Event description

Description

On January 24, 2019 at 7 PM, the Meadowlark Piano Trio—said to possess, “a deep-rooted musical intuition”—will present an evening of chamber music by Schubert and Shostakovich at the Community Music Center of Boston. Schubert’s noble, exuberant, and lyrical trio in B-flat will open the program, followed by Shostakovich’s tragic E- minor trio—written in response to the death of the composer’s friend. Beauty and Brutality promises to be an exciting and poignant experience.

The Meadowlark Piano Trio (Janny Joo, violin; Timothy Paek, cello; April Sun, piano) hails from America’s heartland. Formed by three best friends in 2012, the trio has since performed nationwide to great acclaim. They were named semi-finalists in the 2017 Fischoff International Chamber Music Competition. Festival appearances include Toronto Summer Music Festival, Garth Newel Music Center, St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar, Avaloch Music Residency, and Caroga Lake Music Festival, where the trio was the first ensemble-in-residence. The Meadowlark Trio has performed in diverse concert venues, ranging from the Carnegie Room Concerts and Spectrum Music Series in New York, to Bing Concert Hall in California, to house concerts in Montana. The trio’s members received advanced degrees from the Shepherd School at Rice University, and the Cleveland Institute of Music. Their mentors include musicians from the Chiara Quartet, Cavani Quartet, Bayla Keyes, and Daniel Shapiro.

The Meadowlark Piano Trio looks beyond the conventional model of classical music. In addition to repertoire from the canon, the trio participates actively in the creation of new music and has commissioned multiple works by living composers such as Nels Drue Daily, Stephanie Boyd, and Thomas Dougherty. The trio is deeply committed to community outreach and performs regularly in schools, nursing homes, community centers, and hospitals. For the 2018-19 season, the Meadowlark Trio members are Artist Fellows for Music for Food (musicforfood.net), where they present concerts and workshops throughout the greater Boston area to benefit local food pantries.
