Concertserie The Women's Musical Club of Toronto
"The Women's Musical Club of Toronto started off its 112th season of five Thursday afternoon concerts with a kick. Here was a stirring musical example of good things coming in threes: Holland's Storioni Trio – violinist Wouter Vossen, brother Marc on cello and Bart van de Roer at the piano – interpreting three great works of the chamber music repertoire.
They started with a crisply articulated rendition of the G Major Piano Trio No. 6 (KV. 564) by Mozart... drawing clear lines from instrument to instrument in elegant arcs.
The Op. 70 "Ghost" Trio by Beethoven, which came along 18 years later, is a study in contrasting moods. Here, the Dutch musicians focused on depth rather than on highlighting the technical challenges in the music. The lugubrious second movement was a highlight, as the trio slowly drew out small rays of sunshine from the shadows. They did it with such deliberation that, at times, the music, and time, stood still in the recital hall.
The performance at the University of Toronto's Walter Hall closed with the wafts and waves of Maurice Ravel's voluptuous A minor Piano Trio, which....was magical.
The Women's Musical Club, whose concerts are usually sold out in advance, has a long history of picking up great talents in chamber music that Torontonians may not have heard before. Thursday's outing was a prime example...the Storioni Trio, named after Wouter Vossen's priceless 1794 violin, runs a chamber music festival at home and champions new music. It would be great to have them back in town sometime soon so we can appreciate even more of their wide-ranging talents."
