The only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Claremonts are consistently lauded for their “aesthetic maturity, interpretive depth, and exuberance” (Palm Beach Daily News).  A participating ensemble in Ravinia’s Steans Institute for Young Artists in 2002, the group will showcase their mastery of diverse styles, from the Romanticism of Robert Schumann to the gossamer delicacy of Ravel’s Impressionism and the lyrical accessibility of film composer Castelnuovo-Tedesco. “Enlightening, riveting, and just plain fun to watch,” (Worcester Telegram & Gazette), this stunning trio exhibits “the kind of fresh approach that keeps chamber music alive” (Cincinnati Enquirer).

Schumann:  Trio in F Major, Op. 80
Castelnuovo-Tedesco:  Trio No. 2 in G Minor
Ravel:  Trio
