About

In the two years since winning The Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Claremont Trio, comprised of twin virtuoso string-playing sisters Emily and Julia Bruskin and pianist Donna Kwang (their colleague from New Mexico’s Taos School of Music), has won national and international acclaim. The Detroit Free Press raved, “The Claremont Trio plays with striking unanimity of tone, balance, and interpretive temperament. Their ravishing account of Mendelssohn’s Trio in C Minor was filled with passionate outbursts of song.”

After a recent recital at Wolf Trap Farm Park by the award-winning violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama, Joseph McLellan wrote in The Washington Post that she “poured out serene melodies—elegantly phrased by Ngwenyama—and virtuoso fireworks that she made seem easy.”
