The German chamber music ensamble Bamberg Trio arrives at Stignani Theatre of Imola with a program including evocative pieces of Saint-Saëns, Schumann and Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. The three artists, Jewgeni Schuk at the violin, Alexander Hülshoff at the cello and Ilona Heilingloh at the piano, will perform on Saturday 20th January at 9 pm for the second edition of the ERF’s winter season at the Imola Theatre Ebe Stignani.

The Bamberg Trio, born and grown in Germany, well-known in the whole world, will offer the audience a concert made by different sounds and colours compared to the “usual baroque” – sounds and colours typical of German romanticism, so full of storms, sudden lightning and abstract fury. For this reason the music of Robert Alexander Schumann is part of the program of the concert. The composer, one of the greatest romantic composers in German, experienced firsthand the German romanticism’s storm. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy called Robert Schumann to teach at Leipzig in the conservatory he founded. And Saint-Saëns, years after the Maestro desperate death, will break with Niedermeyer school tradition by making his students study Schumann’s music – sometimes too fine to be appreciated in his life.

The Bamberg Trio performed in the mayor city as Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Dresden, Hamburg and in many capital city and international city as Brussels, Barcelona, Bergen, Ljubljana, Naples, Osaka, Shanghai, Riad, São Paulo, and they toured in South Africa, Japan, Mexico, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Norway, and South America. They won the German Grammy Award with the record of Schnittke and Shostakovich.
