GROTON -- The Neave Trio -- violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura -- bring their radiant brand of cutting-edge chamber music to Groton School's Gammons Recital Hall on January 7, 2018 at 3 p.m.

One of the finest emerging young chamber ensembles, the Neave Trio has appeared in concerts and festivals worldwide, including at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and Boston's Jordan Hall and for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center/La Jolla Music Society, Fontana Chamber Arts, the American Dvorak Society, Laguna Beach Live!, Rockport Chamber Music Festival (as their "Rising Star" Ensemble), the Los Angeles Music Guild, and as soloists with the California Chamber Orchestra in Beethoven's Triple Concerto.

Hailed by critics for its "bright and radiant music making" (Robert Sherman, WQXR Radio) and praised for its "heart on-sleeve performances" (Classical New Jersey), the Neave Trio has been described as "a revelation" (San Diego Story) and "a brilliant trio" (MusicWeb International), who have "exceeded the gold standard and moved on to platinum" (Fanfare magazine). The Boston Musical Intelligencer blog ranked the Neave Trio among the finest chamber ensembles of their generation, writing: "... it is inconceivable that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going"

Trio members, from the United States, Japan and Russia, are graduates of the Yale, Manhattan, Mannes, and Longy schools of music; the Cleveland Institute of Music; and the Chopin Academy in Moscow.


Among them, the musicians have received the Lilian Fuchs Chamber Music Prize, the Gartoff Foundation Prize, and the Yale School of Music Chamber Music Prize.

This event, like all performances in Groton's Edward B. Gammons Concert Series, is free and open to the public.
