USD Rawlins Piano Trio to Play Fall Concert
The program begins with the famous “Ghost” Trio of Beethoven, Op. 70, No. 1, named for its eerie middle movement. For its second work, the trio honors the contributions of women composers. Germaine Tailleferre was the only female member of the famous Parisian group of innovative composers, “Les Six,” during the 1920s. The program closes with five selections from the clever “20 Jazzicals” by Ilan Rechtman.
Since its founding in 1987, the Rawlins Piano Trio has distinguished itself as a dynamic group of performers, teachers and scholars. The ensemble performs regularly throughout the United States and abroad, including concert and teaching tours throughout Taiwan, Panama and South Korea. In July 2013, their fifth CD, “Attracting Opposites: New Music for Piano Trio” was released on the Azica label. It features five works commissioned by the Trio and created since 2008. The Trio is named for benefactors Marjorie Rawlins and the late Robert Rawlins. The artists are faculty members in the USD Department of Music and include Ioana Galu, violin; Sonja Kraus, cello; and Susan Keith Gray, piano.
