Genre: Classical Artists

Schumann's 'Album fur das Jugend,' Op. 68, of 1848 appears to be a collection of simple teaching pieces for children. But it's unassuming exterior hides a wealth of interconnected references: to Bach and to William Blake (whose 'Songs of Innocence and Experience' it shadows), and to the life of the Romantic artist as reflected in nature and the passage of the seasons. Anssi Karttunen's transcription for string trio brings a textural subtlety that enhances the unsuspected layers of meaning in Schumann's modest miniatures. The Zebra Trio consists of the Austrian violinist Ernst Kovacic, Canadian violist Steven Dann and Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen, each bringing a vast experience in chamber music, in different styles and in working with living composers to the world of the string trio. The Zebra Trio has always mixed familiar masterpieces with new works and transcriptions, combining all of these in creative ways in the ir concerts.
