    Event description

    It was once said that Ravel picked up the first tune of his Piano Trio while watching ice-cream vendors dancing a fandango in the Basque border town of Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Whatever the origins, Ravel embraced this Basque connection as he worked feverishly on the piece throughout the summer of 1914. For a true Spaniard such as Turina, all of the many and varied sounds of Spain provided inspiration. In his Trio he forged a series of variations, each based on the musical footprint of a Spanish region.

    At home in classic Parisian elegance, Julien, Louis and Paloma begin with the clearly chiselled melodic lines that are Sains-Saëns’ trademark.

    Witness the consummate skill of this leading French ensemble on their first tour down under: the acclaimed Trio Karénine.
