San Diego, CA – On Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 6:15pm, the Neave Trio (Anna Williams, violin; Mikhail Veselov, cello; Eri Nakamura, piano) performs a free concert at the Rancho Bernardo Library (17110 Bernardo Center Drive), sponsored by the nonprofit Friends of the Rancho Bernardo Library as a cultural service to the community.  

Neave Trio’s program includes Debussy’s Piano Trio in G Major; Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67; and Piazzolla’s Las Cuatros Estaciones Porteñas (Four Seasons of Buenos Aires). Recordings of the Debussy and Piazzolla were released on Neave Trio’s two most recent CDs.  

Their sophomore album, French Moments (Chandos Records, June 2018), features the only known piano trios by Debussy, Fauré, and Roussel. According to BBC Music Magazine, “The performances balance passion with sensitivity and grace,” while The Strad praises the trio’s “eloquent phrasing and deft control of textures.”   Celebrating Piazzolla (Azica Records, November 2018), honors the music of Astor Piazzolla with Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas and new arrangements by Leonardo Suárez Paz for piano trio and mezzo-soprano Carla Jablonski. Neave’s 2016 debut album, American Moments, was released to critical acclaim on Chandos Records, and features works by Korngold, Foote, and Bernstein.  

Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio 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, claiming, “their unanimity, communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility rate first tier.  

Neave has performed at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide, including Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, 92nd Street Y, Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center/La Jolla Music Society, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Music Series (United Kingdom), and the Samoylov and Rimsky Korsakow Museums' Chamber Music Series in St. Petersburg (Russia). The trio has also appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country and held residency positions at Brown University, ArtsAhimsa Chamber Music Festival, San Diego State University as the first ever Fisch/Axelrod Trio-in-- Residence, and the Banff Centre (Canada), among many other institutions. In the fall of 2017, the Trio joined the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as an Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.
