Biography

David Jolley, French horn 
Ida Kavafian, violin
Gilles Vonsattel, piano

Bringing together the gifts of three internationally recognized artists, Trio Valtorna formed in 2011. After performing together at “Music from Angel Fire” Chamber Music Festival, renowned violinist Ida Kavafian and French horn player extraordinaire David Jolley decided to continue in collaboration, adding the young pianist Gilles Vonsattel to complete the ensemble. Fred Kirshnit, writing in the New York Sun, called Ms. Kavafian’s artistry “meaningful and affecting”, while the New Yorker has praised Mr. Jolley’s “richly melancholy horn solos”, and David Weininger in the Boston Globe observed the “clarity and light touch” of Gilles Vonsattel. The ensemble promises to offer chamber music par excellence to audiences across the United States.

Highlights for Trio Valtorna’s 2017-18 season include performances with Chamber on the Mountain and the Auburn Chamber Music Society.
