about this recording:
Since 1998 Trio plus has created interesting programs by adding further instruments to the classical string trio. In this way, colorful ensemble combinations emerge, which until now have not existed as regular formations. Besides numerous concerts in Germany, TRIO PLUS OBOE has presented itself on a tour of Italy. Programs such as TRIO PLUS FLUTE and TRIO PLUS GUITAR were subsequently added. TRIO PLUS also appears as a pure string trio.
TRIO PLUS is meanwhile to be heard on recordings made by the Bavarian Radio and on CDs issued by Cavalli Records, together with piano and percussion ensemble, and now with the oboist Barbara Bode.
