FEBRUARY 20 at 8 PM  

Claremont Trio
Misha Armory

Coolidge Auditorium

Winners of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award, twins Emily and Julia Bruskin and Andrea Lam bring their talents to the Coolidge Auditorium. “Their exuberant performance and gutsy repertoire…was the kind of fresh approach that keeps chamber music alive” (Cincinnati Enquirer). They will present Helen Grime’s Three Whistler Miniatures, a piece commissioned by the trio in 2012 and inspired by artwork by James McNeill Whistler; one of the few chamber works by Mendelssohn’s sister; and Brahms’ final piano quartet featuring renowned violist of the Brentano Quartet, Misha Amory.
