In this recording, the Neave Trio celebrates Piazzolla’s rich legacy through arrangements, by one of Piazzolla’s long time colleagues and by a younger protégé. “All three of us wear many musical hats, emulating other sounds and instruments. Sometimes we provide percussion.” Anna Williams states that, “at times we were inspired by the sounds of bandoneón, accordion, guitar, viola, and double bass.” Within the supposed confines of a traditional piano trio, this performance evokes a larger, more diverse family of instruments. Since forming in 2010, Neave Trio – violinist Anna Williams, cellist Mikhail Veselov, and pianist Eri Nakamura – has earned enormous praise for its engaging, cutting­edge performances. WQXR explains, "'Neave' is actually a Gaelic name meaning 'bright' and 'radiant', both of which certainly apply to this trio's music making." The Boston Musical Intelligencer included Neave in its “Best of 2014” and “Best of 2016” roundups, writing, “it is inconceivable that they will not soon be among the busiest chamber ensembles going,” and “their unanimity, communication, variety of touch, and expressive sensibility rate first tier.”
