Friends of Music of Stamford NY presents the Claremont Trio. Emily Bruskin (violin), Andrea Lam (piano), and Julia Bruskin (cello) will play Haydn’s Trio No. 39 in G major, Hob. XV/25 “Gypsy”, Schumann’s Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 6, and Dvorak’s Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 “Dumky”.
Claremont Trio is sought after for its thrillingly virtuosic and richly communicative performances. First winners of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award and the only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Claremont Trio’s recent seasons have included engagements at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Library of Congress, Boston’s Celebrity Series, Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess Series, Johns Hopkins University, and the Austin Chamber Music Festival, to name a few. The Trio has performed the Beethoven Triple Concerto with orchestras such as the Nashville Symphony, Virginia Symphony, Pacific Symphony, and Utah Symphony.
Formed in 1999 at the Juilliard School, the Claremont Trio features twin sisters Emily Bruskin and Julia Bruskin both playing old French instruments (Emily's violin is a Lupot from 1795; Julia's cello is a J.B. Vuillaume from 1849). The Claremonts are based in New York City near their namesake, Claremont Avenue.
