Celebrated Piano Trio, Triple Helix, Joins RSC as Ensemble in Residence
Described by The Boston Globe
as “sophisticated in musical detail, interactive on every level, uninhibited in emotion, and…touched by a special grace,” Triple Helix Piano Trio joins the The Rivers School Conservatory as the Ensemble in Residence for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Triple Helix Piano Trio will inaugurate its new residency with performances of the complete Beethoven piano trios in a three-concert series entitled Beethoven and His Vibrant Legacy. The piano trio will also direct master classes throughout the academic year for students.
The “discussion-recital” series will focus on Beethoven and his historical context through the lens of his complete works for piano trio. Beethoven’s piano trios span his entire compositional output, serving as a microcosm of his entire oeuvre, and providing a survey of his musical process. The first concert, on January 19, 2013, will focus on how Beethoven dealt with the prevailing influence of Haydn as he sought to find a personal voice in a world dominated by the older composer.
