by the Trio for Nuova Era,
are devoted to the 19th century music and present
four world premier recordings; the Trio collaborated with Renato
Bruson and the Orchestra Internazionale d’Italia in
preparing a CD of Italian songs.
The Trio has recorded for Edi-Pan, music by
Italian composers and has recently collaborated in preparing two CD's of
live music in occasion of the " VI Silesian Guitar Autumn" and the
"XIII Lubleskie Spotkania Gitarowe". The last recording of the Trio Concentus
is the CD "From the Piano"
published by Rivo Alto, presenting the transcriptions of four major masterpieces
by Musorgskij and Ravel. The transcriptions in this CD, which reveal a
very complex conception and, in some pieces, call for the use of a guitar
tuned one fifth lower, have been performed with great success in many concerts
in Italy and abroad.
In more of ten years of activity, the Trio
has enhanced the great potential of three guitars in the original repertoire
the Trio has rediscovered unpublished works
by composers of the 19th century; in the field of contemporary music, the
Trio has stimulated several authors to compose their works for the Trio.
Furthermore, these three guitarists have devoted themselves constantly
to a broad project on the use of transcription, seen not only as a means
of expanding the repertoire but also of research of the expressive possibilities
of the ensemble.
