Local audiences should diarize the 23 July when Canadian musicians of the Trio Fibonacci presents a World Premiere of a new composition by South African composer Michael Blake along with music by Mozart, Schubert and Haydn. The Trio Fibonacci brings together three Canadian virtuosi: violinist Julie-Anne Derome (Virginia Parker Prize of the Canada Council for the Arts), cellist Gabriel Prynn (King Edward VII Foundation Award) and Wonny Song (winner of the Washington Performing Arts Society competition). For their 2011 tour of South Africa they shall apply their formidable talents to works by Schubert – Piano Trio No.1 in B flat major, D. 898, Mozart – Piano Trio in C major K548 and Haydn – Piano Trio in G major ‘Gypsy Rondo’, Hob XV:25 written at the height of their genius, as well as the World Premiere a new piece ‘Carpet of Memory’ by Michael Blake, one of South Africa’s most respected composers.
Following its creation in 1998 the Trio Fibonacci quickly established itself as a world-class chamber ensemble in new music. Today Trio Fibonacci is recognised as one of the only piano trios that can perform cutting edge contemporary music alongside masterpieces of earlier eras with equal brilliance. Indeed audiences on four continents have had the opportunity to hear them give inspiring interpretations of the piano trios of Beethoven, Brahms, Ravel, Shostakovich, Schumann and others. Their stalwart commitment to the music of our time has earned them international respect and they have so far commissioned and premièred more than thirty new pieces and worked with such renowned composers as Jonathan Harvey, Mauricio Kagel, Henri Pousseur, Enno Poppe, Nicolaus A. Huber, Pascal Dusapin and Michael Finnissy. Their concert tours have led them to the Ars Musica, Aldeburgh, Ultraschall, Winnipeg and Strasbourgfestivals, to Argentina, South Africa, Chile, and Japan, to Berlin, San Francisco and New York. Trio Fibonacci has performed for television in Canada, China, and Brazil, and their concerts are regularly broadcast on Canadian radio networks. They have produced four commercial CD’s.
The Trio Fibonacci has been guided by some of the world’s most respected chamber musicians, including Menahem Pressler, members of the Alban Berg, American, Guarneri, Emerson and Vermeer String Quartets, and by their mentors Eberhard Feltz and Michael Vogler inBerlin.
The Trio Fibonacci was the ensemble-in-residence at the Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur in Montreal between 2004 and 2007 and is currently in residence at the Conservatoire de Québec.
