Trio Fibonacci – Slavic Romance

Slavic music in the spotlight! With these two Bohemian musical icons, the musicians take us on a journey through a whole range of emotions. Smetana’s vibrantly emotional trio was also his first major chamber music composition. Here the father of Czech music established the tradition of elegiac trios, probing the human soul and oscillating between melancholic moments and moments of dazzling gaiety. Dvorák’s trio, like a dark introspective song at times, a light, joyful dance at others, adds to the fiery intensity of this concert.

Trio Fibonacci made its first appearance on the Canadian music scene in 1998, with the press reporting that “to hear them is to enter into the world of miracles” (Le Devoir, Montreal). The Trio Fibonacci has been guided by some of the world’s most respected chamber musicians, including Menahem Pressler, members of the Alban Berg, Guarneri and Vermeer String Quartets, and by their mentors Eberhard Feltz and Michael Vogler in Berlin.

Trio Fibonacci is internationally recognized for its brilliant interpretations of the entire piano trio repertoire, from the works of Haydn through to collaborations with over sixty living composers on four continents. Their concert tours have led them to several European countries, to Argentina, South Africa, Brazil and Japan, to Berlin, San Francisco and New York. Trio Fibonacci has performed for television in Canada, China, and Brazil, and their concerts have been broadcast on Canadian, German, Belgian and Chilean radio networks.
