Claremont Trio

Friday, January 27, 2012 | 8:00 pm

Nelson Music Room


Hailed as “deft, exhilarating, and imaginative” by Strings Magazine, the Claremont Trio couples a powerful, energetic style with an uncommon assurance. First recipients of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award, the Claremonts — sisters Emily Bruskin (violin) and Julia Bruskin (cello), with Andrea Lam (piano) — generate enthusiastic acclaim wherever they perform. The Naples Daily News called them “the freshest breath of air in the world of chamber music today.” They aspire (in their own words) to make their music “exhilarating, heart-wrenching, and ultimately life-changing.”
