Gramercy Trio 

This is the third year the wonderful Gramercy Trio has performed at the Music Center. This concert is connecting with our theme for the year playing Mozart’s C Major trio K 548, written at 32 yrs old and Mendelssohn’s D Minor, Op. 49 at 30 yrs old. With these pieces, all three instruments have exemplary moments to shine!

THE GRAMERCY TRIO (SHARAN LEVENTHAL, VIOLIN; JONATHAN MILLER, CELLO; RANDALL HODGKINSON, PIANO) TOURS THE COUNTRY PRESENTING CONCERTS AND RESIDENCIES, WITH PROGRAMS THAT INCLUDE STANDARD REPERTOIRE AND NEW WORKS. THEY HAVE COMMISSIONED AND PREMIERED TRIOS BY COMPOSERS SUCH AS GUNTHER SCHULLER, SCOTT WHEELER, LEE HYLA, GRAWEMEYER-AWARD WINNING BRITISH COMPOSER SIMON BAINBRIDGE, TANGO ARTIST SONIA POSSETTI, AND ACCLAIMED JAZZ PIANIST AND COMPOSER, FRED HERSCH.

THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS CALLED THEIR PERFORMANCES “DISTINCTIVE AND MEMORABLE… BEAUTIFULLY WROUGHT AND SENSITIVELY BALANCED” (ALLAN KOZINN), GIVING “THE REFRESHING IMPRESSION THAT EVERYTHING THEY WERE DOING WAS FUN AND WORTH HEARING” (ANNE MIDGETTE). JEREMY EICHLER OF THE BOSTON GLOBE CALLED THEIR PROJECT ‘WHERE SOUND AND MOTION MEET’ “AN INGENIOUS PROGRAM… THE GRAMERCY’S PERFORMANCES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT HAD THE KIND OF KINESTHETIC ENERGY AND ZEST THAT HINTED AT THE POSITIVE FEEDBACK LOOP BETWEEN MUSIC AND DANCE… THE ANIMATING IDEA OF A DELIGHTFUL EVENING.”
