The 2012-2013 Whitehead Concert Series continues with Soviet Russia and Eastern Europe on Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 at noon in the Whitehead Auditorium. The program will feature Trio Cleonice: Ari Isaacman-Beck (violin), Gwen Krosnick (cello). and Emely Phelps (piano). Music includes the Piano Trio No. 2 in E Minor, Op. 78 (1944) by Dmitri Shostakovich, and the Piano Trio in F Minor, Op. 65 (1883) by Antonin Dvorak. Trio Cleonice, Graduate Piano Trio-in-Residence at the New England Conservatory of Music, has quickly established itself as one of the most creative, communicative, and exciting young ensembles in the United States. Violinist Ari Isaacman-Beck, cellist Gwen Krosnick, and pianist Emely Phelps formed Trio Cleonice in 2008 at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival; the group enjoys a diverse repertoire that spans early trios of Mozart and Beethoven through romantic masterworks and new pieces, including commissions, for the genre. Refreshments will be served. All concerts in this series are free to the Whitehead community and friends.
