Not only since Schubert’s “Der Hirt auf dem Felsen” (The Shepherd on the Rock) has chamber music for woodwind, voice and piano been considered a rare jewel in musical literature. The Trio Camerata 21 presents treasures of this genre in its wide-ranging programme of works ranging from the Romantic period to world premieres of contemporary works.

Whether solo, in duo or in trio, the three musicians of the Munich GEDOK ensemble have put together a diverse range of expressive miniatures of contrasting soundscapes.

 

The French composer Mélanie Bonis is represented with a late romantic piano solo, the British composer Rebecca Clarke, daughter of a native of Munich, emigrated to the USA in 1916 and composed multiple award-winning chamber music works. With “Schmetterling”, the Armenian Narine Khachatryan (*1979) has composed a new work especially for the ensemble, which will be premiered on this evening. Her sound language is influenced by Armenian folk music and sacred music.

 

Other works by renowned Munich-based female composers such as Gloria Coates, Konstantia Gourzi, Dorothee Eberhardt and Dorothea Hofmann round off the ensemble’s multifaceted programme of musical treasures.
