Loyola press release - March 22, 2001

(New Orleans)óLoyola University New Orleans College of Music presents French chamber music ensemble Trio Wanderer. The concert is set for Wednesday, April 4th at 7:30 p.m. in Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall located in the Music/Communications Complex at the corner of Calhoun Street and St. Charles Avenue.

The concert will feature Le Baron's Devil in the Belfry; Chausson's Trio, Op 3; and Schubert's Trio, Op 100.

Formed in 1987, Trio Wanderer is composed of three young French musicians, pianist Vincent Coq, violinist Jean-Marc Phillips-Barjabťdian, and cellist RaphaŽl Pidoux. Due to their affinity for the German repertoire, they selected the name 'Wanderer"-the errant traveler, the favorite theme of the German romantic school. The trio has earned a reputation for its virtuosic performances and highly sensitive musical interpretation. Laureates of the Paris Conservatory, they completed their education in the United States, winning awards in prestigious international competitions (Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and ARD Competition in Munich).

Trio Wanderer has toured throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, South and North America, and has appeared at many major venues and festivals, such as Thť‚tre des Champs Elysťes in Paris, The Philharmonic Hall in Berlin, the Wigmore Hall in London, and the Colmar International Music Festival.

The trio 1996 compact disc, DvorŠk~Smetana, was awarded the prize for "best chamber music recording of the year" in the Victoires de la musique 1997.
