Photo 32 The gravitational center of the Telluride Musicfest, June 23 – July 3, is the founding trio, The Trio Solisti: cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach, pianist Jon Klibonoff, and the event’s artistic director, violinist Maria Bachmann. The group is renowned worldwide for sterling technical chops and no-holds-barred passion and lyricism. They play as one with perfect complicity.

“The most exciting piano trio in America,” raved The New Yorker.

Like the Telluride Playwrights Festival, Telluride Musicfest is not a high profile event on Telluride’s summer Festival calender: except like the heavies – Mountainfilm in Telluride and Telluride Film Festival – both attract world class talent. Case in point for Musicfest, pianist Adam Neiman. Adam joins Maria and the Trio for the 8th annual four-concert series: “From Russia with Love.”

Born in 1978, Adam Neiman captured the attention of audiences and critics alike since his concerto debut at 11 in Los Angeles’ Royce Hall. Today he is hailed as one of the premiere pianists of his generation, praised for possessing a truly rare blend of power, bravura, imagination, sensitivity, and technical precision. With a burgeoning international career and an encyclopedic repertoire that spans over fifty concertos, Neiman has performed as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Belgrade, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Saint Louis, San Francisco, Umbria, and Utah, as well as with the New York Chamber Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington D.C.

Neiman’s connection to Telluride Musicfest dates back to 2000, when he appeared in Festival producer/documentary filmmaker Josh Aronson’s PBS documentary, “Playing for Real.”  Bachmann’s choice of Neiman to pinch hit for Klibonoff on the 2010 program is timely and apt: in November 2009 Neiman released a CD of solo piano music by Anton Arensky, one of the Russian composers featured in the series.

The first three Telluride Musicfest concerts take place in a private home, and the last concert on July 3 takes place at the Palm Theater. All concerts begin at 7:30
