Two of this up-and-coming piano trio's original members—acclaimed pianist Navah Perlman and multi-faceted cellist Zuill Bailey, a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory and artistic director of the El Paso Pro Musica Chamber Festival—are now joined by sensational young violinist Giora Schmidt, who appeared at the 2003 Kennedy Center Honors in a musical tribute to Honoree Itzhak Perlman, his teacher and mentor. The charisma of these three artists, both in their collaborative music-making and communication with audiences, is evident in every performance. "This is an outstanding ensemble of young thoroughbreds who play to the highest standards," says the Santa Barbara News Press. Favorites at Chicago's annual Ravinia Festival, the Perlman/Schmidt/Bailey Trio lends its energetic and passionate performance style to two piano trios: Beethoven’s masterful "Archduke Trio," which represents a high point in the composer's output and is considered by many the crowning triumph of the medium, and Brahms's unabashedly romantic First Piano Trio.
