Based in Naples, the trio’s three principals met as members of the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. The Ars Nova String Trio is establishing its members as vivid interpreters of the classics of the repertoire, advocates for new music, and dedicated teachers and mentors to a generation of young musicians. The Ars Nova String Trio musicians are from diverse backgrounds. Graduates of some of the world’s leading music schools — the Cleveland Institute of Music, New England Conservatory of Music, Indiana University, the Peabody Institute of Music, the Eastman School of Music and Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music — these musicians have performed in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Severance Hall, and in international venues in Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Japan. The Marlboro Music Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Tanglewood, and Chamber Music of the Rockies have hosted their summer chamber music performances. Musicians of Ars Nova have collaborated with Edgar Meyer, Joseph Silverstein, James Ehnes, Jeremy Denk, and members of the Cleveland Quartet and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
Alexandra Carlson excels as a chamber musician and soloist, winning prizes at the Maria Yudina International Piano Competition (Russia) and the “Hopes, Talents, Masters” Competition (Bulgaria). She has appeared in the Baltic International Piano Duo Festival, the Junger Kunstler Bayreuth Festival, the US-Russia Educational Bridge Project Festival and the Atlantic Music Festival. She performed Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with the Naples Orchestra. Carlson earned her Master of Piano Performance and her Doctorate of Musical Arts, cum laude, from the St. Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory.
