Neave Trio has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting-edge performances. WQXR explains, "'Neave' is actually a Gaelic name meaning 'bright' and 'radiant', both of which certainly apply to this trio's music making." The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave in its "Best of 2014" and “Best of 2016” roundups, claiming, “their unanimity, communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility rate first tier.”
Neave has performed and held residencies at many esteemed concert series and at festivals worldwide and has appeared frequently as soloists for Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras across the country. In the fall of 2017, the Trio joined the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College as an Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence.
Neave Trio strives to champion new works by living composers and reach wider audiences through innovative concert presentations, regularly collaborating with artists of all mediums. These collaborations include performances with the Blythe Barton Dance Company; projection artist Ryan Brady; the interactive concert series “STEIN2.0,” with composer Amanuel Zarzowski; Klee Musings by acclaimed American composer Augusta Read Thomas, which was premiered by Neave; the upcoming premiere of Eric Nathan’s Missing Words V, sponsored by Coretet; and an upcoming short film based on the tango music of Astor Piazzolla.
Neave released their latest album, French Moments, on Chandos Records in June 2018, and in the fall of 2018, they will release an all-Piazzolla album on Azica Records. Their debut album, American Moments, was released to critical acclaim on Chandos Records in 2016.
Highlights for the 2018-19 season include a residency at the University of Virginia, and concerts at Chamber Music Corvallis, Valley Classical Concerts, Fort Bragg Center for the Arts Music Series, Northeastern Illinois University’s Jewel Box Series, Rochester Institute of Technology’s Performing Artists Concert Series, Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series, Friends of Music of Stamford, and Leaf Peeper Concert Series, among many others.
