Notes & Reviews:

Composer Mary Lee Taylor Kinosian is also the violinist for the Upton Trio. Her music draws on and celebrates the American experience. The Upton Trio was formed in 1989 to present chamber music concerts for schools in South Carolina. The Trio has performed at Weill Recital Hall in New York City, at the Kennedy Center, and has been featured on NBC Nightly News. The Trio maintains an active commissioning program and has recorded several compact discs. The Upton Trio is permanent artist-in-residence at the Nickelodeon Theatre in Columbia, South Carolina.

"Mary Lee Taylor Kinosian is the violinist of the Upton Trio (with Dusan Vukajlovic, cello and Billy Shepherd, piano), based in Columbia, South Carolina. She's obviously a multi-talented and vigorous musician; her pieces have energy, flow, and aren't afraid to pile on the notes - but in the service of genuine expression. The trio plays her music passionately (it's good to see such mutual support among players), and I salute the natural, unpretentious way they make this new music an integral part of their profile. The three pieces are all programmatic, and two are suites...I think there are signs of a truly vital musical personality here that will actually find even more exciting material the more she pushes her envelope (as in the final movement of the Elements.) Time will tell." - Robert Carl, Fanfare
