Beethoven Variation Project

BVP_Original

As part of the ensemble’s deep commitment to performing the music of living composers, Trio Céleste is thrilled to announce a revolutionary collaborative project that bridges the gap between new and old: Constellations: Variations on a Theme by Beethoven.

Trio Céleste has invited ten renowned composers to each create a variation based on the opening theme of the Largo movement of Beethoven’s virtuosic Piano Trio in G Major, Op. 1, No. 2, a work that the ensemble will also be including on their debut album along with Dvorak’s “Dumky” Trio.

This exciting collaborative project will feature commissions from some of today’s most important composers including Samuel Adler and Pierre Jalbert, and was recorded in July 2015 at Soka Performing Arts Center.
