Event Information

Fresh off the release of their 2017 album Trios, Bearthoven performs four NYC premieres by a collection of America’s strongest upcoming compositional voices — Kristina Wolfe, Adam Roberts, Shelley Washington, and Scott Wollschleger.

Bearthoven [ \’bâr-toh-vən\ ] is a piano trio creating a new repertoire for a familiar instrumentation by commissioning works from leading young composers. Karl Larson (piano), Pat Swoboda (bass), and Matt Evans (percussion) have combined their individual voices and diverse musical backgrounds to create a versatile trio focused on frequent and innovative commissioning. Bearthoven is rapidly building a diverse repertoire by challenging composers to apply their own voice to an instrumentation that, while common amongst jazz and pop idioms, is currently foreign in the contemporary classical world.

Program:
Shelley Washington — Silk (2017)*
Kristina Wolfe — Near Sky (2017)*
Adam Roberts — happy/angry music (2017)*
Scott Wollschleger — American Dream (2017)*
* NYC Premiere
