Orpheus – Hommage à Saint-Saëns

Camille Saint-Saëns - Piano Trio n°2 in e minor, Op. 92
Jean-Philippe Rameau - Pièces de clavecin en concerts (arr. C. Saint-Saëns)
Franz Liszt - Orpheus, S.98 (arr. C. Saint-Saëns)

"To mark Saint-Saëns Year, Trio Zadig invites us to admire two essential facets of his art: composition and transcription. Pieces arranged for piano trio – Rameau’s Pièces de clavecin en concerts 1 and 5 and Liszt’s Orpheus – frame Saint-Saëns’s own Trio No. 2 op. 92. This programme gives us the impression of travelling through time and space, between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, between Hungary and France... It is a chance to discover or rediscover the compositional skills, sense of form and dialogue, thematic inventiveness and rich harmonies of Saint-Saëns. True to its penchant for seldom-frequented repertory, Trio Zadig, imitating the Voltairean hero from whom it takes its name, continues its adventure in the world of chamber music."
