Trio des Alpes

Saturday, November 15 | 8:00 p.m.
Trio des Alpes
Concert Hall (Performing Arts & Humanities Building)

“Individually excellent, they are even more impressive together,” wrote the Gazzetta di Mantova after a concert by the Italian-Swiss Trio des Alpes, thereby describing one of this Trio’s essential qualities: three independent, all-round successful personalities meeting as a trio. What attracts them is the quintessence of chamber music: dialogue, a shared sound and the blending of three instruments into a single whole.

The Trio’s program will feature works by women composers, including the United States premiere of a new piece by UMBC professor Linda Dusman:
Linda Dusman (United States): Thundersnow (2014, commissioned by the Trio des Alpes, U.S. premiere)
Iris Szeghy (Switzerland): Poetische Studien, selection (1984)
Maria Bonzanigo (Switzerland): Sole sui Cavalli di Sale – Sale sui Cavalli di Sole – (2014, commissioned by the Trio des Alpes, U.S. premiere)
Madeleine Ruggli (Switzerland): éclats (II) for viola, cello and piano (2014, commissioned by the Trio des Alpes, U.S. premiere)
Silvia Colastani (Italy): Canto rosso (2007)
Jennifer Higdon (United States): Fiery Red from Piano Trio (2003)
Rebecca Clarke (United Kingdom): Trio (1921)

Mirjam Tschopp, who gave her debut as a soloist aged 13, is equally successful on the violin and the viola, appearing as a soloist with renowned orchestras such as the WDR Symphonieorchester Köln under Semyon Bychkov and in chamber music with Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mandelring Quartet, among others. Claude Hauri has made his name as solo cellist of several excellent groups such as the Ensemble Nuovo Contrappunto in Florence and the Ensemble Algoritmo in Rome, and as a performer of new music. He has premiered a multitude of works, several dedicated to him, by important composers. Corrado Greco’s versatility adds further impetus to the Trio des Alpes. Besides performing with such personalities as Bruno Canino ormembers of the Berliner Philharmoniker, he is professor of musical communication and multimedia in Varese, where he also directs the Università dell’Insubria concert series.

This event is supported in part by Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council.
