The internationally acclaimed Eroica Trio will premiere a newly commissioned work by Islander and composer Bruce Wolosoff called “The Loom,” music that was inspired by the paintings of Eric Fischl, on Sunday, September 14 at 1:30 p.m. at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. The program will also include trios by Beethoven and Smetana.

Good friends Bruce Wolosoff and Eric Fischl collaborated on the project; it began with Mr. Wolosoff composing music inspired by Mr. Fischl’s images and ended with Mr. Fischl creating a new painting in response to Mr. Wolosoff’s music.

Mr. Wolosoff has a close association with the Eroica Trio, which has performed his music for the past several years. He is currently composing a cello concerto for the trio’s cellist, Sara Sant’Ambrogio.

Obviously talent runs in the Wolosoff family: daughter Juliet Garrett’s band, “Psychobaby,” just released their first EP. Check it out on
