Adelphi University is pleased to announce that the acclaimed chamber music ensemble Trio Solisti will be performing on Saturday, October  24, at 8:00 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center, Adelphi University, Concert Hall (One South Avenue, Garden City, NY).  Their performance will feature Beethoven’s Piano Trio in B-flat Major (the “Gassenhauer Trio”), Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 3 in C Minor, and Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 2 in A Major, in which the Trio will be joined by award-winning violist Hsin-Yun Huang, currently a faculty member at The Juilliard School.

Trio Solisti, which marks its 11th year as ensemble-in-residence at Adelphi University, has forged its reputation as “the most exciting piano trio in America,” according to The New Yorker, with a performance style that combines exceptional virtuosity and penetrating musical insight.  The acclaimed ensemble possesses a broad repertoire that encompasses most of the standard trio selections, as well as many new works by contemporary composers.  This season, Trio releases its new recording: a two-CD set of the complete Tchaikovsky & Rachmaninoff piano trios.

Founded in 2001, Trio Solisti brings together three of the most sought after artists of their generation – violinist Maria Bachmann, cellist Alexis Pia-Gerlach, and pianist Adam Neiman.  The popular trio has earned a reputation for soulful and passionate performances marked by soloistic virtuosity, electric energy, seamless ensemble playing and thrilling abandon. 

Trio Solisti have performed in major concert halls and cultural institutions across the country, including Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center and more.  Their collaborations have included performances with Yo-Yo Ma, Mstislav Rostropovich, Leonard Slatkin, James DePriest, Dawn Upshaw, Gilbert Kalish, The American String Quartet and the St. Lawrence String Quartet.  For additional information, visit www.triosolisti.com
