um das Erbe des legendären

Boulanger Trio saves contemporary music

“Violinist Birgit Erz, cellist Ilona Kindt and pianist Karla Haltenwanger are masters of a slender but sometimes merciless exaggeration. There fits no razor blade between the sharp unisono beats, and the expressive characters of Staud are extremely elaborate.”
Mannheimer Morgen

Tomorrow in Hamm

We were asked in the short term to play tomorrow in Hamm, instead of colleagues who had to cancel due to illness. It is a great program with works by Fanny Hensel, her brother Felix Mendelssohn and Lili Boulanger.

Schwäbische Zeitung

The commitment of the sisters [Nadia and Lili Boulanger] to the new and the more unknown music is inspiration and role model for the Trio Boulanger, founded ten years ago in Hamburg. This was demonstrated by the program, because an evening where three of four pieces rarely appear in our concert life and are presented with heart blood and passion is rare. The audience in the Festsaal Weißenau thanked the trio with concentration and enthusiasm. That evening violinist Birgit Erz, cellist Ilona Kindt and pianist Karla Haltenwanger played works by Johannes Brahms, Ernest Bloch, Edvard Grieg and Max Reger: It was a bath in the romantic sound, which the musicians however made transparent with great diversity and nuances.

Young people get the opportunity to meet famous artists in person and have insight to their lives, their experiences and personal development. The musicians can reach the children through their own passionate commitment to set their own goals and course in life.

THE OSTESEE-ZEITUNG ABOUT OUR CONCERT AT USEDOM MUSIC FESTIVAL

“Here the Boulanger Trio sounded audibly “at home”: spirited and highly energetic with that characteristic of overpowering directness so distinct in Sibelius and Kuula’s music. (…) An encore (Arvo Pärt: Mozart) and much applause – an illuminating evening.”

Ekkehard Ochs, Ostsee Zeitung, September 2015
