Trio Solisti, a “trio of soloists,” has forged its reputation as “the most exciting piano trio in America” (The New Yorker Magazine) with a performance style that combines exceptional virtuosity and penetrating musical insight, the result of which yields a cohesive and powerful musical narrative. Possessing a repertoire which encompasses most of the standard trio repertoire as well as many new works by contemporary composers, rave reviews follow the ensemble throughout its concert tours.
Founded in 2001, Trio Solisti has performed at many of America’s important concert venues and cultural institutions. Above and beyond performing together and individually at many music festivals across the country, Trio Solisti has founded Telluride MusicFest, an annual chamber music festival in the mountains of Colorado in which the ensemble presents two weeks of performances with celebrity guest artists. Trio Solisti is Ensemble-in-Residence at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY, an honor that includes the presentation of concerts and master classes, and in-depth work with student composers.
When at the Weis Center, they will perform:
- Rachmaninoff: Trio No. 1 in G minor
- Turina: Trio No. 2 in B minor, Op. 76
- Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. Trio Solisti)
