In the 2006-07 season, the Claremont Trio, hailed as "deft, exhilarating, and imaginative" by Strings Magazine, embarked on a concert tour throughout every region of the U.S. First recipients of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award, the Claremonts (Emily Bruskin, violin; Julia Bruskin, 'cello; Donna Kwong, piano) generate enthusiastic acclaim wherever they perform. The Naples Daily News calls them "the freshest breath of air in the world of chamber music today".
Deeply committed to expanding the piano trio
repertoire, the group has commissioned and premiered compositions by Daniel
Kellogg, Mason Bates, and Hillary Zipper. The Trio is also extensively
involved in music education and has been recognized for its engaging and
interactive programs for students of all ages.
