GIORGIA TOMASSI | CARLO MARIA GRIGUOLI | ALESSANDRO STELLA

Friday 17 January 2014
Tomassi Griguoli Stella

Our forays into the repertoire for more than one piano, bring us this time to the piano trio, a kind of ensemble which is rarely hosted in other concert seasons, not least because of the difficulty of making available three instruments of proper quality.
The Trio Tomassi-Griguoli-Stella debuted in 2010 at the “Martha Argerich Project” in Lugano with a rousing performance of The Firebird Suite by Igor Stravinsky. Since then, the Trio has become a regular guest at the “Project”, collecting at every performance enthusiastic audience and critical acclaim.
The amazing musical understanding of the three pianists and the spectacular virtuosity of the whole are the outcome of the extensive experience in piano duo (also attested on highly praised CDs) of Giorgia Tomassi with Alessandro Stella and Carlo Maria Griguoli, who is also the author of the outstanding transcriptions of great masterpieces of the symphonic repertoire, especially from twentieth century, which make up the main body of the Trio’s repertoire.
The Trio is also taking care of the expansion of the repertoire for three pianos, involving renowned composers who have joined with enthusiasm to the proposal to write for this original ensemble.

"And the transcription of Stravinsky reaches truly exceptional moments
of melting and virtuosity ..."
