“Inspired By" was born out of our desire to commission new music for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano Trio that would be as musically rewarding and substantial as the current core repertoire for this instrumentation. We laid out our vision for the ‘inspired by’ aspect to be determined by each composer individually.  The first commission for this project dates back to 2011 when we asked composer Jonathan Kolm to write a piece inspired by the Johannes Brahms Trio. The result fit us beautifully as a group, and left us wanting to expand the project. The Beethoven Trio emerged as the obvious choice.  Spanish-American composer Elisenda Fábregas was our absolute first choice, and we were thrilled when she agreed!  The results strike the perfect balance of paying homage to titans of the past while exploring the present-day expressions of music.  Our CD will include all four of these compositions.
