Notes & Reviews:

The nucleus of the program on Trio Cleste's self-titled debut release on Navona Records is a collection of variations on the well-known and stately opening theme of the second movement from Beethoven's Piano Trio in G Major, Op. 1, No. 2. Consisting of Iryna Krechkovsky, violin; Ross Gasworth, cello; and Kevin Kwan Loucks, piano; the Trio has been praised as "a first-class ensemble" (Orange County Register) and "exuberant and technically dazzling" (Long Beach Gazette) and "one of the best young chamber groups around today" (Philip Setzer, Emerson String Quartet). The title for Constellations was inspired by the cosmic nature of the project itself; like many unique sets of variations, constellations are beautiful, varied patterns that share both explicit and implicit commonalities. The album presents works from ten renowned composers that bridges the gap between old and modern, revitalizing one of Beethoven's most stunning and memorable themes. The diverse collection represents an extraordinary range of interpretations resulting in one of the most unique contributions to the piano trio repertoire in the last decade. Trio Cleste is currently Ensemble-in-Residence at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine. Trio Cleste currently leads the performance, educational, and marketing divisions of the classical music organization Chamber Music OC, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the art of chamber music through performance, education, and community outreach Trio Cleste directs UC Irvine's Summer Chamber Music Festival and regularly presents masterclasses, educational forums, and outreach events worldwide.
