Salon Series: Gloriosa Piano Trio

Salon Series offers intimate concerts with a new generation of classical musicians— this time with the Gloriosa Piano Trio. “Driven by lush violin-and-cello unison melodies” and a timbre that is “fuller than the brain imagines three musicians can sound,” Jon Sobel, BlogCritics, the Gloriosa Piano Trio burst onto the music scene in January 2014 as brightly as the flame lily for which the group is named. The trio's carefully-crafted thematic programs delivered in exuberant performance have appealed to diverse audiences around the country, with critics hailing the Gloriosa Piano Trio’s debut concerts in Palm Beach and New York City as “...a special, aesthetic experience not to be ignored” Allen Rosenberg, the Daily News, while marveling that “...the Gloriosa Piano Trio played as if the musicians had been together for years.” (Jon Sobel, BlogCritics). All experienced chamber musicians with a passion for collaboration, pianist Yoonie Han, violinist Jennifer Carsillo, and cellist Kevin Bate looked to the beauty of nature to inspire them with a name for their group, finding in the Gloriosa lily a fitting symbol to describe their fervent desire to share the music they love. The trio has performed and taught at the New Jersey City University, University of North Florida Jacksonville, Emory University, Georgia Southwestern State University, and Boulder Chamber Orchestra Music Series. The Gloriosa Piano Trio enthusiastically work with living composers, having commissioned new pieces from Philip Glass, Theodore Wiprud, and Karen LeFrak.
