- Including the world premiere recording of Miguel del Aguila's "Submerged", composed for Hat Trick
This outstanding recording features the recently publish Carl Fischer edition of Debussy's immortal Sonata.  The edition, for the first time, honors all of Debussy's original indications, many of which were omitted during the work's previous editions.  Hat Trick also performs the rarely heard Dubois Terzettino, a composition which preceded Debussy's by a decade, and which is the earliest known piece for flute, viola and harp.  In addition, Hat Trick plays works by Toru Takemitsu, Sofia Gubaidulina, and gives the world premiere recording of Miguel del Aguila's "Submerged", composed for Hat Trick.
Formed in 2013, Hat Trick is a virtuosic flute-viola-harp trio whose members are equally at home as chamber musicians, soloists, and agents of audience engagement.  Hat Trick presents works commissioned by and for the ensemble, performs exemplars from the classic trio repertoire, and also brings to life more eclectic works.  The ensemble aims to broaden the flute, viola, harp repertoire and showcase its individual and collective strengths.  Hat Trick uses strategic programming to provide listeners with deeper perceptions of trio masterworks by Debussy, Takemitsu, Gubaidulina, and lesser-known composers. Hat Trick is based in the New York City area, with concerts scheduled locally and across the country.  The trio recorded a debut CD in December 2014 with multi-Grammy-winning classical producer David Frost and looks forward to its upcoming release.
