Ravel Piano Trio
Haydn Piano Trio in C major Hob. XV:27

Paris-based Trio Zadig (French strings, American pianist) impressed at audition with their confidence, professionalism and the immediacy of their playing, which has an enormous colour range, energy and commitment. They are multiple prizewinners and have received warm recommendation from the luminary pianist Menahem Pressler.

The Ravel Piano Trio, with its warm modal melodies and shimmering virtuosity, highlights their talent to the utmost. The crisp, lively Haydn trio with its startling turns of harmony, shows the strength of their precision and ensemble playing. This is an ensemble with enormous potential for a major international career and we are proud to include them as our season opener.
