Violinist Livia Sohn, cellist Luigi Piovano, and pianist Bernadene Blaha came together to form Latitude 41 in the summer of 2009, as a result of their previous musical collaborations and mutual passion for chamber music. Since their formation, highlights of Latitude 41 appearances include the Newport Music Festival (for the opening gala in 2009 and the closing gala in 2011), the L’Ermitage Foundation in Los Angeles, and “Sundays Live” at the L.A. County Museum of Art, which is streamed live across the internet and radio. Latitude 41 released its debut CD this year with the monumental Schubert Piano Trio in E flat, and Schubert Notturno, on the label Eloquentia. Highlights of future engagements include a recital for Maverick Concerts in NY, America’s oldest continuous summer chamber music festival, and Music in the Morning, in Vancouver. The latitude of the trio’s first performance venue in Rhode Island, as well as where cellist Luigi Piovano makes his home in Rome, Italy, are both Latitude 41.
