Trio Cleonice presents a recital in the popular lunchtime series at the Old South Meeting House.
Composed of violinist Ari Issacman-Beck, pianist Emely Phelps, and cellist Gwen Krosnick, the Trio was founded in 2008 at the Kneisel Hall chamber music festival and is coached at NEC by pianist Vivian Hornik Weilerstein. The group takes its name from the restaurant Cléonice in Ellsworth, ME. Not surprisingly, the players derive perhaps equal pleasure from music, fine dining and cooking. They perform with great joie de vivre. The title of their blog says it all—“Grilled Octopus and the Archduke.”
