One of the finest emerging young chamber ensembles, the Neave Trio has been enjoying tremendous international success in concert series and at festivals worldwide. In the USA, the Trio has appeared in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, the 92nd Street Y, Boston’s Jordan Hall, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, La Jolla Music Society, Fontana Chamber Arts, the American Dvorák Society, Laguna Beach Live!, Rockport Chamber Music Festival (as their “Rising Star” Ensemble), Syracuse Friends of Chamber Music, the Los Angeles Music Guild, the La Jolla Athenaeum, and as soloists with the California Chamber Orchestra and the Fall River Symphony Orchestra in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto.

The Neave Trio has been broadcast on WGBH Radio (Boston) WXXI and WNYC Radio (New York) and were featured on the WQXR Radio (NYC) McGraw-Hill Financial Young Artists Showcase.

The Neave Trio is fast distinguishing itself as an ambassador of music to a wider audience through its innovative concert presentations. The trio collaborates with artists of all mediums; recent projects include award-winning and critically acclaimed performances with the Blythe Barton Dance Company at the 2015 San Diego International Fringe Festival as well as UC San Diego’s ArtPower!. In 2014, the Neave Trio launched an interactive concert series which seeks to expand the concert-going experience to a wider audience, using audience participation and social media tools. As part of their mission to create new pathways for classical music and engage a wider audience, the Trio is producing four short films based on Astor Piazzolla's tangos, “The Four Seasons,” in collaboration with filmmaker Bridget Palardy.

The Trio has held several important residency positions including the Fisch/Axelrod Residency at San Diego State University (2012-16), the prestigious Chamber Music Residency at Canada's Banff Centre, at Providence College (Rhode Island) and the Gann Academy, Concord Academy, Walnut Hill School for the Arts, the ArtsAhimsa Chamber Music Festival and St. Marks International Chamber Music Institute and Festival (all in Massachusetts), as well the Chamber Music Connection (Ohio).

Trio members are graduates of the Yale, Manhattan, Mannes and Longy Schools of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Chopin Academy in Moscow. They have been recipients of the Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Prize, the Gartoff Foundation Prize and the Yale School of Music Chamber Music Prize. The Trio has worked with distinguished artists including Menahem Pressler, Leon Fleischer, Claude Frank, Anne Marie McDermott, Yehudi Wyner, Laura Bossert, Terry King, Pinchas Zukerman, Joseph Kalichstein, Gilbert Kalish, Donald Weilerstein, Vivian Weilerstein, Robert Mann, and Peter Serkin.

Current recording projects include an all-American début CD, for the Chandos label, featuring works by Korngold, Foote and Bernstein.

Highlights of the season include tours of the US, England and Spain, and the world premiere -at their Chicago début- of a commissioned work by the major American composer Augusta Read Thomas.


 

"This trio plays with an excitement I’ve not seen in many moons. They are fabulous. And I mean FABULOUS. The audience went nuts over them. Many said it was the best concert they’d seen in years.”

- Judith Oishei, The Athenaeum, La Jolla, CA

"I’ve claimed repeatedly that we are blessed to be living in a golden age of . . . chamber music . . . we have exceeded the gold standard and have now moved on to platinum. Yes, the Neave Trio is that good . . . This quite simply is the most rapturously beautiful performance of Fauré’s Trio I’ve ever heard. It blows away . . . countless others I’ve heard . . . among which are the Beaux Arts . . . You can look for this on my 2014 Want List, because it’s definitely going to be on it.”

- Jerry Dubins, Fanfare Magazine 

"We had the remarkable Beaux Arts Trio for a good half century . . . [now] the Neave Trio presented indications that another young ensemble is poised to join their ranks . . . a delectable joyful surprise . . . It is inconceivable to me that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going.”

- Steven Ledbetter, Boston Musical Intelligencer 

"The ensemble displayed beautiful tone, precise synchronization and remarkable balance . . . A consummate ensemble."

- Marcio Bezerra, Palm Beach Daily News 

"NEAVE is actually a Gaelic name meaning ‘bright’ and ‘radiant,’ both of which certainly apply to this trio’s music making.”

- Robert Sherman, WQXR NYC Radio

"My introduction to the Neave Trio was a revelation."

- Charlene Baldridge, San Diego News

"BRAVOS OF 2015 [Headline] . . . energized concert dance and chamber music that cut to the bone."

- Kris Eitland, San Diego Story

"RECORDING OF THE MONTH . . . emphatically worth hearing simply for the inspired quality of the music-making . . . I do hope that an established recording label will get hold of this brilliant trio and provide them with the opportunity to record more . . . It was a joy to listen to this disc.”

- Gwyn Parry-Jones, Music Web International

"An historic concert . . . In the first movement [Korngold Trio], there are near-instant changes in color between phrases. The players of the Neave Trio were able to take those turns on a dime . . . the ensemble’s balance was on point through the entire concert . . . polished and energetic . . . The Trio takes its name from the Gaelic word 'neave' meaning bright and radiant. Whether their name or their sound came first, it seems an appropiate fit." 

- Kevin Wilt, Palm Beach Arts Paper
