Chamber Music Monterey Bay presents the Horzsowski Trio at Sunset Center

Horszowski Trio

At 7:30 pm on Saturday, February 1, 2020, Chamber Music Monterey Bay will present the Horszowski Trio at Sunset Center in Carmel. The program will consist of Erich Korngoldls’s Suite for two Violins, Cello and Piano left hand, Schumann’s Piano Trio No. 2 in D Minor and lera Auerbach’s Trio No. 1.

The Trio takes its inspiration from the musicianship, integrity, and humanity of the pre-eminent pianist Mieczysław Horszowski (1892–1993); the ensemble’s pianist, Rieko Aizawa, was Horszowski’s last pupil at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. In New York City, Ms. Aizawa met violinist Jesse Mills and cellist Raman Ramakrishnan, who had a decades-long musical partnership going back to their days at Juilliard and Marlboro, and the three immediately felt the spark of a unique connection.

In March 2019, the Horszowski Trio made its London debut in a sold-out concert presented by Wigmore Hall. In the same season, they also appeared at the 92nd Street Y in New York City; the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia; Schubert Club in Saint Paul, Minnesota; Spivey Hall in Atlanta; Bowdoin Music Festival in Maine; UCLA in Los Angeles; Dresden’s Moritzburg Festival (Germany); and venues in Boston, San Francisco, Canada, and Japan, among others. In addition, they released a recording of the complete piano trios by Robert Schumann on AVIE Records, receiving tremendous acclaim: “great care and affection” (BBC Radio); “intoxicating” (Gramophone); “exciting and deeply felt” (Strings); “fresh, supple and fantastic” (The Strad).

Learn about this concert’s composers and their works. Gain deeper insights into the music with Kai Christiansen, noted San Francisco musicologist and founder of earsense.org an online chamber music exploratorium. The Lecture starts at 6:45 PM in the Sunset Center concert hall, and is free-of-charge
