Concert Trio Energico
Those who fear that classical music is boring and corny urgently need to attend a concert by Trio Energico. With the energy and guts of a real rock band, Trio Energico turns classical music into a maelstrom of sounds and emotions. Violin, clarinet and piano compete with and against each other in the musical arena. The winner is undoubtedly the music, which is fresh, clear and compelling.
