FINISTERRA PIANO TRIO

Finis, “the end”. Terra: “the earth”. With each member from different ends of the earth, the Seattle-based Finisterra Trio has been together since 2004. They have been winners in the Zinetti International Chamber Music and Greenlake National Competitions, where they also won the Audience Prize. Known for keen interpretive work, Finisterra breathes old-world vitality into modern works, the standard repertoire, and lesser known works that only need imagination. Finisterra Trio is Ensemble-in-Residence at The Seasons Concert Hall in Yakima, Washington. In 2008 the Trio also became Artists-in-Residence at the Phoenix Concert Series in New York City. Individually, the three players come from an impressive musical background. Members of the trio have won numerous competitions both as soloists and in chamber ensembles, have been heard in such prestigious halls as New York’s Lincoln Center, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall, Seattle’s Benaroya Hall and have been heard on many major studio album projects, Hollywood films, video games, and commercials.
