CLASSICAL STRING TRIO
«I am the conflict, for the conflict is just this antagonism, which is not any indifference of the two as different, but is their being bound together. I am not one of those taking part in the strife, but I am both the combatants, and am the strife itself. I am the fire and the water which touch each other, and am the contact and union of what flies apart
G.W. F. Hegel»
What is a trio if not this: a continuous process of harmonizing primary elements. Far from the fraternal and supportive logic of the quartet, the string trio really is a clash of water, earth and fire in chamber music.
The dialectical vision, therefore, is a passage, a qualitative leap, a change, a continuous and infinite progress which the trio applies to the study and the pleasure of ever-new musical research.
The trio has performed on important occasions and in evocative places such: Sala Corelli of Dante Alighieri Theatre in Ravenna, Palazzo Albrizzi in Venice for the Dino Ciani Association, in Cremona in the Federico II Courtyard, at the Auditorium San Barnaba in Brescia for the GIA Association (Giovani Interpreti Associati), in Mantua for the Mantua Chamber Music Festival, at Concerts at the Shrine of St. Teresa of Riva (ME) for the Association of Friends of Music, in Padua for the Galilean Academy of Sciences, Arts and Literature and for the International Music Meeting 2016, in Brescia for Foundation Teatro Grande and in Milan at the Pirelli Skyscraper Auditorium Gaber for the Concert Society and at “Casa Verdi” for Società del Quartetto.
The collaboration with composer Mauro Montalbetti led them to the exclusive first performance of the piece "Six Bagatelles for String Trio" published by RAICOM, as well as the composition "E voi empi sospiri – Madrigal for String Trio" which was written for them, and they also performed live on Bergamo TV receiving acclaim from both public and critics.
The artistic growth of Trio Hegel is strongly connected to the Quartetto di Cremona and Antonello Farulli; also fundamental were the meetings with Luca Simoncini (Nuovo Quartetto Italiano), Jürgen Kussmaul (L'Archibudelli), Andrea Repetto (Quartetto di Torino), Christophe Giovaninetti (Quartetto Ysaÿe) and orchestra conductors Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli and Riccardo Muti.
The Hegel Trio was selected for the project ‘Le Dimore del Quartetto’.
The Hegel Trio has made a CD for the Tactus label of music by Tuscan composers Luigi Cherubini and Giuseppe Cambini (World Primiere Recording), an album exclusively dedicated to the compositions of Mauro Montalbetti for A Simple Lunch label and the complete string trios by Jean Sibelius and Max Reger for the Japanese label Da Vinci Classics. The review of Sibelius's 'Suite in A Major for string trio' by Trio Hegel has been published for Da Vinci Publishing.
