Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) presents the Grammy®-nominated Eroica Trio on Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 7:30pm.

The most sought-after trio in the world, Eroica Trio thrills audiences with flawless technical virtuosity, irresistible enthusiasm and sensual elegance. Whether playing the great standards of piano trio repertoire or daring contemporary works, the three artists who make up this celebrated ensemble electrify the concert stage with their passionate performances.

The New York Times writes, “They play chamber music for the concert hall. There is an edge of the seat intensity to every note they produce”. The Trio won the prestigious Naumburg Award, resulting in a highly successful Lincoln Center debut, and has since toured the United States, Europe and Asia.

While maintaining a demanding concert schedule, Eroica Trio has released eight critically-lauded recordings for Angel/EMI Classics Records, and garnered multiple GRAMMY® nominations.

Eroica Trio is committed to music education, giving concerts, master classes and special children's shows at schools and colleges throughout the country. During their engagement in Edmonds, the artists will visit Meadowdale High School, leading chamber orchestra students in a master class and performing for the school. The trio feels so strongly about the benefits of music that they have performed at homeless shelters, senior centers and prisons to bring the music to people who might not normally have the chance to hear live performances. Each summer, the Trio performs at music festivals throughout the world, including the Hollywood Bowl, Aspen, Mostly Mozart, Ravinia, and Spoleto, Italy.

The Eroica Trio has appeared on numerous television programs, including ABC's The View, CNN's Showbiz Today, CBS and ABC News, CBS This Morning: Saturday, A&E's Breakfast with the Arts, The Isaac Mizrahi Show, Pure Oxygen, Bloomberg TV and Fox's The Crier Report. In addition, the artists will be featured in the international broadcast of The Artists' Way at Work, an in-depth exploration of artistic creativity. Eroica!, a documentary about the Trio and its commissioning of a new triple concerto by Kevin Kaska, premiered on the PBS series Independent Lens and has had multiple airings worldwide.
