About This Performance

The Merz Trio has made a sweep of recent US chamber awards, having taken top prizes at the 2021 Naumburg, 2019 Concert Artists Guild, and 2019 Fischoff Competitions. For its PCMS debut, the Trio joins forces with Lucy Fitz Gibbon—a soprano noted for her “dazzling, virtuoso singing” (Boston Globe)—for a program that includes songs by James Primosch, a world premiere by Philip Maneval, and beloved instrumental works by Brahms and Ravel.
