Lauded as “one of America’s finest young chamber groups” by Strad Magazine, the Claremont Trio is sought after for its thrillingly virtuosic and richly communicative performances. The first winners of the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award, the Claremonts are consistently lauded for their “aesthetic maturity, interpretive depth and exuberance” (Palm Beach Daily News).
Bridge Records released the Claremont Trio’s newest recording of the Beethoven’s “Triple” Concerto with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra and Beethoven’s Trio Op. 1 No. 1 to critical acclaim. Their discography also includes trios by Ravel, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, Arensky, Leon Kirchner, Ellen Zwilich, Paul Schoenfield and Mason Bates.
The Claremont Trio was formed in 1999 at the Juilliard School. Twin sisters Emily Bruskin, violin, and Julia Bruskin, cello, and pianist Andrea Lam are all based in New York City near their namesake Claremont Avenue.
