Trio Cavatina Bio
Known for her deep musical and emotional commitment to a wide range of repertoire, Lithuanian pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute performs regularly throughout the US and Europe. Her ability to communicate the essential substance of a work has led critics to describe her as possessing ‘razor-sharp intelligence and wit' (The Washington Post) and as "an artist of commanding technique, refined temperament and persuasive insight" (The New York Times). In 2006, she was honored with a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.
TLabor Records released Ieva's Alban Berg Tribute to critical acclaim in 2010. The New York Times described her as "an authoritative and compelling guide throughout this fascinating disc." Ieva has recently given solo recitals in New York City, Chicago, Washington, DC, Vilnius, and in Toulouse, France. Over the last seasons, Ieva also made her Chicago Symphony debut and her orchestral debut in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Ieva's piano trio—Trio Cavatina—won the 2009 Naumburg International Chamber Music Competition and made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2010.
A much sought after chamber musician and collaborator, Ieva's chamber music endeavors have brought her to major stages around the world such as: Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium, London's Wigmore Hall, and Washington DC's Kennedy Center. She regularly appears at international music festivals including: Marlboro, Ravinia, Bard, Caramoor, Chesapeake Chamber Music, Prussia Cove in England, and the Katrina Festival in Finland.
Earning degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music and from Mannes College of Music, her principal teachers have been Seymour Lipkin and Richard Goode.
