Bright Sheng: Four Movements
Tchaikovsky: Trio in A minor, Op. 50, “in Memory
of a Great Artist”
Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills first performed with Raman Ramakrishnan,
founding cellist of the prize-winning Daedalus Quartet, at the Kinhaven Music
School over twenty years ago, when they were children. In New York City, they
met pianist Rieko Aizawa, who had made her U.S. concerto debuts at the Kennedy
Center and Carnegie Hall.
Ms. Aizawa was the last pupil of the legendary pianist, Mieczysław
Horszowski (1892-1993), at the Curtis Institute. The Trio takes inspiration
from Horszowski’s musicianship, integrity, and humanity. Like Horszowski, the
Trio presents repertoire spanning the traditional and the contemporary.
Free parking is available at the church, in nearby
municipal lots, and on the street.
