Debut Tour of USA for Fidelio Trio

The Fidelio Trio is internationally recognised as one of the most exciting piano trios with diverse and arresting programming.  This US tour takes place from 21 February – 1 March 2011 and is supported by Culture Ireland as part of Imagine Ireland – A year of Irish Arts in America in 2011. The tour features world and US premieres of works by Irish composers Gerald Barry, Ed Bennett, Linda Buckley, Raymond Deane, Donnacha Dennehy, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin and Ian Wilson, as well as British composer Michael Nyman and American composers Evan Ziporyn, Charles Wuorinen, Laura Kaminsky, Erik Lund and Arlene Sierra.

Ireland’s Fidelio Trio, Darragh Morgan – Violin, Robin Michael – Cello, Mary Dullea – Piano have performed at London’s Wigmore Hall, Casa da Musica, Porto, Shanghai’s Oriental Arts Centre and on tour throughout Europe, Hong Kong and South Africa.  They broadcast regularly for BBC Radio 3 and have released numerous CDs on NMC, Delphian Records, Naxos and MN Records.

Particularly lauded for their performances of new music, they have worked with many diverse composers, in particular Michael Nyman, Toshio Hosokawa, Gerald Barry and Johannes Maria Staud.

The Fidelio Trio will perform twice at Symphony Space, New York City, as part of their Music of Now Marathon and Salon Series, MIT Boston, SUNY New Paltz and University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
