Gramercy Premieres Schuller

On January 14, we premiered Gunther Schuller’s Piano Trio No. 3 at Boston’s Jordan Hall to a large and enthusiastic audience. The review in The Boston Globe begins:

A quick stab of a chord, then a dark, slowly spreading pool of dissonance: The opening motive of Gunther Schuller’s new Piano Trio No. 3, premiered on Monday in Jordan Hall by the Gramercy Trio (violinist Sharan Leventhal, cellist Jonathan Miller, and pianist Randall Hodgkinson). At the age of 87, Schuller has written a piece that feels retro and youthful at the same time, working venerable veins of modernism with often bristling energy.”
