Mendelssohn - Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49
The most sought-after trio in the world, the Grammy nominated Eroica Trio thrills audiences with their flawless technical virtuosity, irresistible enthusiasm, and sheer elegance. Whether playing the great standards of the piano trio repertoire or daring contemporary works, these three young women electrify the concert stage with their performances of depth and precision.
The Trio has established a unique identity by creating innovative programs that span 300 years of music. They are also strong champions of new composers. For the Houston Friends of Music March 31 concert, they will perform the Kevin Puts composition commissioned in 2007.
Audiences continue to applaud the style and variety of the Eroica Trio. “These ladies have it all: technique, temperament, interpretive savvy, good looks, and a winning stage presence” (The Los Angeles Times). As critics have noted, “it’s been decades since this country has produced a chamber music organization with this much passion.” (The San Francisco Examiner).
The 2008-2009 season marks the 20th anniversary for the Eroica Trio and the return to Houston with the Houston Friends of Music.
