Zodiac Trio

Works by Philip Glass, Ned Rorem, Paul Schoenfield, Peter Schickele and Andrew List.Featured in the international London-based Muso magazine as one of the most promising ensembles of its generation, the Zodiac Trio brings together clarinet, violin and piano in an intriguing combination, bringing to light unique repertoire and standing as a strong advocate for contemporary music. Praised for their “musicality of rare intensity” (La Tribune, France), the young ensemble formed in New York and worked closely with the renowned Ysaye Quartet at the Paris Conservatory. Their artistry has been recognized at numerous international competitions, and welcomed on stages throughout the US, Europe and Japan. For this concert, the Zodiac Trio turns its attention to American chamber music, celebrating its many roots and inspirations that can be found in jazz, blues, klezmer music, etc. The program will feature music by legendary living composers such as Philip Glass and Ned Rorem, as well as klezmer-orineted Freylach by Paul Schoenfield, a light-hearted work by the notorious Peter Schickele (aka P.D.Q Bach), in addition to a special performance of a work by Andrew List (faculty at Berklee College of Music in Boston), with whom the trio has been working in an intensive collaboration.
