Engadin Festival: Trio Halevi-Thirion-Schultsz


Engadin Festival: Trio Halevi-Thirion-Schultsz

Chen Halevi, clarinet Claire Thirion, cello Jan Schultsz, piano

Brahms had actually decided to stop composing at the age of 57. But then he heard the clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld and couldn´t let it go. He was so impressed by his playing that he took up the pen again. In a very short time, he wrote several works for clarinet in different instrumentations. The first was the Clarinet Trio in A minor, op. 114.

The Trio Halevi-Thirion-Schultsz interprets Brahms on historical instruments. Chen Halevi, one of the most internationally renowned clarinet virtuosos, is one of the few in his field who plays his impressively large repertoire on authentic instruments from the period. Claire Thirion, the cellist of the Chiaroscuro Quartet, and Jan Schultsz are also proven specialists in historically informed performance practice. Jan Schultsz plays on a fortepiano built in 1871 by the Streicher workshop in Vienna. Brahms had exactly such a grand piano at home.
