About the Zodiac Trio
Over the past decade, the Zodiac Trio has established itself as the leading international trio of its kind, heralded by Radio France as “A breathtaking ensemble of virtuosity and sensitivity.” Taking advantage of its unusual instrumentation of clarinet, violin and piano, the Zodiac Trio has been on the forefront of innovative programming, presenting 20th century masterpieces alongside new works and acclaimed original arrangements, offering the listener an immersive, musical journey.
Au cours des dix dernières années, le Trio Zodiac s’est révélé comme étant le premier trio international de ce genre, présenté par Radio France comme « un ensemble d’une virtuosité et d’une sensibilité à vous couper le souffle ». Tirant parti d’une composition instrumentale originale : clarinette, violon, piano, le Trio Zodiac a été à la pointe d’une programmation innovante, présentant des chefs- d’œuvre du XX° siècle aux cotés de nouvelles œuvres et d’arrangements originaux, offrant à l’auditeur un voyage musical somptueux.
