A dynamic mix of three virtuosic soloists in their own right, The Yargo Trio is delighted to present their debut release- Voices, Reimagined- featuring the repertoire that first brought them together in 2015. Their instantaneous musical and personal chemistry left no doubt that a new ensemble was born. Works by Koechlin and Peterson are performed with the original instrumentation. In the remaining works on the album, the flute assumes the role of the voice in the Schubert songs, the saxophone the second flute in the Doppler, and the role of the voice in the Faure and Strauss songs.
The trio relies upon their collective imaginations and wide breadth of performance experience when choosing repertoire that can work for this unusual instrumentation. Their creative recital programs showcase the trio in various coloristic combinations that allow them to shine as soloists as well as a charismatic ensemble. Writing in 1910, the great Italian composer, pianist, and author Ferruccio Busoni endorsed the concept of transcription. He maintained that the moment composers transferred ideas from their imaginations to musical notation, a transcription had already taken place. He also believed that because every performance of a piece differed slightly from the previous performance, each new rendering was a transcription. This spirit is the foundation of The Yargo Trio.
