TrioConBrio

TrioConBrio

Sometimes called “the world’s smallest orchestra”, TrioConBrio, with its unusual line-up of instruments, offers spirit, wit, charm and passion to match its name – as reviewers have often observed. Comprising Andrea Förderreuther, the guitarist who founded the ensemble in 1990, flautist Christina Singer und viola player Lydia Bach, TrioConBrio enjoys a long-established reputation for close musical teamwork and continually fresh inspiration. TrioConBrio’s adventurous approach to repertoire elicits enthusiastic responses and unconditional praise. Renowned composers such as Léo Brouwer, Sérgio Assad, Egberto Gismonti, Sidney Corbett and many others have written works for the group, while its members make their own dazzling arrangements of standard scores and rediscover lost and forgotten works from the 18th and 19th centuries. 

With regular concert tours (Austria, France, Italy, Finland, USA), invitations from major festivals and numerous radio and TV appearances, TrioConBrio is recognised as an ensemble of international stature. A series of five CDs, featuring many works recorded for the first time, has documented the diversity of its talents and interests. The three players have also toured Syria, Oman and the United Arab Emirates at the invitation of the German Foreign Office, appeared in Canada as cultural ambassadors for the state of Baden-Württemberg, and has received funding from the Villa Musica, Rheinland-Pfalz, the Cultural Ministry of Baden-Württemberg and the Sponsors' Association of German Sciences. The media have praised the "artistic perfection", "impressive virtuosity" and "thrilling radiance" of these “three exceptional artists”, appreciating their "more than customary readiness to break with convention" and their ability to offer “a sumptuous listening experience that is food for the soul” through "an orchestral density of sound".
