The Grand County Concert Series (GCCS) begins its 15th season with the Poulenc Trio, the most active touring piano-wind chamber music ensemble in the world joined by violinist Anton Lande. Since its founding in 2003, the trio has performed in 45 U.S. states and at music festivals around the world, including the Ravello Festival in Italy, the San Miguel de Allende Festival in Mexico, and the White Nights Festival in Russia.
In a recent review, the New York Times praised the trio for its “elegant rendition” of Piazzolla’s Tangos. The Washington Post said the trio “does its namesake proud” in “an intriguing and beautifully played program” with “convincing elegance, near effortless lightness and grace.” A recent performance in Florida – for which the Palm Beach Post praised the group’s “polished loveliness” and the Palm Beach Daily News said the “potent combination” of oboe, bassoon and piano had “captured the magic of chamber music” — was rebroadcast on American Public Media’s nationally syndicated radio program, Performance Today. The trio has garnered positive attention in recent full-length profiles by Chamber Music magazine, and by the Double Reed Journal. The group has been called “virtuosos of classical and contemporary chamber music” in one profile for Russian television.
The Poulenc Trio’s program on Friday January 12, 2018 will include the Trio Sonata in F-major by George Friedrich Handel, Trio for Oboe, Basson and Piano by Jean Francaix, Fantaisie Concertante on themes from l’Italiana in Algeri by Gioacchino Rossini and a piece written for the Poulenc Trio, Three Études by Tom Benjamin. The Poulenc Trio will conclude the evening with Suite from The Threepenny Opera by Kurt Weill including The Ballad of Mack the Knife. Please join us for this excellent evening with program spanning the centuries from contemporary to the 1700’s.
