ArmoniEnsemble Guitar TRIO
The Trio, whose name comes from the word Armonia, ancient word, which indicates peace, consonance, union of several entities, in music as in life, comes from the harmonious meeting of some musicians who have become Founding Members of the Musical Artistic Association ArmoniE in which common objectives and aims converge as the diffusion and expansion of the musical culture, choral and instrumental, as a vehicle for human and civil maturation and growth in the world of youth and beyond.
The concert performers, Palma di Gaetano flute, Giordano Muolo clarinet and Vincenzo Zecca guitar, come from classical studies and for years have devoted themselves to concert activity in the field of solo, chamber music and orchestral, with repertoires covering a time span ranging from XVI century to the present day and embracing different musical genres.
The evident musical understanding born in 2005, built and consolidated through constant and assiduous work, is manifested in the perfect dynamic balance and agogic synchronism of each performance: the presence of two wind instruments does not take away from the guitar sound moments of virtuosic technique and the guitar , in turn, harmoniously supports the dexterity and the vivacity of the flute or the technical mastery and the warm singing of the clarinet. In ArmoniEnsemble Trio, an unusual chamber group with a very pleasant timbre mix, the performers share the many and mature professional qualities proposing transcriptions of famous pieces taken from the classical-operatic repertoire in their concerts (because of the limited repertoire written for flute, clarinet and guitar) and original compositions of “very young” creation, some of which are specially written or revised for this formation. The main project of the Trio is therefore to “search” contemporary and original pieces also in order to spread the musical culture of our day and to deny the often wrong belief that the music written in the last decades does not preserve a “traditional” classical harmonic-melodic tonal structure.
The Ensemble has always received wide approval from the public and critics for its engaging and professional performances in the numerous concerts held on the territory of Puglia and Italy.
