Manhattan Piano Trio to give concert

Hailed by critics as a “Grand departure from the usual,” Manhattan Piano Trio is currently one of the most prominent, versatile, exciting and busiest emerging chamber music groups in the country.

It is also the Grand Prize Winner of the 2006 Plowman National Chamber Music Competition. The Trio comprises Milana Bahl (piano), Dmitry Lukin (violin) and Dmitry Kouzov (cello). The two “Dmitrys” are from St. Petersburg (Russia) and met Milana, a Moldavian born American, literally “on the front steps” of The Juilliard School during the summer of 2004.

The Manhattan Piano Trio will present their work starting at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22 in the library's Geneva Room.

Since their debut performance at Alice Tully Hall in New York City, the trio has presented more than 125 concerts in 22 states in the past two seasons.

“This group strives to evoke a range of pure human emotions in the listener through musical harmony and creative and interactive programming,” says Reggie Bahl, the NYC based classical music manager. “At a time when this world seems to have gone crazy, I hope that listeners would not only experience the love, beauty and joy Manhattan Piano Trio playing, but also feel the harmony in their own lives. This is also the inspiration behind the formation of this group.”
