Hamilton Recital Hall
Celebrating György Ligeti's centennial, TAKT Trio presents the composer's Trio for Violin, Horn, and Piano, alongside Brahm's own Horn Trio as well as a new work by composer Hilda Paredes, reconsidering this medium for the 21st century. Co-presented with Friends of Chamber Music and DU's Lamont School of Music.
TAKT Trio is:
- Austin Wulliman – violin
- David Byrd-Marrow – horn
- Conor Hanick – piano
Praised as a “gifted, adventuresome violinist” by the Chicago Tribune, Austin Wulliman is widely known for his role with the JACK Quartet, called "America's most important string quartet" by The New York Times. With JACK, he has performed worldwide at such venues at the Berlin Philharmonie, Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall and collaborated with such luminaries as Barbara Hannigan, Igor Levit, John Luther Adams, Patricia Kopatchinskaya, Philip Glass and a host of composers and performers. Austin serves on the faculty of the Mannes School of Music, where JACK is Quartet in Residence.
Hailed as “stunning and assured” by The New York Times, Atlanta native David Byrd-Marrow is the solo hornist of the International Contemporary Ensemble, as well as a member of The Knights. Working with a uniquely wide range of performers, he has premiered works by Matthias Pintscher, Arthur Kampela, George Lewis, Tyshawn Sorey, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Du Yun, Marcos Balter, Anna Webber, Jörg Widmann, Miguel Zenón, and Chick Corea. He is the Assistant Professor of Horn at the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver.
Pianist Conor Hanick is regarded as one of his generation’s most inquisitive interpreters of music new and old whose “technical refinement, color, crispness and wondrous variety of articulation benefit works by any master” (The New York Times). Hanick has recently been presented by The Gilmore Festival, the NewYork Philharmonic, Caramoor, Cal Performances, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, and the Park Avenue Armory, and performed with the Seattle Symphony, Alabama Symphony, Orchestra Iowa, and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. He is the director of Solo Piano at the Music Academy of the West and serves on the faculty of the Peabody Institute and The Juilliard School.
