Reveron Trio photo.pngThe Reverón Piano Trio is named after Venezuelan artist Armando Reverón (1889-1954), one of the pioneers of modernist painting in the Americas. The Trio pays tribute to Reverón with a program featuring music by Manuel Ponce, Eduardo Alonso Crespo, and MSU composition faculty Ricardo Lorenz. Trio artists: Ana Maria Otamendi, guest piano; Simon Gollo, guest violin; Horacio Contreras, guest cello.

Manuel Ponce was a contemporary of Reverón and a champion of the nationalist movement in Mexico. His work is beautifully represented in his composition Trio Romántico. In turn, Eduardo Alonso Crespo creates an alluring homage to the tango, Argentina's national treasure, in Trio Op. 30. The program also features the world premiere of La Hamaca (The Hammock), a work inspired by the 1933 painting by Armando Reverón and composed by Venezuelan-born Ricardo Lorenz.

Additional Performance
The ensemble will offer an open-to-the-public reading of works by MSU College of Music composition students on Saturday, November 13, 10:00 a.m. – noon, MSU Community Music School, East Lansing. 

 

This concert is part of the MSU Federal Credit Union Entrepreneurial MusicalArtist in Residence series with additional funding provided by the Sam andMary Austin Fund for New Music.
