Trio Fibonacci

Three Russian trios that go straight to the heart! Composed in the tradition of elegiac or commemorative trios, these pieces stand out both for their universality and for their Slavic colours. Arensky’s trio draws us into its dramatic atmosphere and its lyricism which dances between melancholy and sweetness. Rachmaninoff, the last great Romantic whose 150th birthday we celebrate this year, then offers us music on the scale of his nation, where Eastern sounds meet those of the Orthodox Church choirs. Shostakovich, for his part, transcends the individual to touch the universal. The nostalgia of Russian folklore mingles with Jewish melodies in his work inspired by mourning, the discovery of the concentration camps and, more broadly, the trauma of war. It also echoes the conflict that caused our pianist to flee his native country and for whom the notes of this concert will resonate with a special emotion.
