Album Notes
An exceptional friendship was born when a saxophonist, a violinist and a harpist met in Utrecht in 2008. Naturally, the three young musicians soon decided to extend their affinity to music. But what do you play when there is no music written for your combination of instruments?

Now, three years later, these young musicians study in Amsterdam, London and Paris. Their individual careers have taken them far, as winners of prestigious national and international prizes and competitions. Nevertheless, their love for chamber music and quest for repertoire for their unprecedented ensemble always leads them back home.

In the nineteenth century, Liszt was constantly transcribing his own work and that of other composers. trio42 by sheer necessity follows in his footsteps, undaunted by musical conventions and common preconceptions about transcriptions. As a matter of fact, because they are necessitated to closely examine and arrange every note, they develop an even closer engagement in everything they play. This is one of the foundations of their unique sound and musical interaction.

Thus Christian translates the sounds of a lyrical violin in Shostakovich and plays the connective part of a cello in Ibert, giving the saxophone an original and unprecedented role in chamber music. Merel in her turn enables her violin to resonate the magnificent melodies of Glinka and surprises with unexpected colours in Milhaud’s Brasileira. Remy finally defies the boundaries of his harp in Franck’s scintillating trio, demonstrating that the harp is not an instrument to overlook.

Destination embodies the search, arrangements, rehearsals and performance of three people who aspire to make music that touches the soul. Whether an actual destination can be found remains uncertain. Making the journey is however sufficiently miraculous and beautiful in itself. This recording gives you the opportunity to join trio42 in their travels, through which one thing you can be certain of:

This is something you have never heard before.
