“These musicians are so great that one feels completely overwhelmed! Precise both rhythmically and in regard to intonation, their interpretation is just brilliant! Don’t miss them!” This is how the critics write about the piano trio, made of Swiss musicians from the Canton of Valais, who have finished their studies of chamber music in Lausanne. The three excellent musicians have perfected their skills with the famous French trio Wanderer. Quite important was also their collaboration with the legendary pianist of the Beaux Arts Piano Trio, Menahem Pressler. They are also the protégées of the French composer, the almost hundred-year old Henri Dutilleux, who claims that they are “a first-rate and very sophisticated trio” The trio’s programme Nota bene, made of the regular repertoire literature for such ensembles, is also destinguished by a decidedly romantic touch. We are quite curious to hear their interpretation of the Trio, written by the Slav composer Antonín Dvořák, as well as to see their view of the works by Schubert and Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, which will be no less interesting as well.
