As the only piano trio ever to win the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, the Claremont Trio has jumped to the forefront of young dynamic ensembles on the classical music scene. We sample a track from their recent release, "American Trios." Also, Margaret Leng Tan brings her pianistic skills to John Cage's music in "Jazz Study," and we enjoy a "Bacchanale," Russian-style, from composer Dmitri Shostakovich.
