Season Guest: The Ad Libitum Trio
May 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The BMC Season Guest Concert Series welcomes Trio Ad Libitum Saturday, May 21.
Trio Ad Libitum is a newly-formed string trio with shared roots at the Marlboro Music Festival. Members of the trio — violinist Elizabeth Fayette, violist Jordan Bak and cellist Timotheos Gavriilidis-Petrin — are each accomplished musicians who have made chamber music a central aspect of their careers.
They have appeared as soloists and chamber musicians in some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw, Jordan Hall, and Alice Tully Hall, and collaborated with leading musicians such as pianists Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, and members of the Cleveland, Guarneri, Juilliard, and Orion quartets and Beaux Arts Trio.
Trio Ad Libitum takes its name from the Latin phrase ad libitum, meaning “at one’s pleasure.” In a musical setting this term gives performers certain freedoms, but also requires that such individuality is within the context of the composer’s intentions. This term, then, is a reflection of the ensemble’s ethos: three distinct points of view in service to the greater whole.
The 7:30 p.m. concert at the BMC will include Franz Schubert’s String Trio in B-flat Major, D 471; Bohuslav Martinu’s Trio à cordes n°2 H238; Jean Françaix’s String Trio; and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Divertimento in E-flat major, KV 563.
