Red Hedgehog TrioRed Hedgehog Trio
The Boston-based Red Hedgehog Trio (Marina Krickler, horn; Marji Gere, violin; Dan Sedgwick, piano) is dedicated to exploring and expanding the repertoire for horn, violin & piano. In a nod to Johannes Brahms’ seminal trio for this instrumentation, the group borrows its name from Brahms’ favorite Viennese coffee house, Zum Roten Igel – The Red Hedgehog.
RHT is available for recitals, educational performances, and recording projects in the Greater New England area. Past venues have included the Music in Bass Hall Concert Series (Peterborough, NH), Third Life Studio (Somerville, MA), the Whitney Center for the Arts (Pittsfield, MA), Winchester Community Music School (Winchester, MA), and The Boston Conservatory. Believing strongly in the value of community music-making, RHT has received grants from the Somerville Arts Council, and Pittsfield Cultural Council, and have partnered with Equilibrium Concert Series. In the same vein, they have given educational performances at Berkshire, Holyoke, and Middlesex Community Colleges. RHT has enjoyed summer residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute (Boscawen, NH), and Hill and Hollow Music (Saranac, NY), which have included multiple outreach performances.
Committed to expanding horizons for their instrumentation, in 2015 RHT launched a commissioning project, resulting in the performance and recording of 10 X 10: Ten Miniature Trios by Ten Composers. RHT concerts have included world premieres of several other new works, including: Burlesque by Raphael Atlas, RIDE (for a Lady Wheeler) for Voice, Violin, & Piano (text by Marji Gere & Tamara Plummer; music by Dan Sedgwick), Preludes by Dan Sedgwick, and Marina Krickler’s transcription of Gabriel Fauré’s Piano Trio, Op. 120.
