Formed in 1999, the Amelia Piano Trio participated in Isaac Stern’s Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall in 2000. Isaac Stern became a mentor to the Trio and presented the ensemble’s Carnegie Hall début at Weill Recital Hall. Joining the roster of Concert Artists Guild in 2001, the Trio went on to win the ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming and to record CDs with Cedille Records and Naxos. The Trio has performed in many major halls, including the 92nd Street Y, Carnegie Hall, Ravinia in Chicago, Seattle’s Meany Hall, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Other performances include appearances at the Caramoor Music Festival in New York, the La Jolla Chamber Music Society, NPR’s St Paul Sunday, Calgary Pro Musica, Merkin Hall, and Bargemusic. The Amelia members have quickly made their mark as performers and commissioners of new music. Notably, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Harbison wrote his first full-length piano trio for the Amelia, a recording of which was released on the Naxos label in the spring of 2007. The Trio’s most recent commissioning project is a new Triple Concerto, Orpheus and Eurydice, composed by Daron Hagen.
