Poulenc Trio to Perform on Campus

FREDERICK, Maryland—The Poulenc Trio will perform the annual Phyllis and Ardine Gorden Chamber Music Concert at Hood College on Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. (rescheduled from a weather cancellation in February) in Brodbeck Music Hall.

The Poulenc Trio has been called the most active touring piano-wind chamber music ensemble in the world. Since its founding in 2003, the Trio has performed in 45 U.S. states and at music festivals around the world, including the Ravello Festival in Italy, the San Miguel de Allende Festival in Mexico, and the White Nights Festival in Russia, where the group toured with and premiered two new works with violinist Hilary Hahn.

The Trio’s latest CD, “Creation,” reached No. 4 on the iTunes Classical Music playlist and garnered high praise from the American Record Guide for the group’s technique and expressive range.

The Poulenc Trio has a strong commitment to commissioning, performing and recording new works from living composers, and have greatly expanded the repertoire available for the oboe, bassoon and piano, with 22 new works written for and premiered by the group.

The Trio is committed to exploring and promoting music that reflect its members’ African, Asian, Eastern European and Jewish roots. Recent concerts have featured works by Afro-Cuban jazz great Paquito D’Rivera, Mexican-American composer Carlos Medina and Russian-American composer Nataliya Medvedovskaya, as well as composer Jakov Jakoulov’s “Yiddish Lexicon,” an exploration of Jewish culture.

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Wayne L. Wold at 301-696-3782 or woldw@hood.edu.
