Trio Accento gives vivid performances of exciting, new chamber works.

Trio Accento (Limor Toren-Immerman (violin); Garik Terzian (cello); Nora Chiang Wrobel (piano) is known for its advocacy of contemporary compositions. This recording features five varied works, one of which was commissioned by the ensemble. All three members of Trio Accento have distinguished performing and teaching careers and as a trio have performed to critical acclaim. Jeff Beal's Almost Morning is a dance work composed for choreographer Claudia Schreier. Russell Steinberg's Paleface was inspired by the acclaimed paintings of "psychological pop" artist Jerry Kearns, while Gernot Wolfgang's Jazz and Cocktails was inspired by the goings-on of an imaginary cocktail party. Juhi Bansal's Wings evokes a day in the montains and the image of a solitary bird flying through a rain-filled sky. Kenneth Froehlich's Polarized is a study of contrasts, conceived as a response to our ever-increasing polzarized society.

"A welcome and vibrant disc e"The words "contemporary piano trio" don't immediately bring showmanship and hip entertainment to mind, but in that regard Russell Steinberg's Paleface is bound to be an audience hit.…All five works on this highly engaging album are to some degree pictorial, although the result might not be as graphic as Paleface…These are impressive works performed with great technical skill and panache. I haven't heard an album of contemporary chamber music before that impressed me this much by its variety, imagination, and exciting playing. Strongly recommended." (Fanfare)
