On Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. the Gualala Arts Chamber Music Series presents the Manhattan Piano Trio. Tickets are $25 advance; $5 more day of concert. Children and young people ages 7 through 17 are admitted free.
Hailed by critics as "a grand departure from the usual" (News Herald), the Manhattan Piano Trio has quickly become one of the most creative, exciting, and dynamic young ensembles in the United States.
With more than 300 concerts in its first five seasons alone, MPT is one of the most active groups on the classical music scene, welcomed by enthusiastic audiences in over 30 states, across three continents, and in venues such as Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall, and the Ravinia Festival.
The Washington Post described the Trio as "impressive" and "outstanding," while the Sarasota Herald Tribune said "one seldom is privileged to enjoy music of such a wide range of styles performed with self-effacing skill and relaxed assurance."
The Manhattan Piano Trio has been recognized for its electrifying performances in international competitions. Since its inception in 2004, the Trio has captured grand prizes at the Plowman Competition and at the Yellow Springs Competition, was runner-up at the Chesapeake Competition, and received the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Listeners' Choice Award in Melbourne.
