Trio Fibonacci

Romantic Destinies

Dive into the contrasting colors of two masters of German Romanticism. The Schumann trio first transports us to a dreamlike world, bursting with unbridled emotion. The strings conjure up his tormented soul, the piano invokes his melancholy as we navigate through all the layers of Schumann’s thoughts. This tragic complexity of feelings set to music by Schumann is answered by Mendelssohn’s luminosity. The most classic of the Romantics reveals in this trio, considered to be the quintessence of his chamber music, a sparkling and lyrical brilliance. Its classical forms and Romantic expression also remind us that Mendelssohn always stood on the edge of the abyss, while Schumann plunged into it with passion. This foray into the golden age of Romanticism allows the Trio Fibonacci to reconcile their turbulent friendship.
