Neave Trio Releases Musical Remembrances on Chandos Records
Neave Trio's latest album, Musical Remembrances — the Trio’s fourth album with Chandos Records — was released on May 6, 2022. It includes Rachmaninoff’s Trio élégiaque No. 1; Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 1, Op. 8; and Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 67. The new album presents music connected by the theme of remembrance. Rachmaninoff’s early first piano trio was inspired by Tchaikovsky’s trio in A minor, and shows illuminating(is glimpses of the mature composer to come. The elegiac mood of Rachmaninoff’s work is matched by that of Brahms’s first trio – again an early composition – which was inspired by the composer’s (unrequited) feelings for Clara Schumann. Ravel’s only piano trio was composed in 1914, as France was being drawn into the horrors of the first world war. Ravel draws extensively on the rhythms and forms of his native Basque musical traditions, while the title of the second movement, "Pantoum," refers to a form of traditional Malaysian poetry which typically deals with two separate themes in alternation, a feature to which Ravel responds with a series of contrasting themes and textures.

D-Cell: Neave Trio Residency at PS21 with David Michalek and BodySonnet
D-CELL: an Exhibition & Durational Performance in two parts is conceived and directed by multi-disciplinary visual artist David Michalek.
D-CELL presents an encounter with deceleration in both dance and visual art. The project, a hybrid between an exhibition and a performance, is comprised of two distinct but related works:
SlowDancingLive1 (2020 premiere)
Utilizing PS21’s architecture, grounds, and trails as media canvas, dancers from BodySonnet, Peridance, Gallim and The Martha Graham Dance Company will perform decelerated sequences on sand-covered raised platforms stationed throughout the landscape. Live music by the Neave Trio will accent the movement with improvisations and works inspired by Morton Feldman, whose compositions “seldom rise above a whisper . . . glacially slow and snowily soft” (Alex Ross, the New Yorker).
Portraits in Dramatic Time (2010)
The video installation, commissioned by Lincoln Center Festival and the Lincoln Center Public Art Fund, utilizes ultra-high-speed cameras to record scenes with well-known theater and film performers which, when played back, unfold at a glacial pace, thereby creating new layers of scenic content and meaning. Portraits in Dramatic Time features leading actors including Lili Taylor, William H. Macy, Patti LuPone, Holly Hunter, Alan Rickman, Ludivigne Sagnier, and Liev Schreiber. It will screen in the evenings in the Pavilion theater on Sept. 6, 7, 11, 12 with musical accent by the Neave Trio. More information below:
