Excerpt from a Review By Michael Sherwin | May 14, 2015, from The Epoch Times/Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall: Rachmaninoff’s “Trio élégaique” No. 1 in G Minor, a rarity in the concert hall, performed here by a one-off trio assembled for the occasion, performed by Hannah Tarley, violin, with pianist Michael Davidman, MSM Precollege student headed for Curtis this fall, and cellist Eddie Pogossian, a Kovner Fellow at The Juilliard School. (Mark Minaly). The three were well matched. Davidman gave a powerful, massive account of the thickly textured piano part on the Steinway 9-foot concert grand piano. The string players contributed beautifully shaded playing in the quiet passages, but stepped-up to match the assertiveness of the piano in the climaxes.
