Trio Hochelaga performs in Prince Rupert

The Montreal-based classical threesome Trio Hochelaga performed an intimate concert at the Lester Centre of the Arts on Friday.

The Montreal-based classical threesome Trio Hochelaga performed an intimate concert at the Lester Centre of the Arts on Friday, November 18, presented by the Prince Rupert Concert Society, as part of the trio’s “Angels and Demons” 2011/2012-concert tour.

Trio Hochelaga is made up of pianist Stéphane Lemelin who is a winner of many national and international prizes and awards including a prize at the Robert Casadesus International competition, violinist Anne Robert, the First Violin with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra for the past twelve years, and cellist Paul Marleyn who is a Professor of Cello at the University of Ottawa. The three have been playing music from the classical period and current period together since 2000.

On Friday, Trio Hochelaga started the evening off by performing “Trio Élégiaque No. 1 in G Minor” by Russian composer, pianist and conductor, Sergi Vasilievich Rachmanioff, a composer the trio thinks of as “one of the great Romantic masters”.

The three then performed Beethoven’s “Piano Trio No. 5 in D Major”, dubbed “Ghost” because of its eerie qualities of slow movement. This piece, published in 1809, starts off with an explosion of unison instrument playing in the opening movement before concluding with a surprise interjection of the same theme. The third movement rounds off the piece with musical warmth.

Trio Hochelaga’s final piece of the performance was “Piano Trio in B Flat Major, D898” by Austrian composer Franz Peter Schubert. In this piece Roberts and Marleyn’s string playing come together as a duet magnificently, with Lemelin’s piano playing soaring at times.

The Prince Rupert Concert Society will be presenting Jill Barber, who on Thursday at 8 p.m.
