Come see the Neave Trio perform Friday, March 29 at 8:00pm in Old Cabell Hall.
Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio – violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura – has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. WQXR explains, "'Neave' is actually a Gaelic name meaning 'bright' and 'radiant', both of which certainly apply to this trio's music making." The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave in its "Best of 2014" and “Best of 2016” roundups, writing, "it is inconceivable that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going,” and “their unanimity, communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility rate first tier.”
Neave Trio strives to champion new works by living composers and reach wider audiences through innovative concert presentations, regularly collaborating with artists of all mediums. These collaborations include performances with the Blythe Barton Dance Company, which earned "Best Dance Production" at the 2015 San Diego International Fringe Festival; projection artist Ryan Brady, who has added visual components to Neave's performances of standard repertoire; the interactive concert series "STEIN2.0," launched in collaboration with composer Amanuel Zarzowski; Klee Musings by acclaimed American composer Augusta Read Thomas, which was premiered by Neave; and the upcoming short film, 4Seasons, a genre-defying short film based on the tango music of Astor Piazzolla, in collaboration with filmmaker Pablo Berron and the Blythe Barton Dance Company.
Concert highlights for the 2017-18 season include Charleston Chamber Music Society, Rochester Institute of Technology's Performing Artists Concert Series, Harvard Music Association, Concerts at the Point (Westport, MA), Beethoven's Triple Concerto with the Desert Community Orchestra, Ridgecrest Chamber Music Society, Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series (United Kingdom), Brightwaters Library Chamber Series, and Promisek Salon Concerts, among many other performances.
