Founded by three Italian musicians with a wealth of performing experience, both individually and in ensembles, the trio Voces Intimae (Luigi De Filippi, violin; Sandro Meo, cello; Riccardo Cecchetti, fortepiano) gave its first concert in 1998. Since that time, the trio has performed in many cities in Italy and in London, Hamburg, Utrecht, Barcelona, Brussels, Antwerp and New York, among others. Their concerts have been broadcast on BBC-Radio 3 and RAI-Radio 3.

The group’s first recording of the complete Hummel piano trios on two compact discs, performed on period instruments, was for Warner Classics. Voces Intimae has also recorded three CDs for the Italian label Symphonia, dedicated to the trios of Schubert, Mendelssohn and an unpublished repertoire of nineteenth-century fantasies based on the music of Vincenzo Bellini.

Much of its repertoire concentrates on the work of composers inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, transcriptions based on operas of Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi and Italian and French trios composed at the turn of the twentieth century. Their current tour in the United States takes them to Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Middlebury, Vermont.

The Frick Collection has the ideal setting for chamber music size entertainment, from solo concerts with pianist collaborator accompaniment to quartets, quintets, and small orchestras. The museums have the added fascination of having an atmosphere of greatness in the aura of the surroundings. The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Gilder Lehman Hall of the Morgan Library and Museum also have excellent acoustics and no sight line obstructions. Libraries, like the Main Library at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue and the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts, and Juilliard, Manhattan School of Music, Columbia University's Miller Theater, the Mannes School of Music, and the Tisch School of the Arts Building of New York University offer a diversity of music performed by talents in many formats. Outdoors, the Band Shells of Central Park and Lincoln Center give al fresco ambience fit for picnicking as well. And the open air Delacorte Theater in Central Park offers FREE Shakespeare in the summer months. Enjoy New York in whatever venue in all seasons!
