Trio Foss is a fusion of three wonderful Bay Area musicians: acclaimed soloist and chamber musician violinist Hrabba Atladottir, Grammy nominated cellist Nina Flyer, and pianist Miles Graber. New on the scene, we are delighted to welcome Trio Foss for their Classical at the Freight debut, which will include Brahms' fabulous Trio in C minor.
Icelandic violinist Hrabba Atladottir studied in Berlin, Germany with professor Axel Gerhardt and professor Tomasz Tomaszewski. After finishing her studies, Hrabba worked as a freelancing violinist in Berlin for five years, regularly playing with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsche Oper, and Deutsche Symphonieorchester. Hrabba also participated in a world tour with the Icelandic pop artist Björk, and a Germany tour with violinist Nigel Kennedy. Joshua Kosman, music critic of San Francisco Chronicle, praised her performance of Vivaldi’s “Spring”, and called her violin playing “delicate but fervent”.
Nina Flyer was a lecturer in cello and chamber music at the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music from 1997 to 2017. While there she founded the New Pacific Trio, which subsequently became Trio 180. She was also a lecturer in Cello at Cal State East Bay and taught at the Reykjavik School of Music. She holds a B.M. from the University of Southern California and has also studied at the Eastman School of Music and the Vienna Academy of Music. She is currently principal cello of the Pacific Chamber Symphony. She performs on a regular basis with the San Francisco Symphony and records for the TV and Motion Picture Industry.
Miles Graber, piano, received his musical training at the Julliard School, where he studied with Anne Hull, Phyllis Kreuter, Hugh Aiken, and Louise Behrend. He has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1971, where he has developed a wide reputation as an accompanist and collaborative pianist for instrumentalists and singers. He has performed with numerous solo artists, including Sarah Chang, Cho-Liang Lin, Camilla Wicks, Axel Strauss, Mimi Stillman, Judith LeClair, Martha Aarons, and Lev Polyakin. Mr. Graber performs frequently with violinists, Mariya Borozina and Christina Mok; flutists Gary Woodward, Amy Likar, and Ai Goldsmith; and clarinetist, Tom Rose. He is a member of the chamber groups, Trio Concertino, MusicAeterna, GGR Trio, and Sor Ensemble; as well as the new music group, Sounds New.
