Proving Once Again Telluride Is The Big Time

Trio Solisti with Ayano Ninomiya, violin; David Harding, viola

In June, the Telluride Musicfest celebrates eight years in town performing chamber music concerts in a private home. The artistic director of the Telluride Musicfest is the bravura violinist Maria Bachmann of the Trio Solisti, who razzle-dazzles with her equally gifted colleagues, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach and pianist Jon Klibonoff.

“…Trio Solisti was consistently brilliant..dangerous and
radical…and compelling, " raved The New York Times.

Michael Barrett, artistic director of the top-tier Caramoor Performing Arts Center probably would not argue the point. He has booked the group for the first in a series of concerts in and around New York and Washington over the coming months.

REVIEW: Trio Solisti, Cafe Style

"The trio excels at presenting light classical fare in a manner that seems anything but lightweight…sumptuous soaring lines, sultry countermelodies, and articulated 
dance rhythms with muscular clarity…dizzying, dovetailing entrances and 
bumptious swing…"

– Musical America, May 2009
