Trio Latitude 41

May 4 | 7:30BioProgramTickets

Violinist Livia Sohn, cellist Luigi Piovano, and pianist Bernadene Blaha came together to form Latitude 41 in the summer of 2009, as a result of their previous musical collaborations and mutual passion for chamber music. Since their formation they have appeared globally, to high acclaim.

Highlights of Latitude 41 appearances include a concert presented by Carnegie Hall in their famed Zankel Hall in New York City, Music in the Morning in Vancouver, Noe Valley Chamber Music in San Francisco, Chamberfest in Ottawa, Maverick Concerts in New York, Music in Deerfield in Massachusetts, the South Windsor Cultural Arts in Connecticut, Bay Chamber Concerts in Maine, the Da Camera Society in Los Angeles, the Newport Music Festival in Rhode Island, the L’Ermitage Foundation in Los Angeles, and “Sundays Live” at the L.A. County Museum of Art.

This past season saw Latitude 41 featured in a debut appearance on the series Tertulia in New York City, concerts in Madrid (Cita con los Clásicos), Lanciano, Italy (Estate Musicale Frentano), and Rome, for the prestigious Filarmonica Romano series, as well as the Musical Club of Hartford in Connecticut.

Highlights of future appearances include return recitals for Music in Deerfield in Massachusetts, Maverick Concerts in NY (America’s oldest continuous summer chamber music festival), and The Newport Music Festival in Rhode Island, as well as first-time appearances in Venice, Italy at Palazzetto Bru Zane Center, and the prestigious Music Worcester series in Massachusetts.

Latitude 41 released its debut CD in 2011 for the label Eloquentia with the monumental Schubert Piano Trio in E flat, and Schubert Notturno. In March 2015 the trio released their second recording for Eloquentia, the piano trios of Camille Saint-Saens. Says the critic Jon Sobel of the recording: “Right from the opening figures, the trio shows off a sense of spontaneity to go with the virtuosity of pianist Bernadene Blaha, violinist Livia Sohn, and cellist Luigi Piovano. They bring all the necessary fire to the heated, emotionally charged, technically complex first movement, a brilliant yet accessible statement of independence.”
