Trio Solisti

Trio Solisti, L-​​R; Alexsis Pia Gerlach, Jon Klibinoff & Maria Bachman

Longtime Maverick favorite, Trio Solisti has been hailed “The most exciting piano trio in America” by The New Yorker magazine. Well versed in classical styles the trio also embrace new music, with commissions and world premieres of works by Paul Moravec, Lowell Liebermann, and Philip Glass. In 2012 the trio will be premiering a commissioned work by Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts and in 2013 they will perform a new work by Lowell Liebermann.

 

 

Trio Solisti has performed at The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center’s Great Performers Series, Town Hall’s Peoples’ Symphony Concerts, the Wolf Trap Center, and the Tuscan Sun Festival in Cortona, Italy. The trio has performed at many festivals both as a trio and as individual guest artists, including Bravo! Vail, Caramoor, Maverick Concerts, Skaneateles, Philip Glass’ Days and Nights Festival in Carmel, the Laguna Beach Festival, Amelia Island Festival, Sanibel Island Festival, the Moab Festival in Utah, and the Cape Cod Festival.

The founding ensemble of Telluride MusicFest in Telluride, CO, they perform there with guest artists and have had both Philip Glass and Paul Moravec in residence.

Individual members frequently perform with orchestras. In 2010, Mr. Klibonoff performed with the Virginia Symphony and the Buffalo Philharmonic. Ms. Bachmann performed Philip Glass’s Double Concerto with the Orchestra of the Hague, the world première of Paul Moravec’s Violin Concerto at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA, and John Corigliano’s Red Violin Concerto at Chicago’s Millenium Park.

…if Cage intended the performers of “4’33” ” to keep quiet, he did not mean for the work to be heard as silence. He wrote it for the pianist David Tudor to perform in a recital at Maverick Concert Hall, near Woodstock, N.Y., in August 1952. The hall, which still hosts an ambitious summer series, is an open barn, set amid acres of woodland. Part of its charm is that the sounds of the environment — birds, crickets, the wind rustling through the trees, the patter of rain — mingle with the artful tones the musicians produce.”
