Youthful vigor, passion on stage and compelling playfulness, all based on a profound knowledge of sound perception and chamber music structures. This is how you would describe the musical trinity, which has been known since 2008 as the TRIO ALBA.
Franz Schubert (1797-1828): Trio op. 99 in B-flat Major
Andante un poco mosso
Helmut Jasbar (*1962): "Fugitive Pieces" based on the novel by Canadian Anne Michaels (2016)
Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884): Piano Trio op.15 in G-Minor
Allegro ma non agitato
TRIO ALBA - an allusion to alba (ital. sunrise, dawn) and the Swedish song “se solen sjunker”, that inspired Franz Schubert to the second movement of his Piano Trio in E-flat major.
They have matured and developed through worldwide performances in small and large concert halls, through award-winning CD-productions as well as intensive chamber music studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. There, the three met and found to a joint music-making: the German violinist Livia Sellin, the Austro-Italian cellist Philipp Comploi and the Chinese pianist Chengcheng Zhao.
In the summer of 2014, the Trio was invited to chamber music Festivals in New York and Canada, where they performed the world premiere of the third Piano Trio by Kelly-Marie Murphy, a work dedicated to the TRIO ALBA.
