The Morpheus Trio was formed in the 1990s when all three musicians were students at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. Inspired by Schubert’s beautiful “Auf dem Strom,” the trio searched for music with instrumentation for voice, horn, and piano. While only a modest amount of repertoire was in the canon, the group uncovered hidden gems and also partnered with living composers commissioning a number of works. Thus was born the Morpheus Trio. Today’s concert celebrates both classics and new discoveries for their unique instrumentation.
