Announcing Trio 826's new CD - MOSAIC
When we began playing together as a trio, the classical music world was feeling the effects of the great recession: many ensembles, especially orchestras and opera companies, were struggling or even being forced to file for bankruptcy, and we had lengthy discussions about why this was happening. Our very first concert together was a show entitled “Houston, do we have a problem?” This show was half house concert, half focus group with a lovely audience in Iowa City, who shared with us their ideas about why they go to concerts and what the ideal concert experience should include. From that point on, we have continued to experiment with themes and venues, but our concerts usually have one thing in common: in addition to a longer, central work, we generally program a set of shorter, single-movement pieces that encourage conversations with our audiences. These short pieces have become such an essential part of our repertoire that when we began to think about our first CD, it was a natural fit to showcase them. These pieces are true gems, and deserve a place at the table - we hope you enjoy discovering them as much as we have!
