Allégresse - Woodwind Trio: flute, oboe and piano
Allégresse, the French word for "joy," aptly depicts the graceful, artistry of this inspiring new trio. Allégresse combines the virtuosic talents of three nationally recognized musicians with careers that have taken them throughout North, South and Central America, Europe and Asia both as soloists and chamber musicians. Friends and collaborators for nearly a decade, Annie, Margaret and Ellen formed this exciting ensemble to explore the rich and varied repertoire for flute, oboe and piano. The trio plays a wide range of music of the classical masters, including Quantz, Telemann, W. F. Bach and Rossini, and the contemporary works of Frank Martin, Madeleine Dring, Thea Musgrave, Jean-Michel Damase and William Grant Still. Driven by a strong commitment and a deep passion for their craft, Allégresse infuses every performance with expression, sincerity and a unique, interpretive elegance.
