Horszowski Trio | Personal Memories and New Life

Free – $20.00
Longy’s performance are free and open to the public, but please register in advance.

Nadia Boulanger, an educator at Longy, taught so many talented composers from around the world. “Vers la vie nouvelle (Towards new life)” is one of a very few works she composed, and it is a poignant, honest and emotional piece written after her sister’s death. Chen Yi grew up during the cultural revolution in China. In spite of her tough childhood, her music after she moved to America has blossomed and invoked such a beautiful memory of China. Smetana’s loss of his young child was devastating. He used his musical language to express his grief, anger, loneliness, dreams, and memories of a joyful time with her (incorporating into the piece a poignant melody they used to sing together). This piano trio became one of the most complex yet meaningful masterpieces he created.

In-residence at Longy since 2016, the Horszowski Trio works closely with student chamber music groups in coachings, masterclasses, and performances throughout the academic year. Jesse Mills, Rieko Aizawa, and new member Ole Akahoshi are also faculty artists in Longy’s violin, piano, and cello departments, respectively. Many years of close friendship had created a deep trust between the players, which in turn sparks exhilarating expressive freedom.
