Info zu Jeux de Couleurs

Trio Khaldei always tries to break the boundaries of the pure trio repertoire and has a penchant for arrangements of works from the great symphonic repertoire.

Sally Beamish's arrangement of Debussy's La Mer is an excellent example. Her reorchestration is not a bland copy of the original but a perfect adaptation of Debussy's work to the piano trio's scoring. Over-familiar music reduced to its pure essence: clenched, colourful, intimate.

Maurice Ravel wrote his magisterial piano trio in 1914 and finished it in record time because he had been called up to the front. Drawing inspiration from Basque rhythms, a Malay poetry form and seeking out the extremes of each instrument made for an unparalleled, innovative masterpiece.

Trio Khaldei is a champion of Belgian music and, alongside the two French icons, is programming a kindred spirit from right here with us: Frits Celis. His Trio op. 5 from 1958 is characterised by a strong rhythmic drive, a clear sense of structure but, above all, a beautiful, extensive colour palette.

The Khaldei Trio
brings together Barbara Baltussen (piano), Pieter Jansen (violin) and Francis Mourey (cello), three musicians with a passion for chamber music and, more specifically, the unique sonority of the piano trio.

Since its first concert in 2011, the Khaldei Trio has developed from a young, promising ensemble to a crowd favourite on Belgium’s biggest stages. In 2013, the trio was one of the six ensembles nominated for the first edition of the Supernova competition. Over the last few years, the trio has performed in many cultural centres throughout the country, in prestigious venues such as the Centre for Fine Arts (Brussels), AMUZ (Antwerp), De Bijloke (Ghent) and the Concertgebouw in Bruges, as well as at numerous festivals in Belgium and abroad, including the Ghent Festival of Flanders, Festival 20/21, En Avant Mars, the Spectrum Festival (Slovenia) and the Arsana Festival (Slovenia). The trio has also recorded for Belgian stations Canvas (television) and Klara (radio) and the Slovenian National Radio.

The Khaldei Trio has a particular affinity for Russian music from the first half of the 20th Century, especially music by Shostakovich. The trio’s namesake, Evgueni Khaldei, was official photographer of the Stalin regime, and created striking portraits of all the great Russian artists of the time. The search for truth, authenticity and the nuances brought by this photographer to difficult moments throughout his life are a great source of inspiration for the trio.

The Khaldei Trio likes to bring together music from times past and present in its programs, introducing the public to music by lesser-known composers as well as the great masters. The program Debuts offers trios by Gaspar Cassadó and Gillis Sacré together with Shostakovich and Sibelius. In the program WWI, Debussy’s sonatas and Ravel’s masterly trio accompany a magnificent trio by Enesco.

Belgian music also occupies a special place in the Khaldei Trio’s repertoire. Works by Jongen, Celis, Van Landeghem and Brewaeys are to be found on the trio’s music stands. In March 2015, as part of the two concerts that the trio gave during the En Avant Mars festival in Bijloke (Ghent), the trio played an entirely Belgian program, in which works by Buckinckx and Swerts featured alongside premières of works by Ruben De Gheselle, Mirek Coutigny and Gillis Sacré.
