Description:

Part of the 2023 Winter Chamber Music Festival

Jesse Mills, violin; Ole Akahoshi, cello; Rieko Aizawa, piano

The Los Angeles Times declares, “The Horszowskis are power players… Memorably monumental.” Taking its inspiration from pianist Mieczysław Horszowski, who instructed the trio’s pianist Rieko Aizawa at the Curtis Institute, the ensemble’s repertoire includes music of Fauré, Granados, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Martinů, and Villa-Lobos—composers who collaborated with Horszowski during his lifetime. The group has performed the complete cycles of piano trios by Beethoven, Schumann, and Brahms, and actively cultivates lesser-known treasures from the trio repertoire by Arno Babajanian, Leonard Bernstein, Vincent d’Indy, and Morton Feldman, among others. Their collaborations have included composers John Harbison, Charles Wuorinen, and Joan Tower, and chamber musicians such as the Escher Quartet’s Aaron Boyd, the Tokyo String Quartet’s Kikuei Ikeda, Masumi Per Rostad, and the Ying Quartet’s Phillip Ying. The trio is Ensemble-in-Residence at the Longy School of Music of Bard College and at the Leschetizky Association in New York City.
