Amelia Piano Trio
The Amelia Piano Trio (Anthea Kreston, Jason Duckles, and Andrew Armstrong ) has emerged as a passionate and daring chamber ensemble that enchants audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Hailed as “remarkable” by Strings and “exemplary” by Strad, the Amelia Piano Trio stands out as one of the brightest young groups on the classical-music scene. Winners of the prestigious 2003 CMA/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, the Amelias are advocates of new music and non-Western music. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Harbison wrote his first Piano Trio for the Amelias. Other commissions have included Augusta Read Thomas’s A Circle Around the Sun and Adam Silverman’s Sturm. At the invitation of Yo-Yo Ma, the Amelias participated in the Silk Road Project and toured Central Asia. The trio has performed extensively in North America and abroad, including France, Italy, the Caribbean, and Panama. They have recorded for Koch and the world music label Global Crossings. This is the Amelia Piano Trio’s first recording for Cedille Records.
