 Trio Cavatina

Trio Cavatina

No upcoming performance this season

Pianist IEVA JOKUBAVICIUTE, violinist HARUMI RHODES, and cellist PRISCILLA LEE formed TRIO CAVATINA in 2005 at the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont. Deeply rooted in a strong sense of shared musical values, Trio Cavatina has rapidly emerged as one of today's outstanding chamber ensembles whose committed music-making prompted Harris Goldsmith to describe the trio, in his 2008 Musical America article, as offering 'potent, intense interpretations'.


As the winner of the 2009 Naumburg International Chamber Music Competition, Trio Cavatina made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2010 with scintillating performances of two monumental Beethoven trios, Leon Kirchner's second trio, and the world premiere performance of 'Faces of Guernica' written for them by Richard Danielpour. They also made their San Francisco debut earlier that season at Herbst Theater (San Francisco Performances) as well as their Philadelphia debut as one of the youngest ensembles to perform on the prestigious Philadelphia Chamber Music Society concert series. During the summer of 2010, the Trio gave concerts and appeared in mixed programs at the Kingston Chamber Music Festival, Newburyport Chamber Music Festival, and at Music in the Vineyards in Napa Valley.


Within only two years of their formation, Trio Cavatina made its New York City and Boston debuts on the New School's Schneider Concert Series and at Jordan Hall respectively. They also gave notable debut appearances on Kneisel Hall's “Emerging Artists” Series in Maine, at Union College in Schenectady, New York, at Merkin Hall in New York City, at the Brattleboro Music Center in Vermont, and at the Eastern Shore Chamber Music Festival in Maryland. They were also selected to perform at the closing concert of the Chamber Music America Conference in New York City.


In addition to their command of the classical and romantic repertoire, Trio Cavatina is committed to collaborating with living composers and to weaving 20th century repertoire into their programs. They have worked closely with American composers Leon Kirchner and Richard Danielpour and will premiere a new work written for them by David Ludwig in the fall of 2010 in Chicago.
