“Few can resist the seductive and expressive sound of the clarinet – but what an explosive, enchanting and fascinating sound three clarinets would make!” say the organisers of an upcoming concert that features three international musicians.
The Alessandro Carbonare Clarinet Trio will open the Pharos Arts Foundation’s Fall 2021 season on Saturday with a unique concert in the foundation’s open-air venue, The Olive Grove.
Led by the celebrated clarinettist Alessandro Carbonare – first clarinet of the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and legendary collaborator of Claudio Abbado – the Alessandro Carbonare Clarinet Trio has already created a unique music legacy. Along with clarinettists Luca Cipriano and Giuseppe Muscogiuri, Carbonare has delved into the rare and fascinating repertoire for three clarinets and basset horns, reaching over to works ranging from Mozart’s original Divertimenti through to Gershwin and Chick Corea, and Klezmer music.
The trio was created in 2016 and effortlessly explores an unusual yet highly stimulating repertoire. Having as a starting point Mozart’s original Divertimenti for three basset horns, the trio delves further into the master’s masonic music, to the rare 18th-century arrangements for three basset horns of arias from the Magic Flute or Don Giovanni, and Beethoven’s variations on Là ci darem la mano. The trio also reaches over to repertoire from contemporary music and jazz, as well as to the intense tunes of the traditional Klezmer music. After having already performed in numerous renowned festivals around the world, the Alessandro Carbonare Clarinet Trio, supported by the Embassy of Italy in Cyprus, makes a stop on our island for a single performance.
