Pre-Concert Talks before Both Classic Series Performances
The Eroica Trio makes their Tucson Symphony Orchestra debut performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto at the Opening Weekend concerts of the 2012-13 Season. Music Director and Conductor George Hanson, now celebrating his seventeenth season with the TSO, will be on the podium for the program, which opens with the Overture to Richard Wagner’s Flying Dutchman and concludes with Ein Heldenleben, A Hero’s Life, the seventh in a line of tone poems for which Richard Strauss is well known. Performances are Friday, October 5 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 7 at 2:00 pm at the Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave., Tucson. While in Tucson for the opening of the TSO season, The Eroica Trio will also perform a special recital of Gershwin, Beethoven and Dvořák on Tuesday, October 2 at 8:00 pm at Catalina Foothills High School.
Grammy® nominees, The Eroica Trio performs the Beethoven Triple Concerto more frequently than any other trio in the world. A recording of the Triple they made with the Prague Chamber Orchestra made the Billboard Top 20. The New York Times has hailed their “edge of the seat intensity to every note they produce” while the Los Angeles Times claims, “The sizzle of the Eroica Trio seduces listeners.”
The Eroica Trio is in the vanguard of a new generation of artists who are changing the face of classical music. The first all-female chamber ensemble to reach the top echelon of its field, the Eroica Trio broke an age-old gender barrier. As the Chicago Sun Times remarked, “Our image of the piano trio is largely formed by groups like the celebrated [original] Beaux Arts, three middle-aged gentlemen who apply their wisdom and artistry to their chosen repertory. That image is about to change.”
The Trio took its name from Beethoven's passionate Third Symphony. Italian for "heroic," eroica is a word that aptly reflects the ensemble's approach to music. The Trio has established a unique identity by creating innovative programs that span 300 years of music. A typical Eroica Trio concert might include the Baroque symmetries of Vivaldi, the passion of Brahms, and Mark O’Connor’s Bluegrass and rock-a-billy ode to Johnny Cash, “Poets and Prophets” which was written for them.
“Drama, heroism, three wonderful soloists, and the redemption of a man through the love of a woman . . . just another weekend at the Symphony,” says Music Director and Conductor George Hanson. “Wagner and Strauss were on the same page in the works we are presenting: Each portrays the story of a man who strives and falls, but rises again, through the help of the woman in his life. We are fortunate to have the women in The Eroica Trio to aid us in our efforts to present you with a truly inspiring concert:”
