With a celebrated career spanning five decades, Pinchas Zukerman reigns as one of today’s most sought-after and versatile musicians as a violin and viola soloist, conductor, and chamber musician. Zukerman has been an inspiration to young musicians throughout his adult life in a continuing effort to motivate future generations of musicians through education and outreach.
The Zukerman Trio debuted in 2011 as an alternative to the quintet works with the Zukerman ChamberPlayers. In addition to piano trios by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Dvorak and Shostakovich, programs often include duo performances with various couplings including the Kodaly Duo. Invitations from major Festivals and venues led to the official launch of the Zukerman Trio in 2013. Since then, the ensemble has traveled around the globe to appear in Japan, China, Australia, Spain, Italy, France, Hungary, South Africa, Istanbul, Russia, and throughout the United States. The Trio regularly performs at the Ravinia Festival and has appeared at major festivals including the BBC Proms, Edinburgh, Verbier, and Bravo! Vail. Pianist Shai Wosner began performing with Zukerman and Forsyth in 2020. The Amelia Island performance will include a repertoire from Brahms: Scherzo from the FAE Sonata (violin/piano), Schumann: Intermezzo from the FAE Sonata (violin/piano), Brahms: Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op. 101 Interval, and following the intermission, Schubert: Piano Trio in B-flat major, D.898.
