Hailed by critics for its “bright and radiant music making” (Robert Sherman, WQXR Radio), the Neave Trio has been described as “A revelation” (San Diego Story) and “A brilliant trio...” (MusicWeb International), who have “exceeded the gold standard and moved on to platinum” (Fanfare Magazine). The Boston Musical Intelligencer ranked the Neave Trio among the finest chamber ensembles of their generation, writing: “it is inconceivable that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going” (Brightness and Radiance at Rockport, Steven Ledbetter).
Trio members hail from the United States, Japan and Russia. One of the finest emerging young chamber ensembles, the Neave Trio has been enjoying tremendous international success on concert series and at festivals worldwide. In the USA, the Trio has appeared in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center/La Jolla Music Society, Fontana Chamber Arts, the American Dvorak 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 Brown University Orchestra, 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 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 UCSD’sArtPower!
