Trio-Alto

In 2006, when the Trio-Alto started its musical journey, composers from all over the world warmly welcome this new born contemporary music entity. Their enthusiasm was due to the unusual instrumental juxtaposition (viola, saxophone and piano), and also to the outstanding professional level of the three performers, Cornelia PETROIU, Daniel KIENTZY and Mihail  VIRTOSU, and their dedication to the avant-garde music.

The Trio-Alto was, at the very beginning of its concert activity, not only once, but twice Alto, by means of the interwoven voices of the viola (alto, in French) and of the alto saxophone. Later on, it was Daniel KIENTZY who decided to expand the sphere of the saxophones included in Trio-Alto algorithm.

The activity of the Trio-Alto is fully dedicated to the avant-garde contemporary music performing. The three artists have premiered over 50 musical works, all of them dedicate to them. More than half of these musical works have been specialized recorded, by Calin IOACHIMESCU, sound edited by Cornelia PETROIU and audio mixing by Daniel KIENTZY. In 2007 was launched the first audio CD of the Trio-Alto, which is called ”Résonances triangulaires”.

The repertoire of the Trio-Alto includes diverse orientations in the international contemporary music, thanks to composers from Romania, France, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Korea, Japan, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Italy, Austria, Denmark and the United States.

Their performing style, deprived of conventionalism, is enriched by means of a sensually deepened conception of the avant-garde music, beyond taboos.
