Celebrating 25 years of activity in 2014, the Trio Debussy is one of the most outstanding Italian chamber groups. Critics have hailed Trio members as “musicians who have an interpretative prominence from bygone days, in their hearts, minds and hands”.
They learnt the “art of trio” with the Trio di Trieste and the Altenberg Trio Wien, and graduated with honours. Since winning First Prize in the International Chamber Music Competition “Premio Trio di Trieste”, the Trio Debussy has since appeared in some of the most prestigious venues in their homeland, Europe and South America. Concerts with orchestras have included performances of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto at the Musikverein in Vienna, and Ghedini’s Concerto “dell’albatro” with the Santa Cecilia Orchestra in Rome, conducted by Jeffrey Tate.
The Trio Debussy performs regularly at festivals and in all the major concert seasons. Its repertoire includes more than 170 works. The Trio is a keen supporter of contemporary music and also of unconventional repertoire and world music and this is indicated by the fact that 50 of these works have been especially commissioned and premiered by the Trio. As a result of their residency at the Unione Musicale in Turin, the Trio Debussy was asked in 2010 to run a project called “Atelier Giovani” where they are mentoring young musicians and ensembles at the beginning of their careers. In 2012–13 the Trio Debussy embarked on a new project of French 19th–20th–century music. Highlights for the 2013–14 season are the MITO Festival and the complete Brahms Trios in Trieste.
The Trio Debussy has recently recorded a CD entitled “Masterpieces vol. 1”, and includes Schubert’s Op. 100 and Ravel’s Trio in A. Besides their concert activity, the Trio Debussy holds teaching posts at the Accademia di Musica di Pinerolo.
