Trio Valtorna

February 3 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court

David Jolley, French horn
Ida Kavafian, violin
Gilles Vonsattel, piano

After performing together at the “Music from Angel Fire” Chamber Music Festival, renowned violinist Ida Kavafian and French horn player extraordinaire David Jolley decided to continue in collaboration, and in 2011, added the young pianist Gilles Vonsattel to form Trio Valtorna. Fred Kirshnit, writing in the New York Sun, called Kavafian’s artistry “meaningful and affecting,” while the New Yorker praised Jolley’s “richly melancholy horn solos,” and David Weininger in the Boston Globe observed the “clarity and light touch” of Gilles Vonsattel. The trio’s program includes John Harbison’s Twilight Music for Horn, Piano, and Violin, Maurice Ravel’s Violin Sonata no. 2 in G Major, and Brahms’s Horn Trio in E-flat Major, op. 40.
