Notes and Editorial Reviews

Trio Celeste presents this delightful new album of pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak, and more. The most intriguing aspect of this album is the work Constellations: Variations on a Theme by Beethoven, which features ten variations by various twentieth century composers. Trio Celeste is violinist Iryna Krechkovsky, cellist Ross Gasworth, and pianist Kevin Kwan Loucks. The group is based in Southern California and has been hailed as “A first-class ensemble... These players mesh well and easily as a group, thinking, breathing, and moving as one. The performance was patient, perfectly paced, and seamless.” - Timothy Mangan Trio Celeste presents this delightful new album of pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven, Antonin Dvorak, and more.
