The Degani Piano Trio
The Degani Piano Trio was formed in 2015, and has performed at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, the Curtis Auditorium CIT, and has given concerts in Wicklow, Cork and around Ireland. Interpretations of trio repertoire by Chopin, Brahms, Debussy, Rachmaninoff and Piazzolla have enthralled Irish audiences since 2015. They have given masterclasses in violin, cello and piano to third level students of the ‘School of Music’ at Cork Institute of Technology’. Their discography includes piano trios by Chopin, Brahms, Dvorak, Haydn and Piazzolla.
The Trio has joined with oboist Ruby Ashley to perform sonatas from the baroque era and special arrangements of contemporary works. Recently they joined with Irish soprano Sylvia O’Brien in concerts featuring Beethoven’s adaptations of Scottish and Irish folksongs.
Their choice of programme was perfectly in tune with the summer evening and its delivery was a delight from beginning to end…Each performance was so convincing that the audience reaction was one of absolute delight.
Declan Townsend, The Irish Examiner
The most complete and profoundly joyful music making. This performance had a blend of folksiness and high art sophistication that felt just right.
