HOMMAGE A SAINT-SAENS
NEW ALBUM - SEPTEMBER 2021
The Zadig Trio marks the centenary of Camille Saint-Saëns’s death with an exploration of two particular facets of his work: Saint-Saëns was not only a composer in his own right but was also a learned transcriber and arranger of other composers’ music. Saint-Saëns’ arrangements of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Pièces de clavecin en concerts 1 and 5 and Franz Liszt’s Orpheus here frame his own Trio for piano, violin and cello in E minor op. 92.
“Extraordinarily gifted instrumentalists and, at the same time, truly searching musicians”
The Zadig Trio came together when two childhood friends from France, Boris Borgolotto and Marc Girard Garcia, met American pianist, Ian Barber. Already, they have been awarded 11 international prizes at international competitions in France, Italy, Austria and USA. With depth and passion they play a repertoire that goes from Haydn to contemporary composers.
The Zadig Trio is laureate of the Banque Populaire Foundation.
