Genius is the watchword in a meeting between Renaud Capuçon, Lahav Shani and Kian Soltani.
Shani is a 29-year-old pianist and conductor that can go from conducting a Mahler symphony to performing a piano concerto.
Soltani, a cellist, captivated the audience of Génération@ Aix and critics praise “his disarming stage presence, with a blend of great intensity and vulnerable intimacy” (Südwest Presse).
Their sensibility is a perfect match for Dvorak's Piano trio n° 3, a piece that serenely evokes the popular music of Bohemia. Tchaikovsky's Piano trio is dedicated to the memory of the pianist Nicolas Rubinstein and each of the variations on a theme in the form of an orthodox chant is in a different genre, to reflect the facets of his personality.
