Fauré – Trio in D Minor, Op. 120
Joan Tower – For Daniel
Schubert – Trio No. 2 in E-flat major, Op. 100, D. 929
Horszowski Trio (Jesse Mills, violin; Raman Ramakrishnan, cello; Rieko Aizawa, piano)
Two-time Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills joins with the founding cellist of the prize-winning Daedalus Quartet and acclaimed pianist Rieko Aizawa in this celebrated ensemble. Named for legendary pianist and Curtis Institute of Music teacher Mieczysław Horszowski, the Trio takes inspiration from Horszowski’s musicianship, integrity and humanity.
In their Houston debut they perform Fauré’s gracefully lyrical Trio, American composer Joan Tower’s elegiac For Daniel, and Schubert’s beloved Trio No. 2 in E-flat major.
