Nothing describes the Horszowski Trio better than the term "musical genius." The New York-based group formed in 2011, although the members had been close friends for years. When two-time Grammy-nominated violinist Jesse Mills sat down to play with cellist Raman Ramakrishnan and pianist Rieko Aizawa for the first time, magic happened. Their close musical bond was strengthened over the years while playing at various schools and music festivals around the world, including the esteemed Juilliard School in New York City.
The trio has been touring the country playing at the Peoples' Symphony and New School Concerts series in New York, the Athenaeum in La Jolla, Calif., the University of Texas and finally here in the District at the Phillips Collection (1600 21st St. NW). Tickets, which are $20 or $8 for members and students, include admission to the museum, and you can buy them at phillipscollection.org.
This concert is part of the weekly Music at the Phillips concert series that takes place in the Music Room each Sunday at 4 p.m. Perfect to take a friend to, there is a SunDate package for $50 that includes two tickets and a voucher for two preconcert cocktails and a dessert to share in Tryst at the Phillips cafe.
If you haven't had a classic cocktail in a while, then well, we'd suggest quite a few restaurants in the District that are making deliciously inventive cocktails. But today, we're showcasing Proof (775 G St. NW) and its recent pursuit of the classic cocktail. Bar manager Adam Bernbach and his team call it the "Remastered Edition" and will be mixing up four different representations of classic cocktails each Sunday this month. Bernbach will spotlight the daiquiri this Sunday in Proof's bar and lounge area from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. He'll offer a few different versions of the cocktail ranging from $11 to $14.
The next Remastered Edition, on Jan. 27, will feature the whiskey sour.
