One of the most exciting new ensembles to emerge in today’s music scene, Trio Les Amies is the collaboration of three well established, highly esteemed, and much loved artists. New York Philharmonic principal players Nancy Allen, harp, and Cynthia Phelps, viola, join internationally renowned flutist Carol Wincenc to form one of the most dynamic trios that this particular instrumental combination can produce. Merging their individual skills of high artistry and extraordinary technical command, they explore a vast range of repertoire rich in color, texture and imagination. Each of these artists stand alone at the top of their field, winning first prizes in renowned competitions and, as soloists, have been featured with the world’s major symphony orchestras. Championing new music has been a priority for these artists; collectively they have commissioned works from composers Lucas Foss, Joan Tower, Peter Shickele, and Sofia Guibaidulina, among many others. As the name Les Amies suggests, they are long-time colleagues, and revel in the glory of their blossoming relationship as artists, bringing to their audiences the color and beauty of this unusual trio combination of flute, viola and harp. All three musicians are also faculty members at the Juilliard School of Music.
