In rock and roll terms, a “power trio” is the classic stripped-down combination of guitar, drums, and bass, pioneered by such seminal bands as Cream, Rush, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. As the definition goes, “power trios in hard rock and heavy metal music generally emphasize instrumental performance and overall sonic impact over vocals and lyrics.”
The same can be said for our #Heifetz2018 trio of violinist SooBeen Lee, cellist Nicholas Mariscal, and pianist Jingxuan Zhang, all members of the elite Ashkenasi / Kirshbaum Chamber Music Seminar. Check out their encore performance of Astor Piazzolla’s infectious La Muerte Del Angel (“Death of an Angel,”) from a Heifetz Sunday Matinee performance last summer in Charlottesville, Virginia.
This Friday, May, 10 this Heifetz “power trio” will be reunited with a special Heifetz On Tour performance in Providence, RI, at the historic Providence Athenaeum. Click here for tickets and information.
