About FRATRES TRIO

Few years ago, three internationally successful soloists and avid chamber musicians gathered together to form a new type of ensemble offering a perfectly balanced combination of string, keyboard and wind instruments, adding an entirely new dimension to the listening experience.

Since its foundation, the Fratres Trio has won several prizes including the FNAPEC and the Illzach international chamber music competitions, and has performed at prestigious venues such as the Tonhalle Zürich, the Vienna Musikverein and the St Petersburg Capella. The ensemble’s CD 

Couleurs d’un rêve has been excellently acclaimed by the international press and became laureate of the Supersonic Award by Pizzicato Magazine.

In the Twenties, after the turbulence of World War I, a new fashion started to conquer Paris: JAZZ.

Artists such as Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Charlie Chaplin or Maurice Ravel celebrated the freedom spirit of those years in the club “Le boeuf sur le toit” (The ox on the roof).

Light and entertaining, from the Brazilian rhythms of Darius Milhaud to the Broadway songs by George Gershwin, Fedor Rudin, Hayrapet Arakelyan and Florian Noack invite you to relive these fascinating times.
