The Horszowski Trio in Keene
July 03. 2013 5:52AM
TRIPLE VISION: The Horszowski Trio (Jesse Mills, Rieko Aizawa and Raman Ramakrishnan) plays Hadyn's “Gypsy” trio in G Major, Tchaikovsky's “Trio in A Minor, Op. 50,” and Joan Tower's trio “For Daniel” in a 7:30 p.m. program Wednesday, July 10, at the Congregation Ahavas Achim, 84 Hastings Ave., Keene. Admission is $25; free for middle-school and high-school students. For details, call 593-5245 or log onto electricearthconcerts.org.
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
