Bringing together the gifts of three internationally recognized artists, Trio Valtorna embarks upon its first concert season in 2011–12. After performing together at the “Music from Angel Fire” Chamber Music Festival, renowned violinist Ida Kavafian and French horn player extraordinaire David Jolley continue in collaboration, adding young pianist Gilles Vonsattel.
Fred Kirshnit, writing in the New York Sun, called Kavafian’s artistry “meaningful and affecting,” while the New Yorker has praised Jolley’s “richly melancholy horn solos” and David Weininger of the Boston Globe observed the “clarity and light touch” of Vonsattel. Trio Valtorna promises to offer chamber music par excellence to audiences across the United States.
