The Horszowski Trio in Keene
The program includes three works, each defining the style of its period: Haydn's ';Gypsy'; trio in G Major, his most well known piano trio with its final Hungarian Rondo, followed by the preeminent American composer Joan Tower's trio ';For Daniel';, an intense and expressive single movement work composed in 2004 and dedicated to her nephew, Daniel MacArthur. Tchaikovsky's trio in A minor, Op. 50, ';In memory of a great man'; rounds out the concert. Dedicated to the composer's close friend and mentor, Nikolai Rubenstein, the piece is a vast and rich two-movement work comprised of an introspective and brooding first movement followed by a set of variations that build to a state of joy and ecstasy. Tchaikovsky's piano trio is one of his few works of chamber music and is written in a highly virtuosic and emotional style -; many pianists claim that this is one of the most difficult Romantic piano parts ever written.

About Electric Earth Concerts:
Founded in January, 2012 by Artistic Directors Jonathan Bagg and Laura Gilbert, (Artistic Directors) and Miki Osgood (Managing Director) Electric Earth Concerts is a year-round series based in Peterborough and Jaffrey, in Southwestern New Hampshire. EEC's name and philosophy are inspired by Beethoven's words ';Music is the electric soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.'; Beethoven felt ideas of mysterious and divine origin come to fruition when given voice in the ';electric'; language of music, and Electric Earth Concerts honors his idea that music is fertile ground for the spirit. At the heart of the organization is a desire to make music in an environment alive and open to creative discovery. EEC's mission is twofold: to present diverse, challenging, and often interdisciplinary concerts in acoustically fine locations around the region, and to bring music to places where it can make a difference-- to schools, rehabilitation centers, and homes for the disabled. EEC co-founder Jonathan Bagg says ';We believe the enlightening and healing power of music should know no boundaries.'; EEC's entire 2013 season can be seen at:Electricearthconcerts.org
