Pop, jazz, movie themes, and classical selections will be performed by the virtuosic piano trio Take3 on Sunday, February 23 at 7 p.m. at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Lindsay Deutsch, violin; Ruti Celli, cello; and Irene Kim, piano, are Take3. The cellist and pianist are different from the two musicians previously on tour. With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the genre-defying trio brings the refinement of a rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Known for their infectious and down to earth onstage personalities, the ensemble performs their arrangements of pop hits, Americana, and classical favorites.
The trio has played at performing arts centers, theaters, recital halls, as well as with orchestras in most of the 50 states. No strangers to the stage as individuals, they have made an impact on the music scene as soloists, touring the world with Yanni, recording tracks for film and television, and as soloists in front of symphony orchestras.
Deutsch frequently appears as guest soloist with American and Canadian symphonies. Recent orchestral engagements include the Colorado, Fort Worth, Missoula, New West, Las Cruces, Pensacola, Irving, Cape, Knoxville, South Carolina, and West Virginia Symphonies as well as the Los Angeles, McGill, Portland, and Boulder Chamber Orchestras. Deutsch’s performance of Astor Piazzolla’s “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra was selected for NPR’s “SymphonyCast” program.
Celli completed her degree in cello performance at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, after which she joined the prestigious New World Symphony Orchestra in Miami in 2000. She has participated in numerous summer music programs, such as the Tanglewood Music Festival in Massachusetts, Verbier Music Academy Festival in Switzerland, Shleswig Holstein Music Festival in Germany), Banff Center Chamber Music Program in Canada, and the New Direction Cello Festival in New York.
Kim’s performances have been heard across North America and Europe in recitals, chamber ensembles, and as a soloist with top orchestras around the globe. Having garnered the Franz Liszt First Prize in the Liszt-Garrison International Young Artist competition and top prizes in the Carmel Music Society, Korean Concert Society, Yale Gordon Concerto, and Russell C. Wonderlic competitions amongst others, she gave subsequent performances at venues such as the Kennedy Center, Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Centro Cultural del Antiguo Instituto, Luckman Theatre, and the Library of Congress.
