haydn: the complete piano trios volume 1 (2022)
Trio Gaspard is embarking on a new project, recording the complete Haydn piano trios on Chandos Records.
Haydn has been central to the repertoire of Trio Gaspard since its inception, in 2010, to the extent that it is rare that the group does not feature his music in concert programmes.
Volume 1 features "one bar wonder” by the group’s good friend, percussionist and composer Johannes Fischer.
Russian RootS (2022)
Russian Roots is the début recording of Trio Gaspard for Chandos Records, for which the group is joined by the soprano Katharina Konradi in a diverse and rewarding programme that explores the Russian influence across almost 200 years of music. A selection of Russian folksongs set by Beethoven, Shostakovich’s First Piano Trio and Seven Romances on Poems by Blok, and Weinberg’s Jewish Songs form the backbone of the recital. These are complemented by vocalises (wordless songs) by Stravinsky, Rachmaninoff, Gubaidulina, and Auerbach.
Katharina Konradi is the first soprano from Kyrgyzstan to have achieved an international career as a Lieder, concert, and opera singer. A BBC New Generation Artist, she won the Deutsche Musikwettbewerb in 2016 and became a member of Staatsoper Hamburg in 2018, where she sings the major soprano roles.
LIVE IN BERLIN (2020)
Trio Gaspard's debut album ''Live in Berlin'', with works by Haydn, B.A.Zimmermann and Schubert, was performed live at the Boulez Saal in Berlin. The album was released on CAvI Music in cooperation with Deutschlandradio.
