The Lysander Piano Trio, a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition, has been praised by the Strad for its “Incredible ensemble, passionate playing, articulate and imaginative ideas, and wide palette of colors.” The Trio has developed a reputation for innovative programming of masterworks from the canon alongside newer works and hidden gems of the repertoire. The Trio will be touring extensively in the 2018-19 season including appearances at Bard Festival, Mobile Chamber Music, National Sawdust, Chamber Music Kelowna, Calgary Pro Musica, Clemson University, and Pro Musica of San Miguel in Mexico. Previous seasons’ engagements include appearances at Mostly Mozart’s 50th Anniversary season, the Copenhagen Summer Festival, the Chautauqua Institution, and a critically acclaimed recital at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in D.C.
Recent engagements in NYC include the Lysander Trio’s Weill Recital Hall debut at Carnegie Hall for which the New York Times lauded the ensemble’s “… rich sound and nuanced musicianship… resulting in a finely hued collaboration among the three musicians.”
The Lysander Piano Trio was formed at the Julliard School in 2009, and selected that year to represent Juilliard in a special concert in Mexico City on the occasion of Juilliard President Joseph Polisi’s visit to Mexico.
