Ensemble Aubade (Peter H. Bloom, flute; Francis Grimes, viola; and Mary Jane Rupert, harp and piano) performs vivid chamber music by European and American composers. The esteemed trio, based in Boston, concertizes throughout the United States, winning praise for stellar musicianship, vibrant performances, and engaging residencies.
“Ensemble Aubade played with intensity, imagination, skill and finesse. We fully anticipated the shimmering grace of Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp, and Peter, Frank, and Mary Jane introduced the work of Ladislav de Rohozinski and our Adirondack neighbor, Bernadette Speach. " - Dr. David Henderson, St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY
Ensemble Aubade's magnificent concert was a memorable fall event for our audience. The program featured rich interpretations and beautiful contrasts played sensitively and virtuosically. The concert opened with a dazzling performance of Ravel’s Sonatine en Trio, and then offered a witty and charming performance of a suite by Rohozinski. New to all of us was the spare yet elegant Trio des Trois by New York composer Bernadette Speach, who joined us in the audience for Aubade’s debut performance of her piece. Dr. Speach was clearly thrilled, as was the audience. The high point of the evening was Debussy’s incomparable Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp, rendered brilliantly by Ensemble Aubade – a fitting celebration of the 100th anniversary of this chamber music masterpiece." - Melissa Richmond, Director, West Claremont Center for Music and the Arts, Claremont, New Hampshire
