The Delphi Trio – a deeply communicative ensemble renowned for its “confidence, precision and a masterful ability to capture the subtle expressions in a wide variety of music” (Peninsula Reviews) – has just released their debut recording, Live.
As the album’s name indicates, the recording was made through a series of 2014 live performances, and features Haydn’s Trio in C major, Hob. XV:27, Arensky’s Trio in D minor, Op. 32, and the Adagio sostenuto movement from Chopin’s Trio in G minor, Op. 8.
“We are delighted to share this concert experience with a wider range of listeners,” says Liana Bérubé, violinist of the Delphi Trio. “The energy of live performance adds a dimension to the emotional journey of a work that traditional, highly edited recordings can’t attain. We’re most interested in sharing the humanity of music with our listeners, and we do that best in a live concert setting.”

When the Delphi Trio was at the 2013 Great Lakes Chamber Festival (where they are Shouse Ensemble Artists), they had the great fortune to meet composer William Bolcom.
Through a series of good meals and conversations, Delphi and Bolcom decided that the rapport they shared could be put to great use in a new work: Bolcom’s first-ever full-length piano trio.
With the help of their advisory board and some generous patrons, Delphi is now set to offer the exclusive world premiere of a major new chamber work from an American Master, in 2016.
