Trio Rafale (Honolulu Chamber Music Series)
March 9, 2018, 7:30 pm
Maki Wiederkehr, piano
Daniel Meller, violin
Flurin Cuonz, cello
This promising piano trio from Switzerland carries the French name for a gust of wind, which can be a rough blast or just a warm breeze. Together, agitation and calm are a metaphor for movement in the form of music.
Since its foundation the trio has performed numerous concerts in all major cities of Switzerland and was a guest in 2012 at the “Lenzburgiade” and the “Hitzacker Musiktage” among others. In summer of 2013 the Trio Rafale made their successful debut in Paris and was invited once more to Hitzacker. They were on tour in autumn 2013 with the Swiss Youth Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Kai Bumann performing Beethoven’s triple concerto. In the past seasons the trio played concerts in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Ulm as well as at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the Davos Festival – young artists in concert.
Their debut CD with works by Schumann and Ravel appeared in 2012 (label monton). A second CD with works by Vasks and Brahms was released in 2013 (label Acousence). In February 2017 their newest CD followed with early works of Debussy, Rachmaninov, Shostakovitch and Henze, further a piece written for the trio by Swiss composer Jannik Giger.
