What if you began your 2020 with music? The Rainier III Auditorium welcomes you for its Happy Hour Musical series with a chamber music concert on Tuesday, January 7 at 6:30 p.m., accompanied by the Goldberg Trio and Stéphanos Thomopoulos.

This alert is for music lovers and especially chamber music fans, as the Rainier III Auditorium has put together an exceptional concert for the start of the year 2020. As part of his Happy Hour Musical series, it receives the Goldberg Trio, comprised of Liza Kerob on violin, Federico Hood on viola, and Thierry Amadi on cello – all three soloists from the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. A gold medalist training with high distinction, during the last edition of the Vienna International Music Competition and which has just released new albums, From the shadow to light and a tribute to Mozart, to discover on streaming platforms or at all your good record stores. But for this concert at the start of the year, they will be joined by the Greek pianist Stéphanos Thomopoulos, considered as one of the greatest contemporary European pianists, winner of the most prestigious international competitions and who has already performed several times in Monaco, notably at the Printemps des Arts.

An original repertoire

The four musicians have planned an unexpected program that will surprise more than one. We can hear first of all the String Quartet with piano in B minor, considered as incomplete by Guillaume Lekeu, followed by the String Quartet with piano in E major, opus 20 by Sergei Taneyev. A demanding and exciting repertoire, which will be the subject of a discussion with the artists after the performance, over a glass of friendship.
