Trio Debussy

Antonio Valentino, piano

«Dotati di indubbia proprietà stilistica e tecnica», i componenti del Trio Debussy, «padroneggiano una tecnica stupefacente e si muovono tra Schubert, Haydn e Schumann con una proprietà stilistica assoluta». (“La Repubblica”).

Winning the prestigious “Premio Trio di Trieste” award in 1997 was the first milestone in a long and outstanding concert career, during which they have performed for the most important concert associations in Italy and internationally: these include Amici della Musica Firenze, Unione Musicale Torino, Società del quartetto di Milano, Mito - Settembre Musica, Amici della Musica Palermo, Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein (Beethoven triple Concerto), Santa Cecilia Hall in the new Auditorium in Roma (accompanied by the Santa Cecilia Orchestra in the triple Concerto for trio and orchestra by G.F.Ghedini), Coliseum in Buenos Aires, Scarlatti in Naples, Associazione Chigiana in Siena, Societad Filarmonica de Valencia, Palazzo del Quirinale in Roma (live broadcast), as well as many others. 

In 2003 the trio founded the “Tra Futuro & Passato” Festival, with the aim of encouraging the composition of new music for piano trio. Working with the Unione Musicale for over twenty years, they have helped to develop many interesting projects.

Since 2010/2011 Trio Debussy have been mentors at the Atelier Giovani project, and, together with the young musicians involved in the project, have performed the entire repertoire for chamber music by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms.

In the 2012/2013 season they began working on a project exploring the chamber music of France between the 19th and 20th centuries, rediscovering forgotten compositions. These years have also seen them experimenting with contaminations and collaborations with artists from other genres of music. One of these experiences resulted in the release of a CD where they perform with the Gypsy Jazz group “Manomanuches”.

The last CD released by the trio contained two of the greatest masterpieces in the repertoire for piano trio: Schubert op.100 (complete) and Ravel’s trio.
