Shelter Island Friends of Music opens its expanded 2024 concert season with the acclaimed Horszowski Trio on Sunday, February 18, at 3 p.m. in a free concert at the Shelter Island Presbyterian Church. The trio will play music by Franz Josef Haydn, Chen Yi and Dmitri Shostakovich.

The Horszowski Trio comprises Reiko Aizawa, piano, Ole Akahoshi, cello, and Jesse Mills, violin. The trio has become a vital force in the international chamber music world since their formation in 2011, and has appeared at major venues in the U.S., as well as Mexico, Canada, Japan and throughout Europe and Asia. The group’s recording of the complete piano trios of Robert Schumann on AVIE Records received tremendous acclaim. In 2019, the Horszowski Trio made its London debut in a sold-out concert presented by Wigmore Hall. That success led to a 21-concert-tour in Germany in 2022.

The trio takes its inspiration from the musicianship from pianist Mieczysław Horszowski (1892–1993). The ensemble’s pianist, Rieko Aizawa, was Horszowski’s last pupil at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. In addition to performances of the complete trios of Beethoven, Schumann and Brahms, the Horszowski Trio is a passionate advocate for the music of our time.

This is the first concert of the SIFM’s 47th season, which will feature at least seven concerts. There is no admission fee; donations are always appreciated. A reception with the musicians follows the concert. Shelter Island Presbyterian Church is at 32 North Ferry Road (Route 114) on Shelter Island. Visit shelterislandfriendsofmusic.org for more information and the rest of the 2024 season.
