The Poulenc Trio brings together three uniquely gifted virtuosos, oboist Vladimir Lande, bassoonist Bryan Young, and pianist Irina Lande.
Combining brilliant 21st-century vibrancy with the best of European instrumental tradition, the trio’s performances leap beyond the ordinary concert experience, transporting audiences into a world of beautiful sonorities, playful rhythms and dramatic excitement.
As the best of a select few professional wind trios, the Poulenc Trio is committed to expanding the repertoire through the rediscovery of old masterpieces and the commissioning of new works.
The trio will be presenting a full evening’s program at Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
With over 30 concerts scheduled in the 2006-2007 season, Kauai Concert Association welcomes these world-renowned artists and is thrilled to be one stop in the Poulenc Trio’s most ambitious season ever.
Highlights include appearances in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore with the Jacques Thibaud String Trio from Germany, performances with clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein (formerly of Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center) and the National Gallery Chamber Players from Washington, D.C., and concerts across the U.S., including California, Florida, Hawai‘i, Louisiana, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia.
The trio was recently featured at Italy’s Ravello Festival, where they premiered two new compositions written especially for the group by Italian composer Gaetano Panariello and Russian-American composer Igor Raykhelson.
These works add to the Trio’s growing catalog of commissions, which include two works premiered in 2004 with violinist Hilary Hahn and a new Triple Concerto with orchestra, to be premiered during the 2006-2007 season.
