The October concert of the Music at Trinity concert series features the Ottawa Guitar Trio comprised of Nathan Bredeson, François Lacelle, and Alexandre Bougie. They are preparing a wonderful program of classical music gems and music composed for some of our favorite movies, in a guitar trio setting. Since, for the most part, the music they will perform was not originally composed for three guitars, one had to arrange the music and adapt it to this new medium. For most of the program, the music was arranged by the members the trio themselves and one can appreciate the level of artistry it takes for someone to arrange a score conceived in some cases for a full orchestra to a smaller setting such as a guitar trio.
On the heels of the International Women’s Day, Music at Trinity presents a concert entitled Inner Voice: Exploring Women’s Voice and Identity through Music. The program features two important works of the English composer and violist Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979), Morpheus and her Sonata for viola and piano along with Johannes Brahms’ (1833-1897) Zwei Gesänge op.91 for mezzo-soprano, viola and piano. Violist Kathryn Cobbler, along with mezzo-soprano Heather-Lynn Smith and pianist Sonya Sweeney will perform this lovely program on March 10, 2018 at 4:30pm.
Ebonies in Harmony is a two clarinet-one piano trio featuring Sylvie Duchesneau (clarinet-bass clarinet) and Roxanne Léveillé (clarinet) and myself, Fabien Tousignant (piano). We invite you to experience a wonderful repertoire which blends the virtuosity and “velouté” of these instruments. We have put together a nice programme of some favorites of the classical repertoire arranged for two clarinets and piano, along with pieces written specifically for this kind of ensemble. You will have the opportunity to hear works by Mendelssohn, Ponchielli, Dvořák, some Klezmer and more.
