    • Anne Robert, Brian Manker, Evelyne Brancart


      These three exceptional performers will create a rich musical presentation! During the “Trio for piano, violin, and cello, Op. 50” by Granados, the elegance of the melodic lines will blend with profound intimacy. From the same composer, “Andaluza” from the 12 Spanish Dances will reveal the playful and colorful aspect of Spanish music, with energetic rhythms and catchy folkloric motifs. Finally, the “Allegro de concierto, Op. 46”, will highlight the virtuosity of the performers, with its brilliant and dynamic passages, evoking the brilliance of Granados’ music. Let yourself be carried away by the power of Spanish melodies!

      The acclaimed musicians taking the stage are all precious partners of the Orford Music Academy.
