Artist DetailsRead bio
Kim Kashkashian, who won a Grammy last year with her solo viola Kurtág/Ligeti disc, returns with a new trio. Tre Voci includes Italian-American flutist Marina Piccinini and Israeli harpist Sivan Magen. All three musicians have been acknowledged for bringing a new voice to their instruments. Kashkashian, Piccinini and Magen first played together at the 2010 Marlboro Music Festival, and agreed that the potential of this combination was too great to limit it to a single season. Since then they have been developing their repertoire which, on this compelling first release it revolves around Debussy's 1915 "Sonata for flute, viola and harp" and its influence, most directly felt in Takemitsu's shimmering "And then I knew 'twas Wind".

Kashkashian, Magen & Piccinini: ?Tre Voci? / Boston Globe review
The three "voices" on this transfixingly beautiful recording - violist Kim Kashkashian, harpist Sivan Magen, and flutist Marina Piccinini - met at Marlboro Music in summer 2010, and their effortless interplay is typical of the musical rapport that festival often produces. The trio's unusual instrumentation made its debut in Debussy's mysteriously beautiful sonata, the middle work on this release,...
