Trio Fibonacci presents Dreams of Tchaikovsky

The Trio Fibonacci invites 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. 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.
