Renowned for their brilliance and virtuosity, the Boston Trio returns to Sanibel Music Festival with Pianist Heng-Jin Park, violinist Irina Muresanu, and cellist Jonah Ellsworth. Boston Trio is acclaimed for their superb sense of ensemble and balance, yet each musician is distinguished in their own right on the international stage.

Pianist Heng-Jin Park, founding member of the Boston Trio, has been heralded as a “pianist of unusual artistry and musical imagination,” by the Washington Post and “a centered musician… who plays boldly with a full spectrum of colors,” by the Boston Globe. Ms. Park made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at the age of fifteen and is now renowned globally for her versatility as a soloist, chamber musician, pedagogue, and music director. Ms. Park is the new artistic director of Halcyon Music Festival. 

Violinist Irina Muresanu is described as “not just a virtuoso, but an artist” by the Boston Globe and praised for “musical luster, melting lyricism, and colorful conception” by the Los Angeles Times. Ms. Muresanu is the winner of numerous top prizes and awards including the Montreal International, Queen Elisabeth International, UNISA International String, Washington International, the Schadt String Competition, the prestigious University of Maryland Creative and Performing Arts Award, a Pro Musicis International Award, the Presser Music Award, and the Arthur Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association. 

Cellist Johan Ellsworth has been hailed as one of the greatest of his generation and cited as “a player to watch,” by the Boston Globe and “fearless…with a complete range of expressive richness” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer. Mr. Ellsworth has won critical acclaim for his solo performances with the Boston Symphony, Akron Symphony, Boston Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, and New Bedford Symphony, among others.

Sanibel Music Festival Program Notes from Dr. Richard Rodda for the March 12  Boston Trio Concert

Acclaimed for their superb sense of ensemble and balance, the musicians of the Boston Trio are committed to creating exceptional and daring performances of the standard and contemporary repertoire. Violinist Irina Muresanu, cellist Jonah Ellsworth and pianist Heng-Jin Park each have a distinguished career as soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician with major orchestras and premier music festivals and concert series throughout the United States and Europe.

Ms. Park, the founder of the Boston Trio and founder and Artistic Director of the Halcyon Music Festival, made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at age 15. Ms. Muresanu, who has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, is the recipient of top prizes at the Montreal International Competition and Washington International Competition. Mr. Ellsworth has performed as a soloist with the Boston Symphony, Akron Symphony, Boston Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, and Johnstown Symphony, as well as appearances at the Verbier and Marlboro music festivals.

During the 2021-2022 season, the Boston Trio performed at the Newport Classical Music Festival, Sanibel Music Festival, Halcyon Music Festival, Community Concerts at Second (Baltimore), Feldman Chamber Music Society (Norfolk, VA), Charleston Chamber Music Society (Charleston, WV) and Park International Center for Music (Kansas City), among others.

The Boston Trio has released several acclaimed recordings. Their latest one, titled Elegy and Blue, was released on the Centaur label. Actively involved in the education of the next generation of musicians, the Boston Trio has held mini-residencies at Dickinson College (PA) and Luther College (IA), coached chamber music at the Tanglewood Institute of Music, Harvard University and MIT, and served as Ensemble-in-Residence at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and New England Conservatory. The Trio is also committed to bringing chamber music to a broader community through outreach activities at public schools and assisted living centers.

The Boston Trio’s individual members serve on the faculties of the New England Conservatory, University of Maryland, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and are in demand as master class teachers throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe.
