USDs Rawlins Piano Trio opens season with three concerts
At 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 30, the internationally-recognized ensemble will be at Colton Recital Hall in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts at USD. Other area concert dates include Sunday, Sept. 28 at 4 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Sioux Falls at 300 S. Minnesota Ave and on Oct. 5 at 3 p.m., the Trio will be featured on the Sioux City Chamber Music Series at the First Presbyterian Church, 608 Nebraska St. in Sioux City.
Entitled “A Matter of Place,”their fall program begins with the early romantic “Trio in A minor” by Russian Alexander Alyabiev. It offers gracious, lyrical melodies and pianistic virtuosity. The program concludes with the colorful, flowing harmonies and clear textures of Frenchman Gabriel Fauré’s only piano trio.
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 and 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 Eunho Kim, violin, Marie-Elaine Gagnon, cello and Susan Keith Gray, piano.
