Arts in the Village Presents the Boston Trio on January 26
On Saturday, January 26, Arts in the Village is pleased to present a concert featuring the Boston Trio. The ensemble will be performing works by Schumann, Dvorak, and the contemporary American composer John Musto.
The members of the Trio, violinist Irina Muresanu, cellist Denise Djokic, and pianist Heng-Jin Park, each have distinguished careers as soloists, recitalists, and chamber musicians, and have appeared with major orchestras and premier chamber music festivals throughout the United States and Europe. Ms. Djokic, one of Canada’s most celebrated musicians, has earned worldwide acclaim for her powerful interpretations and bold command of the instrument. She has been soloist with major orchestras in Canada, the US, and Europe. Ms. Muresanu, who has appeared as a soloist with the Boston Philharmonic, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and other top international orchestras, is the recipient of top prizes at the Montreal International Competition and the Queen Elizabeth Violin Competition. Ms. Heng-Jin Park, who made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at the age of 15, is the founding member of the Boston Trio and the Artistic Director of the Killington Music Festival in Vermont.
Recent highlights for the Boston Trio include performances at UCLA and the Redwood Arts Council, their debut at the Sanibel Chamber Music Festival, performances at the Rockport Chamber Music Festival and Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, and a performance of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Boston Classical Orchestra. Other recent performances include the Trio’s debut at Merkin Hall, nationally televised performances at the Belgrade Music Festival at the Kolarac Foundation Hall in Serbia, a tour of Utah, and numerous other concerts across North America.
The Trio has been invited to perform on numerous prestigious chamber music series including the Bank of America Celebrity Series; Seiji Ozawa Hall in Tanglewood; the Bay Chamber Concerts in Rockport, Maine; the Harvard Musical Association concerts; Concerts at the Point in Westport, MA; the Kalliroscope Gallery concerts at the Indian Hill Music Center; Brigham Young University in Utah; Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum; the Howland Chamber Music Circle; the North Pointe Series in New York; the Fitchburg Performing Arts Series; and the Stockbridge Summer Music Series.
The Trio has also performed on the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s “Prelude” Concerts; at Rockefeller University in NYC; the Longy School of Music; Nichols College; and as soloists with the Newton Symphony, performing Beethoven’s “Triple Concerto.” Boston Trio collaborations include a concert in Jordan Hall with the Borromeo Quartet to benefit the Red Cross for the victims of September 11, and performances with the Bill T. Jones Dance Company. The Boston trio, who are frequent guests on “Classics in the Morning” and “Classical Performances” on Boston’s WGBH Radio, released their first CD in March 2000 featuring music of Ravel, Brahms, and Suk, and in 2013, their latest CD recorded in Jordan Hall will be released on the Centaur label.
