Poulenc Trio

Every classical music fan knows there's plenty of music that's brooding, gloomy, funereal. Ahhh, the French. This is the first movement of the Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano by 20th century French composer Jean Francaix. This jocular music is on the program for a visit to Ramsey Concert Hall Wednesday, October 25th at 7:30 p.m. by the Poulenc Trio. The Poulenc Trio is the most active touring piano-wind chamber music ensemble in the world. Since its formation in 2003, the group has performed in 45 U.S. states and at music festivals around the globe. Their appearance in Athens will include arrangements of songs by Duke Ellington and Francis Poulenc. It ends with a fantasy on themes from Semiramide, an opera by Rossini — without all those pesky sets, costumes and singers.
