Trio Artio Concert at the Classix Festival (Iași) - March 13th, 2021, 7PM

An interpretative tumult of an impressive musical refinement. Having a dynamic, original and contemporary vision of the classical works they interpret, Trio Artio is one of the most prominent young ensembles on the Austrian musical stage. The brave repertoire choices of the Austrian violinist Judith Fliedl, German cellist Christine Roider and Austrian pianist Johanna Estermann have represented strong arguments in the Trio Artio's selection within the strict promotion programme of the young musical talents NASOM - New Austrian Sound of Music - of the Austrian Ministry for European and International Affairs for the 2020/2021 period.

For its first meeting with the Romanian public, Trio Artio is one of the special guests of the Iași Classix Festival's second edition, a musical event that is becoming a mark in Eastern Europe, and which the Bucharest Austrian Cultural Forum is proud to support since its establishment. For the "Kaleidoscopic Trends" concert, which will take place on Monday, March 15th, 7PM, in the Auditorium of the "Mihai Eminescu" Central University Library in Iași, the ensemble prepared works that are different from a harmonic point of view, but which are surprisingly complementary otherwise. There will be: Trio in B flat major, Op. 11, "Gassenhauer" by Ludwig van Beethoven, "Fragments I" for violin, cello and piano (2019) by Kurt Estermann and Trio no. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 "Dumky" by Antonin Dvoűák.

The concert will be live on the Facebook pages of Classix Festival, The Austrian Cultural Forum and of mthe event partners. The access is free.

Trio Artio Concert dedicated to the International Women's Rights Day and Month - March 17th, 2021, 6PM.

Trio Artio is a symbol for women's assertion within the European environment of classical instrumental music, which is often dominated by men. Apart from their artistic activity, the three women musicians of the ensemble are involved in different actions and events that concern equal opportunities between women and men. This year, Trio Artio is the image of the #womentothetop cultural campaign, promoted by the Austrian Ministry for European and International Affairs on the occasion of the International Women's Rights Day and Month.

On this occasion, the Bucharest Austrian Cultural Forum is offering a second concert by Trio Artio exclusively, on March 27th, between 6PM-12AM on its website. The programme consists of "Trio for violin, cello, and piano Op. 17 in G Minor" (3. Andante - più animato) by Clara Schumann; "Trio for violin, cello and piano Op. 66 in C Minor" (Allegro energico e con fuoco) by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy; "Postscriptum" (2008) by Lera Auerbach.
