The young chamber ensemble Trio Cleonice from Boston has accomplished a lot since acting as New England Conservatory's Graduate Piano Trio-in-Residence. Cellist Gwen Krosnick, pianist Emely Phelps, and violinist Ari Isaacman-Beck have performed at the Kennedy Center, Boston's Jordan Hall, and the Concertgebouw in New Amsterdam, among numerous other venues. In the process, Trio Cleonice has interpreted everything from Mozart and Schubert to Bartók and contemporary composers like Richard Wernick. On Thursday afternoon, the trio will present a pair of free concerts on the Eastman School campus. Having gotten its start at The Juilliard School, the group has since asserted itself as a vital, up-and-coming presence in the chamber music scene.
Trio Cleonice will perform free concerts on Thursday, January 28, at 3:30 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs Street, and again at 7:30 p.m. at the Eastman Commons' Ciminelli Lounge, 100 Gibbs Street. esm.rochester.edu; triocleonice.com.
