Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this CD, the Trio Artemis contrasts the old and new. First, there is the famous "Dumky trio" of Antonin Dvorak , a highly appealing, melodious work based on Slavic folk tunes. Secondly, composed in the year 2000, the Piano Trio titled "The Second Attention" of the Swiss composer from Winterthur, Alfred Felder. The piece evokes Shamanic drums and ambient sounds like something from another world. - Trio Artemis

The history of Trio Artemis is a success story: Born is 1995 as a collaboration between Katja Hess (violin), Bettina makers (cello) and Myriam Ruesch (piano), and alternating with Felicitas Strack (piano). The four musicians enrich the ever-growing repertoire with works from the classical
Read more trio literature plus a mix of exciting as well as relaxing music from the world of Tango Nuevo and the salon. The trio has also explored folk music of different countries. Themes from opera, musicals and film music set in creative and original arrangements by these diploma students of chamber music (Zurich University of the Arts, College of Music Karlsruhe).

The acclaimed Swiss radio show "Nightclub in Two" (Radio SRF 2) chose the recording titled "Four Seasons" by Astor Piazzolla, performed by the Trio Artemis, for excellent sound quality and exceptional harmony of interpretation. With the Swiss classical music label "Gallo" the trio has recorded five albums. Another CD, was realized during one of three tours Japan (Osaka, Yokohama, Tokyo). Thus, they not only extended the horizon of their stage experiences between East and West (including the USA and Argentina,) but also symbolize the desire for the growth and development of their musical passion. Europe, however, is the main home of the Trio Artemis, with concerts in Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Spain and of course Switzerland. A rich geographical and cultural strand of concerts, radio and television appearances. - Roland Harders (translated from German) Read less
