The Claremont Trio, premier piano trio of its generation, returns to The Chapel Restoration on Sunday, Sept. 21. The 4 p.m. concert is free. Emily Bruskin, violin, Julia Bruskin, cello, and Andrea Lam, piano, will perform Brahms’ Trio in C Minor and Beethoven’s Trio in D Major, called Ghost because one of his students said it reminded him of the ghost of Hamlet’s father. The name stuck.
The trio is sought after for thrillingly virtuosic and richly communicative performances. First winners of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award and only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, they have appeared in every major venue in New York City, including Avery Fisher, Carnegie and Alice Tully halls as well as elsewhere in the country. All members of the trio are graduates of The Juilliard School and each is an accomplished and established soloist.
The Chapel Restoration is at 45 Market St., Cold Spring. This series is made possible, in part, through Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program, with funds from New York State Council on the Arts, the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the State Legislature, and funds from Putnam County. Contributions are welcome and gratefully acknowledged in the program.
