Since making a highly-acclaimed debut at the 1996 edition of the Pablo Casals Festival in Puerto Rico, Trio Casals has delighted audiences with spectacular virtuosity, engaging enthusiasm and exquisite musical elegance. Recent engagements include performances at Carnegie Hall, a week-long collaboration with the Nashville Ballet and composer Michael Kurek, appearances in the Triple Concerto by Beethoven with the Helena and Southeastern PA Symphonies, and concerts in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Delaware.
Trio Casals has performed in the Rachmaninov Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Holywell Room in Oxford, England, and at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, and has toured China and Romania.
Trio Casals has created original programs that juxtapose the great classical tradition of Beethoven and Brahms with new works written by American composers, such as Paul Schoenfield, Michael Kurek, George Rochberg, and Hilary Tann. Their album Moto Continuo features distinguished composers such as Brian Noyes, Osias Wilensky-Schorr, Diane Jones, and Nicholas Ascioti, who have written trios for the group. Recorded for PARMA Recordings, Moto Continuo was presented in concert at Carnegie Hall and other concert venues. Moto Bello, the follow up album for PARMA Recordings, was performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York in May 2018. Already planned is a new album: Moto IV, with a Carnegie Hall engagement for Spring 2019. In addition to its performing schedule, Trio Casals is committed to music education, offering regular master classes at schools and colleges. As resident artists for Music for All Seasons, its members have played in shelters for victims of domestic abuse, nursing homes, and hospitals. All three members have distinguished careers as soloists.
