Info zu Milhaud & Martinů: Complete Works for String Trio

Darius Milhaud und Bohuslav Martinů – Generationsgenossen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts: Die Gegenüberstellung des Gesamtwerks der beiden Komponisten für Streichtrio offenbart vier Wunderwerke intimen Musizierens, die das Jacques Thibaud Trio mit dem ihm eigenen Spürsinn und Geschmack musiziert.

So manche biografische Verbindungslinien existieren zwischen dem Südfranzosen Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) und dem vom Mährisch-böhmischen Hochland stammenden Bohuslav Martinů (1890-1959). Beide brauchten die Metropole Paris, den brodelnden künstlerischen Schmelztiegel nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg, um ihre Originalität auszubilden; beide waren stilistisch offen für alle möglichen Strömungen von der südamerikanischen Folklore über den nordamerikanischen Jazz bis hin zur Bachschen Kontrapunktik; und schließlich mussten beide im Jahr 1940 vor den Deutschen aus Frankreich in Richtung USA fliehen - Milhaud als Jude, Martinů als patriotischer Exiltscheche.

Das Gesamtwerk der beiden Komponisten für Streichtrio, das hier erstmals gegenübergestellt wird, besitzt manche Ähnlichkeiten - obwohl jedes Werk die Handschrift seines Komponisten trägt und Martinůs Trios schon in Paris entstanden sind, während Milhaud seine beiden Trios in Amerika schrieb. Ein spielerischer, musikantischer Ton prägt die Werke genauso wie der Charme der mediterranen bzw. tschechischen Volksweisen. Aber es gibt auch das, was Milhaud als „Disziplin" in der Kammermusik schätzte: strenge Kontrapunktik und handwerkliche Kunststücke - radikal angewandt, ohne in trockene Pedanterie zu geraten.

Es sind vier Wunderwerke intimen Musizierens, die das „Jacques Thibaud Trio" mit dem ihm eigenen Spürsinn und Geschmack zusammengestellt hat.

Jacques Thibaud String Trio




Jacques Thibaud String Trio
Burkhard Maiß, Bogdan Jianu and Andrei Banciu have been playing together since 2002 when Andrei Banciu started concertizing with the Jacques Thibaud String Trio.

After playing the piano quartet repertory together for so many years it seemed to be natural to concertize as a piano trio and spend more time with the great trios by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn and many others, combining them in their programms with string trios and piano quartets.

The founders of the ensemble Burkhard Maiß, Bogdan Jianu and Andrei Banciu have all established their reputations through successful performances throughout Europe, Asia, Scandinavia, South America, the United States and Canada. They could be heard in such famous venues as the Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw, the Mozarteum, Maison de Radio France and the Berlin Philharmonie.

As inspiration, the musicians have chosen the name of the French violinist Jacques Thibaud, who, beside his career as soloist was a world-famous chamber musician who next to traditional works, premiered many new and unknown compositions. He performed, for example, the now famous works of Debussy and Szymanovsky, working closely together with the composers.

Prize-winners in the prestigious 1999 Bonn Chamber Music Competition, the Jacques Thibaud String Trio was founded at the Berlin School of Art in 1994. Since then, the ensemble has performed throughout Europe, Japan and North America, receiving tremendous acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

Calling their playing “spontaneous and commanding,” the New York Times said, “this could be the first string trio in some time to have a major career.”

In December 2005, the trio gave five performances in San Francisco and other west coast cities of Mozart's rare, unfinished Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola, Cello and Orchestra with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra.

With their charm, youthful exuberance and astounding virtuosity, the Trio has delighted audiences of all ages in large and small venues. In the U.S., they have appeared at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, New York City’s Frick Collection (twice), Washington DC’s National Gallery, hundreds of other venues including Stanford University, the Caramoor Festival, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and cities including Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, San Diego, Milwaukee, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Memphis, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Tucson, Salt Lake City and Honolulu. As Ensemble-in-Residence at the 2001 Florida International Festival, they drew an audience of over two thousand to their final concert. They have also given successful residencies in a settings ranging from conservatories to music camps to an Indian reservation in Arizona.

Internationally, the Trio has appeared at London’s Wigmore Hall, throughout Germany, in major Japanese cities on several tours, and at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals including Belgium’s Musica Mundi, Gidon Kremer’s Echternach Festival in Luxembourg, and Denmark’s Roskilde Schubert Festival.

In 2009 they played a gala –concert for the German embassy in Paris at Palais Beauharnais in Paris.

Recent performances included concerts in Germany (Berlin) , Belgium and Netherlands (Amsterdam.)

The trio consists of Burkhard Maiss, Hannah Strijbos and Bogdan Jianu.
