Trio Brillante

Mozart Trio in E flat major, K. 498, ‘KegelstattJean Françaix Trio (1990)Brahms Trio in E flat major, Op. 40Trio Brillante gave its first performance in 2009 at Holy Names University, where Woo and Rose are members of the music faculty. Because of their unusual instrumental combination, they are able to explore less-performed repertoire by major composers, as well as transcriptions that can highlight the unique quality of such instrumentation. On June 15, 2010 Trio Brillante gave its debut performance in San Francisco, at Noontime Concerts. The concert was reviewed by San Francisco Classical Examiner, in which the reviewer remarked that the performance of the Kegelstatt Trio of Mozart was “an absolute delight”. The reviewer gave the groups performance a rating of 4 stars of possible 5. An audience member at their September 2010 concert at Berkeley Chamber Performances wrote, “Wonderful music played by a superb trio. Loved it, especially since one does not often get the chance to hear a trio composed of viola, clarinet and piano”.
