Hailed as “the most exciting piano trio in America” by The New Yorker magazine (April 2009), Trio Solisti celebrated their 11th Anniversary in the 2012-2013 season. The trio is comprised of three brilliant instrumentalists—violinist Maria Bachmann, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach and pianist Adam Neiman. One of America's most notable critics, Terry Teachout of The Wall St. Journal proclaimed, “To my mind, Trio Solisti has now succeeded the Beaux Arts Trio as the outstanding chamber-music ensemble of its kind.” Trio Solisti’s soulful and passionate performances are marked by soloistic virtuosity, electric energy, seamless ensemble playing, and thrilling abandon. Performing a broad spectrum of styles, their versatility extends to new music, most notably to the work of Paul Moravec who composed his 2004 Pulitzer Prize-winning work, Tempest Fantasy, for Trio Solisti. Their performances across the country include great masterworks of Beethoven, Chausson, Dvorak, Ravel and Mussorgsky as well as several premieres. Chamber Music Monterrey Bay in California has commissioned 2012 Pulitzer Prize winning composer Kevin Puts for a work inspired by visual artist Bill Viola to be premiered by Trio Solisti in fall 2012 with clarinetist Jon Manasse.
