Concert 1 : La Belle Époque
Sunday, October 11, 2020,

11 am & 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!

Camille Saint-Saëns

Trio No.2, Op. 92

Concert 2 : Dreams of Tchaikovsky

Friday December 4 2020

 

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.

Trio No. 1, Op. 8


Anton Arensky

Elegy from Trio in D minor, Op. 32

It has become an unmissable event of the season for aficionados of the Trio Fibonacci: the meeting with the giants of minimalism. This captivating repertoire that goes to the heart of melody continues to surprise us with its fascinating simplicity and the refined charm of its melodies. The trio explores this richness through new works written by these composers of our time and transcriptions created for this concert. A maximum of emotion with a minimum of notes - never two without three!

Works by Philip Glass, Ludovico Einaudi, Brian Eno, Max Richter and a premiere from a Montreal composer.

Concert 4 : Brushstrokes

Saturday May 8 2021
 

From bow strokes to brushstrokes! The musicians offer you a foray into the visual universe of three outstanding composers from their respective eras. We begin with J.S. Bach, where the art of his grandson will echo that of the great Baroque composer, highlighted by on-screen projections and the use of period instruments. The painting ‘Listening to Schumann’ will then serve as a visual backdrop for Schumann's highly emotional first trio, also recalling the place of the arts in the life of the Romantics. Lastly, the lightness and uniquely touching quality of Mendelssohn's music can be admired in parallel with the artistic talents of this composer who never gave up his passion for his pencils and brushes.

 

Program:
 

J.S. Bach

Sonata for violin and basso continuo, BWV 1021
 

Robert Schumann

Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 63
 

Felix Mendelssohn

Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49
