”Only music is as high as the sea
A unique collaboration between three innovative and generous musicians, three friends and three stage lovers : Patricia Petibon, Christian-Pierre La Marca and Susan Manoff. An astonishing classical trio that combines vocal and instrumental music in an intimate and personal way.
Once you’ve heard the combination, few things are as captivating as the sound of a cello and voice together with a piano. It’s a gorgeous richness of vocal strings, mellow and soft, complemented by the distinct phrasing of the hammer and bow strokes. Here are three highly complementary instruments that give rise to an ever-changing imaginary sound.
Petibon, La Marca and Manoff all share a love of innovative programming, a curiosity for a wide range of repertoires and styles, and a commitment to new works for their respective instruments.
From baroque to chanson, passing through the Romantic repertoire and the current national schools, the three musicians take us on a whirling journey through space and time. Eastern European composers rub shoulders with those of the New World, and the music of the past meets the music of today.
Patricia’s multiple voices and Christian-Pierre and Susan’s fingers take us through centuries, eras and continents. They tell a story where the strings mingle with the breath to remind us that our world is as small as the musical legacy it carries…
