Neave Trio: Rising
The Neave Trio, Faculty Ensemble‑in‑Residence at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, presents Rising, a livestreamed, multimedia performance.
The trio will perform live in Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall and the stream will be available to watch online with advance registration. This program, comprising timeless and timely repertoire by Shostakovich, Clara Schumann, and Jennifer Higdon paired with visual and audio prompts, seeks to answer the question, “What does it mean to rise?” in all its complexity.
The program begins with a wide variety of definitions of what it means “to rise,” and then explores, through both the repertoire and multimedia sources, each definition one by one and asks the audience to consider how the specific definition might impact the way the musical performance is experienced.
