Soon after their formation, the Horszowski Trio gave several concerts in Boston and New York, and they were received with much acclaim. The Trio is thrilled to announce many new engagements coming in, including several more New York concerts, performances in Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Colorado, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Connecticut, among others!

The Horszowski Trio is also excited to play at the Bard Music Festival in August ‘12, featuring music of Saint-Saëns.  As a young man in 1909, Mr. Mieczyslaw Horszowski met the 74-year-old Saint-Saëns in Nice, France...

The Horszowski Trio has just returned from a tour of upstate New York. Beginning with a residency in Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival (read a review here), next they traveled to the Bard Festival, where they opened the season with a performance of Saint-Saëns’ Trio No. 1 and Piano Quartet. Steve Smith from The New York Times reviewed the concert favorably, calling the trio “lithe and persuasive.” After Bard, they went to Meredith, NY, where they gave the season-finale concert for the Honest Brook Chamber Music Festival.

The Horszowski Trio is pleased that their first season has been very exciting and successful! Their first commercial CD was released by Bridge Records last fall. They recorded “Lonesome Roads” written by the American composer, Dan Visconti (click here for more information).

One of the collaborations they enjoyed this season was Rorem’s “The Auden Poems” with the tenor, Matthew Anderson, on the Friends of Chamber Music in Troy, NY. Please read the review here written by Geraldine Freedman from The Daily Gazette.

The Horszowski Trio is pleased to announce the release of their debut CD on Bridge Records this month! The disc includes works by Saint-Saëns, Fauré and d’Indy, who all had a personal connection to Mr. Horszowski. The trio dedicates this recording to his wife, Mrs. Bice Horszowski Costa, who now lives in Genova, Italy.

The trio had a nice time visiting Mrs. Horszowski, who was traveling in the U.S. last summer.

Like Mr. Horszowski, the trio is also actively collaborating with composers of their time.  They have been working closely with Joan Tower, frequently performing her powerful work, For Daniel, which was written for the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio in 2003.  Just two months ago, the Horszowski Trio recorded this piece for Naxos, working with the Grammy award-winning producer, Judith Sherman.

Last Autumn, the trio commissioned A Lightning Whisper from composer Noam Sivan, and they premiered it at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre.  This is a beautiful, playful and uplifting piece, as one can imagine from the title.  The composer is now incorporating this work into a large-scale, multi-movement composition called Poems without Words.  The trio is looking forward to this exciting new development.

The Horszowski Trio is delighted to be working with other composers in the coming season:  Eric Moe (the premiere will be in Jaffrey, NH on June 22, 2014); Paul Brantley; Andreia Pinto Correia among others!

The Horszowski Trio has just released video of their live performance of Schubert’s Trio #2 in E-flat Major (the rarely heard original uncut version!) at the Bard Festival last summer. Please visit our LISTEN & WATCH page.

The Horszowski Trio will be concluding their ‘14-’15 season in the coming weeks.  Looking back on this past year, there are many great memories.  One of the highlights was a performance of the Faure Piano Quartet #1 with Kikuei Ikeda, former member of the Tokyo Quartet.  Here is a photo taken with him backstage following our concert together in Troy, NY.  Mr. Ikeda is a legendary violinist, and he is such an elegant violist as well!

We are also thrilled to share a nice review of our debut CD from Gramophone. Please read it here.  Next season, we look forward to some new projects including an All-Schumann cycle, and also some more recordings on Bridge Records.

- October  ’15 -  NEW!

The Horszowski Trio opened their ’15-’16 season at the Alpenglow Chamber Music Festival, of which Rieko and Jesse are co-artistic directors, in Colorado last month.  They performed Beethoven Op.70 #1 & 2, Saint-Saëns #1, Foote #2, and Rachmaninoff #1. They also enjoyed collaborating with a soprano, flutist and hornist. Here are some amazing photos from a 14,265 ft mountaintop. We are also posting a video of mountain goats!
