A Trio Catch (D)

Even if Lachenmann’s Allegro Sostenuto is one of the most important chamber music pieces of the last half century, its musical ideas unique acoustic phenomenon are still waiting for many of us to explore. Beside this work Trio Catch selected three pieces written for the Trio by European composers.
To catch the audience: with a virtuosic dialogue between the very different timbres of the clarinet, cello, and piano; through the joy of making music together; through searching tirelessly for a shared sound. This is what makes Trio Catch stand out.
Boglárka Pecze (clarinet), Eva Boesch (cello) and Sun-Young Nam (piano) met during scholarships at the International Ensemble Modern Academy in Frankfurt, after which they formed Trio Catch, named after Catch by Thomas Adès, in which the clarinet is “caught” by a piano trio that plays a charming children’s round. Alongside performing classical music, the inter- pretation of contemporary music is one of the main focuses of the three young musicians. The Hamburg-based trio have worked with numerous composers throughout the six years of their collaboration, including Mark Andre, Georges Aperghis, Beat Furrer and Helmut Lachenmann, with whom they are also connected through various CD productions and radio recording projects. During the 2015/16 season Trio Catch performed at some of the greatest concert halls in Europe as part of the European Concert Halls Organisation’s Rising Stars series. The trio are also involved in music education. They have held a teaching post at the Musikhochschule Hamburg since the summer semester of 2014, where they run workshops for students of composition as the ensemble in resi- dence. They also taught the children’s composition workshop Louder at Klangspuren Schwaz. In 2016, Trio Catch initiated Ohrknacker, their own series of workshop concerts. Each concert presents a selected piece of contemporary music, written especially for the trio.
