Trio Solisti: Café Music
Trio Solisti's new disc, Café Music, based on the title of Paul Schoenfield's popular trio, is a program full of surprise and high spirits. Beginning with Astor Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, in a spicy arrangement by Piazzolla's own sideman, José Bragato and Trio Solisti violinist Maria Bachmann, the group segues to the late Argentinian composer's sultry Le Grand Tango. Paul Schoenfield's Café Music continues the disc's boundary-breaking mix of popular and classical, followed by Joaquin Turina's soulful second Trio. To close this delightful program, Trio Solisti performs Gershwin's It Ain't Necessarily So in Maria Bachmann's arrangement. Whether playing a popular program like the one heard, or playing cutting edge new music, Trio Solisti has earned a reputation for its passionate, committed and adventurous programming. This disc marks Trio Solisti's debut on the Bridge label.
