Notes & Reviews:

Texas Christian University's Trio Con Brio performs two new works for clarinet, viola and piano. The first, by Russianborn composer Elena Sokolovski has an intriguing title - Venice Suite, Concerto Grosso for 3 Soloists & 9 Instruments. Indeed, each musician plays several instruments including glasses filled with wine. Eric Ewazen's Trio was commissioned by the Texas Christian University School of Music for Trio Con Brio and was premiered in March 2005. The three members of Trio Con Brio all serve on the faculty at Texas Christian University. Clarinetist Gary Whitman received the Chancellor's Distinguished Achievement Award as a Creative Teacher and Scholar and is a member of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. Violist Misha Galaganov has performed as a soloist and given master classes in Russia, china, Italy, Israel, Czech Republic, Mexico, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria and the United States. Pianist John Owings has appeared as soloist with orchestras and given solo recitals throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe and the Far East. He was gold medalist of the first Robert Casadesus International Piano Competition.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The concert is at once spirited and heartfelt. Galaganov and Owings are polished professionals, and the music is immediate and delightful, all the way from the bizarre sound world of the Sokolovski to the late 19th Century nostalgia of the Ewazen. Whitman shares in the enthusiasm and music making as well.
