The Deco Piano Trio takes its name after the Art Deco movement which combined modernism, cubism, and abstraction with elegance and a belief in social progress. Breathtaking Deco architecture can be found across the world, from Paris’s Folies-Bergere to Tokyo’s Diet Building to the crown of New York City’s Chrysler Building. Art Deco was perhaps the first style of art to be truly internationally unified; members of the trio are from Taiwan, Sweden, and the United States.
The current season’s programming includes trios by Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Piazzolla, and the Triple Concertos by Beethoven and Martinu.
This international ensemble is comprised of pianist Chi-Chen Wu (Taiwan), violinist Gregory Maytan (Sweden), and cellist Theodore Buchholz (United States).
