Amadeus Trio

Marian Hahn, piano
Timothy Baker, violin
Jeffrey Solow, cello

The Amadeus Trio is described by the Los Angeles Times as "A world-class ensemble." "Indeed, on this showing, I would have to rank this New York-based group among the finest of its kind and the concert one of the outstanding chamber programs of this or any season!" declared William F. Goodfellow, the critic for Salt Lake City's Desert News. Critical reviews such as these have become commonplace for The Amadeus Trio, one of the most dynamic chamber music groups to emerge in recent years. Celebrating seven seasons of rave review performances to overwhelmingly enthusiastic audiences, the Trio is repeatedly recognized by all who hear them for their joy of performance as well as for their virtuoso musicianship. The three musicians, pianist Marian Hahn, violinist Timothy Baker, and cellist Jeffrey Solow also enjoy award-winning solo careers.

The Amadeus Trio has concertized in such major cultural centers as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Miami and Washington, D.C. In addition, the Trio is a regular participant in summer chamber festivals throughout the United States.

During the spring of 1992, The Amadeus Trio made its Lincoln Center debut in Alice Tully Hall, a performance that elicited spontaneous applause and shouts from its audience between movements, treatment very rarely accorded any debut in New York. As a result of that acclaimed performance, The Amadeus Trio was immediately invited to perform at some of this country's major musical venues including, among others, San Francisco's Herbst Theatre, Los Angeles'/Pasadena's Ambassador Auditorium and New York's Carnegie Hall. Earlier this season, The Amadeus Trio made its Kennedy Center debut in a concert which was hailed as "chamber music at its best!" by Joseph McClellan of The Washington Post.

In demand by radio stations in addition to their concert performances, The Amadeus Trio has been heard numerous times over National Public Radio's Performance Today program hosted by Martin Goldsmith and has performed live on major classical music stations WQXR in New York, WGMS in Washington, D.C. and WGBH in Boston.

Among other notable endeavor scheduled for next season are plans by The Amadeus Trio to record one CD comprised of rarely heard works crafted by Spanish composers and a second project devoted to recording the complete Dvorak piano trios. The Amadeus Trio has a 40-concert season scheduled for 1996-97.
