female composers who paved the way for future generations.
Neave, a Gaelic word for “bright” and “radiant,” with Anna Williams on violin, Mikhail Veselov on cello, and Eri Nakamura on piano, has earned praise for its engaging and cutting-edge performances. They champion new works by living composers through innovative presentations, collaborating with artists of all mediums.
The Trio has performed at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide, including Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the 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). Neave has also appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country and has held residency positions at Brown University, University of Virginia, San Diego State University, and the Banff Centre (Canada). The Trio was in residence at the MIT School of Architecture and Design in collaboration with dancer/choreographer Richard Colton. In the fall of 2017, Neave joined the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.
