Film Festival.

Their performances are in various configurations and different instrument combinations, and without many original compositions for a trio, the band presents adaptations and arrangements of selected works. Masterpieces of Romanticism are the core of their repertoire.

In September 2015,Transfigured Brahms was released, which includes the world-premiere recording of four transcriptions by American composer Lowell Liebermann. Malan maintains a full performance schedule as recitalist, orchestral soloist, and chamber musician in major venues throughout the world. After her European debut in Rome, further highlights have included Carnegie Recital Hall, Théâtre du Châtelet & Salle Cortot (Paris), Mozarteum (Salzburg), Liszt Museum (Budapest), Orchestra Hall (Chicago), Alte Handelsbörse (Leipzig), Bass Hall (Fort Worth), as well as the Ravinia, Gilmore & Music in the Mountain Festivals.

Malan’s career was launched following five gold medals in 2000 at international piano competitions throughout the United States. These included the Louise McMahon, Missouri Southern, Los Angeles Liszt “Budapest Concert,” and Hilton Head International Piano Competitions. She also garnered the grand prize in the 2000 Web Concert Hall Competition and gold medals in both the Grace Welsh Piano Competition and the Young Texas Artist Award.

Its music directors have included Lukas Foss, Richard Dufallo, Mehli Mehta, Samuel Krachmalnick, Alexander Treger, and Jon Robertson.

He has given premieres of works by Steve Reich, Dmitri Smirnov, Joan Tower, Peter Schat, and Peter van Onna, and led the period-instrument Philharmonia Baroque in a festival of Mozart orchestral and operatic works. In 2001, he conducted Philip Glass’s opera Akhnaten at the Rotterdam Festival and Thomas Adès’s Powder Her Face with Long Beach Opera. A native of Detroit, Stulberg is a graduate of Harvard College, the University of Michigan, and the Juilliard School.
