Programme 1

Beethoven’s Ghost

„Music, Love and Wine“

Ludwig van Beethoven is one of the most famous composers in the world, every year thousands of his works are played and performed worldwide.

TriOsarte ’s  Beethoven concert in collaboration with soprano Natalia Atamanchuk and the actor Helmut Thiele is dedicated to Beethoven’s smaller chamber music works. In addition to more well-known  works such as the „ Ghost Trio“ and the Moonlight Sonata for Piano, there is a selection of folk song arrangements for voice with piano trio accompaniment that can be described as rediscovered jewels. These are small, very personal works that remained undiscovered for many years. The story of how this folk song collection evolved is as exciting as the music itself.

This chamber music evening enables the audience to discover Beethoven the man and understand the effects of his personal experiences on his music.

Wintertime in music and poetry

Crisply the bright snow whispered“ Sarah Teasdale

Winter – all of nature seems to be asleep. The weather is cold, the ground is hard and the trees and plants are covered with a thin layer of white splendour, their ice crystals glistening in the light. By candlelight or by the fireplace, we take time to reflect on past events, but also to make plans and look forward to warmer days. In this winter concert, TriOsarte aims to capture the different sides of this season.

Programme 8

„I love to see the summer beaming forth
And white wool sack clouds sailing to the north“
 John Clare

The scent of flowers fills the air and somehow summer is never long enough to fully experience its beauty. In order to enjoy this season even more, TriOsarte presents a programme of selected music  together with poetry and prose in praise of the summer.

An Ode to Autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness John Keats

Autumn is a stunning season that holds many charms for us to enjoy. Its blaze of colours and golden light warms our souls. Kicking through piles of leaves, gathering chestnuts and drinking hot tea are amongst the pleasures it brings.

Sink into the beauty of this time of year with TriOsarte presenting a programme of selected music and poetry in praise of this glorious season.
