Amael Piano Trio in Belgrade: Kolarac Podium of Chamber Music

Monday, October 25, 2010)  ‚Äì  Concert Review: Amael Piano Trio in Belgrade

Radio Belgrade:

Amael PianoTrio, which had yesterday, 24 October debut in front of the Belgrade audience in the great Kolarac Hall, established eleven years ago the top three Slovenian artists, the pianist Tatiana Ognjanovic, violinist Volodja Balzalorsky and the cellist Damier Hamidullin.

The ensemble of enviable international reputation, for its debut in Belgrade selected works by Skerjanc, Schubert and Beethoven.

All three artists of this trio are prominent soloists, which was seen immediately at the beginning of the concert: luxurious, cultivated color of tone, and the technical mastery of each individual.

Their input total permeation in the joint performance of the music, presented as early as the first part of the program, the composition “Maestoso lugubre” by Lucijan Maria Skerjanc.

Oppressed by the tragedy of this score, which requires balancing of pathos and restraint, was realized through a saturated, dark sound range, and deep sound conformation, which occurs only as a result of common breathing.

Great opportunity for Belgrade fans of chamber music, in this manner to experience Slovenian work by L.M. Skerjanc: in a top, inspired performance of the trio Amael.

Trio in E Flat Major by Franz Schubert, like some kind of musical portrait of the harp, made a completely different kind of challenge: to create a transparent atmosphere, that seems to arise from nothing, from the flicker of air, which is only at moments condensed into clearly defined contours sound. Playing in some parts of the composition on the very threshold of hearing, members of the trio Amael here demonstrated exceptional subtlety of mutual listening, like the kind of prompt with silence.

After these two compositions with completely different sides of musical expression, Amael Trio rounded the concert with interpretation of technical and interpretative challenging Piano Trio opus 97 in B – Major Ludwig van Beethoven. This classic chamber music literature by the author himself considered it one of his best works, is one of the few in its genre in which all three of the performers set equally high demands.

After only a brief introduction of the first paragraph, in which, after performing a solo piano, imperceptibly interfere section violin and cello, it was clear from how much restraint, lyricism and, why not, the nobility, the trio Ognjanovic – Balzalorsky – Hamidulin interpret Beethoven’s music. This is precisely the reason that ARS SONORO today round up their interpretation of the final part of the first paragraph of this trio.

The concert of Amael Piano Trio shall remain reasonably be remembered as a great artistic event of valuable guest artists from Slovenia.
