St. Petersburg - Vienna - Paris
The Trio Vitruvi became internationally known in co-productions with the dance company "Kammerballetten", with which it recently performed in Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie. How much tension the three gentlemen from Copenhagen are able to create even without scenic embedding, they can now show with Ravel and especially with Shostakovich. If one needed proof of the latter's genius as a narrator in tones, then the 16-year-old's one-movement trio would have to be mentioned. Elegant melos, blazing intensity, dramatic climaxes: The Danes' little "European Tour" stops off at some of the most exciting highlights of the repertoire. Meditative tranquility, on the other hand, prevails in the work of Pēteris Vasks. "Plainscapes," composed initially as a choral work in 2002 and later reworked into a trio, is the Latvian's atmospheric exploration of the flat horizons of his homeland.

The "plus" in the concert: in a 7-minute discussion excursus, characteristic, sometimes curious aspects of the program are singled out or exciting phenomena are highlighted in the context of the works.
