VIOLIN CELLO PIANO
Hailed by The New York Times as “impressive, lithe, persuasive,” the Horszowski Trio has established itself as an eloquent chamber ensemble.
Two-time Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills first performed with Raman Ramakrishnan, founding cellist of the prize-winning Daedalus Quartet, at the Kinhaven Music School over twenty years ago as children. Later they met pianist Rieko Aizawa, who had made her U.S. debuts at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall with a conductor Alexander Schneider. Their musical bonds were strengthened at various schools and festivals, including the Juilliard School and the Marlboro Festival. Ms. Aizawa was the last pupil of the legendary pianist, Mieczysław Horszowski at the Curtis Institute. The Trio takes inspiration from Mr. Horszowski’s musicianship, integrity, and humanity.
Formed in 2011, they have been booked for numerous concerts in the U.S. and tours of Japan and India. They have successfully risen in the chamber music world, the New Yorker has called them "the most compelling American group to come on the scene." It quickly lead to their European debut, including a performance at London's Wigmore Hall.
Based in New York City, the Horszowski Trio is Artists-in-Residence at the Longy School of Music of Bard College. They can be heard on Bridge and AVIE Records.
