As a part of CapRadio’s inaugural Student Musician Showcase Week, Davis High School's Amati Trio joined us in the studio for a live performance and interview with Classical Host Kevin Doherty and Insight Host Beth Ruyak.
The Amati Trio is made up of pianist Janet Liu, violinist Sue Bin Park and cellist Nina Martin, three seniors at Davis High School. The trio was formed by Liu, Park and another cellist in 2014. Martin joined the group this year.
The ensemble won first place at the 2016 Sacramento State University School of Music's Chamber Music Competition with a performance of Beethoven's Ghost Trio. They were also finalists in the San Francisco State University's 2018 Galante Chamber Music Competition.
The trio performed the prelude of Johann Sebastian Bach's Cello Suite No. 3, Claude Debussy's Reflets dans L'eau and an excerpt from Bedrich Smetana's piano trio.
