THE EAKEN PIANO TRIO
John Eaken, violin
Gloria Whitney, Piano
Andrew Rammon, Cello
The Eaken Trio is proud to introduce this new CD with recordings of the 1915 trio by Maurice Ravel and the op. 76 Trio in b minor by Joaquin Turina. The Eaken Trio has
been performing these two works since their start in the late 1980's and they have become two of the most popular works in their repertoire.
The Trio has toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Canada and this will be their 10th CD. The Trio specializes in audience building residencies
and benefit concerts to raise awareness of the homeless problem in the United States, raising thousands of dollars to support such organizations as Habitat for Humanity,
Project S.H.A.R.E., Safe Harbor and the Animal Alliance.
The Trio is heard regularly on NPR and PRI which includes two hour long programs titled "Home for the Holidays" that are aired over 150 national public radio stations
each holiday season. The trio has performed at Carnegie Hall three times and has toured in Europe during two of their last four seasons. Their first holiday CD "Home for
the Holidays" was nominated for a Grammy.
