Growing up playing classical music, we did a lot of research to find out what composers were thinking and how they wanted their music to sound. When we play new music, we know exactly what they want, and we’re the ones who get to create the style book for musicians of the future.
Violinist, Chartreuse String Trio
CHARTREUSE STRING TRIO
Chartreuse string trio is violinist Myra Hinrichs (Chicago), violist Carrie Frey (New York City), and cellist Helen Newby (San Francisco). The tricoastal trio pools the strengths of their cities of residence, commissioning new works from composers across the globe and collaborating with fellow performers. Chartreuse is uniquely committed to repeat performances and developing the string trio repertoire through adventurous commissions. Cleveland Classical described the trio in concert as "a maelstrom almost tactile in its grittiness."
