Inaugurating its "Family Business" series, Trio Khaldei dedicates some programs in the following seasons to a few families of musicians, starting with Robert and Clara Schumann. They shared years of love and pain, exercised reciprocal influence and were for one another a never ending source of inspiration.
This innovative programme is built around one of the masterpieces of the chamber music genre: Maurice Ravel’s Trio. Trio Khaldei is always searching for imaginative programmes in which well-known works appear alongside their lesser-known counterparts. In addition to this trio, they offer the magnificent music of Belgian composers Frits Celis and Joseph Jongen.

The Trio’s name reflects its particular attraction for Russian culture; a concert containing exclusively Russian works was therefore a must in its programming.

Vienna: the epicentre of three centuries of European music history. This programme offers three works illustrating the soul of this city over time, by three great composers that were born or lived in Vienna: Mozart, Brahms and Schönberg.
In the “Apocalypse” programme, Trio Khaldei interprets two of the all-time masterpieces of the 20th Century. The atmosphere created is spellbinding, and while it evokes the end of the world, it also suggests hope and a longing for a new and better world.
