The Boston-based Neave Trio is making its Lincoln Center debut on July 26 as a part of the 2019 Mostly Mozart Festival. It will be performing Astor Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” in David Geffen Hall on July 26 and 27 at 6:30 p.m.
Formed in 2010, Neave Trio is made up of violinist Anna Williams, pianist Eri Nakamura and cellist Mikhail Veselov. Since its formation, the trio has performed in various venues and festivals in the U.S., and has also travelled internationally for a European tour.
Its debut at the Lincoln Center lands on the festival’s 53rd year. Each year, the Lincoln Center hosts a series of performances in music, dance and theatre to celebrate Mozart.
For its debut, Neave Trio will perform one of the pieces from its latest album, “Celebrating Piazzolla,” which honors the Argentine tango composer’s legacy through arrangements by Piazzolla’s colleague José Bragato and protégé Leonardo Suárez Paz.
The piece, “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires,” will be performed as pre-concert recitals prior to the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra’s program, which includes Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.”
Neave Trio often collaborates across mediums and with living composers to create innovative concert presentations. It has worked with filmmaker Amanda Alvarez Díaz to create a music video of Piazzolla’s “Otoño Porteño.” Other collaborations include performances with Blythe Barton Dance Company, projection artist Ryan Brady, and the interactive concert series “STEIN2.0” with composer Amanuel Zarzowski.
