This special streamed performance of Neave Trio premiered Sunday, May 23 on our Youtube Channel. The talented trio performed Clara Schumann - Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17 and Piazzolla - The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 17 is widely regarded as one of her best-known compositions. It was written after she endured a great personal loss and is full of heartfelt melodies and beautiful harmonies. You can hear her brilliant pianism, and arguably, musical inspiration that she provided to some of her famous male composer contemporaries. Lili Boulanger, noted by Gabriel Fauré as an incredible prodigy, was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome (1913). D’un matin de printemps is full of character and joy, though it was the last work she wrote before her death at the very young age of 24.

Neave Trio recorded Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires on its November 2018 album, Celebrating Piazzolla (Azica Records), which captures Piazzolla’s rich legacy through arrangements by one of the composer’s long time colleagues, José Bragato and by a younger protégé, Leonardo Suárez Paz. Gramophone describes their recording as “thrilling,” having “wild energy,” and “electrifying,” while Classics Today writes, “the energetic edginess, the snap, the rhythm sound convincing, totally invigorating, and authentic.”
