Prisma String Trio - LIVESTREAM

CD release concert LA MUSE

Prisma String Trio has used the past year to implement a plan of epic proportions: the release on CD of Florent Schmitt's String Trio. No string trio has dared to put this stunning and spectacularly difficult piece on CD.

All over the world people were eagerly awaiting the release, and now it's there, LA MUSE is finished! Today we are going to present it and the Splendor audience can be the first in the world to witness the performance of the complete LA MUSE program.

Darius Milhaud - La Muse ménagère (The Household Muse) (1944)
Florent Schmitt - String Trio Op. 105 (1944)
This is a program with a very personal history. It starts with our choice for this music. We present to you two completely different works from 1944. One is turbulent and magnificent, the other intimate and poetic. The two composers could not be more different, and might be said to clash. And yet, we feel their works are a beautiful match and even reinforce each other. Was it inspiration, call it the Muse, that brought the two together? Florent Schmitt’s muse seems to be Music itself, leading him on in an explosion of compositional creativity. Darius Milhaud names his wife Madeleine as his muse and pours his gratitude into a musical tribute. Let Prisma be your muse now - and listen.
