Concert 1 : La Belle Époque (livestream)
Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 4 pm
The Trio Fibonacci brings us some notes of lightness inspired by French music from La Belle Epoque. This short-lived golden period, in which the European bourgeoisie lived in a particularly carefree atmosphere, is beautifully illustrated by the second trio of Saint-Saëns, full of enthusiasm and optimism. Fauré, his student, offers us bewitching melodies inspired by plainchant. Finally, modernity, tradition and exoticism intertwine in the legendary Ravel Trio. A concert with lyrical colors emblematic of the mood prevailing in France in those years!

Concert 2 : Dreams of Tchaikovsky
Saturday December 12 2020 at 7:30 PM (webcast)
The musicians invite you on a dreamlike journey in the footsteps of the great Russian masters! Tchaikovsky stands out with his astonishingly lyrical trio, whose romanticism sparkles in all its facets. The Russian soul then continues to sing as we discover a jewel of Arensky's chamber music. A youthful work by Shostakovich allows us to capture all the complexity and the light that would illuminate his writing. While Schnittke's Trio Tango reveals the uniqueness and genius of this composer whose signature polystylism never fails to charm.

Discover this captivating repertoire which goes to the heart of melody! The key work of this concert: the masterful recomposition of the Four Seasons by Max Richter, which breaks through the barriers of time and space. A sequel to Vivaldi’s masterpiece, to which the trio will bring their colors and textures in a most intimate new interpretation. The musicians will then bring to life the haunting simplicity of other giants of minimalism (Glass, Einaudi). While a pearl of folk music completes the program to offer you a maximum of emotion with a minimum of notes.

Concert 4 : Romantic destinies
Saturday May 8 2021
Dive into the contrasting colours of two masters of German Romanticism. The Schumann trio first transports us to a dreamlike world, bursting with unbridled emotion. The strings conjure up his tormented soul, the piano invokes his melancholy as we navigate through all the layers of Schumann’s thoughts. This tragic complexity of feelings set to music by Schumann is answered by Mendelssohn's luminosity. The most classic of the Romantics reveals in this trio, considered to be the quintessence of his chamber music, a sparkling and lyrical brilliance. Its classical forms and Romantic expression also remind us that Mendelssohn always stood on the edge of the abyss, while Schumann plunged into it with passion. This foray into the golden age of Romanticism allows the Trio Fibonacci to reconcile their turbulent friendship.
