CMC Presents: Trio Karenine
Founded in Paris in 2009, Trio Karénine bears the name of Tolstoys beautiful and emotionally honest heroine. The trio of Charlotte Juillard (violin), Louis Rodde (cello) and Paloma Kouider (piano) is acclaimed by critics and audiences for its musical integrity and passionate interpretation, and was the top prizewinner at the ARD International Competition in 2013. The group has performed in the worlds most prestigious halls, including the Philharmonie and Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, Londons Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Frick Collection in New York, Salle Bourgie in Montréal, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Herkulessaal and Prinzregententheater in Münich, and the Leiszhalle in Hamburg.
Centered around one of Europes most musical cities, Viennese Portraits presents two works by Franz Schubert, his famous piano trio No. 2, opus 100 as well as his Notturno, in which the three instruments have intimate conversations hinting at solitude, love, happiness, fear, and the mystery of death. The constant changes of mood in his music showcase Viennese culture with a touch of Biedermeyer style or a little ländler movement. Born nearly a century later, Erich Wolfgang Korngold was at the dawn of his life when he composed his trio, opus 1 at the age of 13 years old. Mahler thought he was a genius and Richard Strauss, Sibelius, Puccini, and his teacher Zemlinsky encouraged the young boy, raised in Vienna, to his musical destiny. If we are now in the last breath of the Viennese Romanticism, after the Vienna Secession movement, we nevertheless find in Korngolds music some echoes of Schubert such as motivic clarity and contrapuntal intricacy in the scherzo, or some truly Viennese marks such as magical swinging waltz.
