Ghost Trio (piano trio)

Ghost Trio (piano trio)

The trio consists of Monique Lapins (violin), also a member of the NZ String Quartet, Ken Ichinose (cello) – associate principal with NZSO and Gabriela Glapska (piano). Named for Beethoven’s famous work for piano trio, the Ghost Trio was founded in mid-2019 as one of Gabriela’s PhD recital projects.

Having quickly realised that they immensely enjoy playing together, they decided to continue working as a trio. All three are accomplished soloists and chamber musicians with diverse backgrounds. They have toured nationwide for Chamber Music New Zealand’s Music Up Close series, a tour where their performances were described as possessing “elan and unfailing attention to musical detail” Leon Gray – Tauranga Musica.

For this concert, Ken Ichinose has become unavailable so will be replaced by Andrew Joyce, Principal Cello of the NZSO. Two violin/piano duos are bookended by two great piano trios

Robert Schumann, Piano Trio No 1, Op 63 (1847) Leonie Holmes, “Dance of the Wintersmith” (2017) Kaija Saariaho , “Calices” (2009) Maurice Ravel, Piano Trio in A minor (1914)
