Auerbach_Transkriptionen_Juli_2015

New transcriptions by the Russian-American composer Lera Auerbach will be performed at the Verbier Festival and the Rheingau Music Festival in July 2015.

The oboist François Leleux, the cellist Edgar Moreau and Lera Auerbach (at the piano) will perform the new Trio for oboe, violoncello and piano based on Sergei Prokofiev’s Flute Sonata, Op. 94 on 23 July 2015 at the Église in Verbier. This transcription was commissioned by Elisabeth and Gil Waters. In addition, Lera Auerbach (piano) together with the violinist Alexandra Conunova and the cellist Edgar Moreau will perform the Swiss premiere of her Trio No. 2 “Triptych - The Mirror with the Three Faces” at this concert.

Just one week later, on 29 July 2015, Lera Auerbach (piano) will be accompanied by the violinist Daniel Hope and the cellist Alban Gerhardt at the German premiere of her Prokofiev piano trio adaptation at the Rheingau Music Festival in Geisenheim (Johannisberg Castle). Lera Auerbach is composer and artist in residence at the festival this year.
The Trio received its world premiere on 20 January 2015 at an Auerbach portrait concert in San Francisco. The composer/pianist was supported there by Philippe Quint (violin) and Joshua Roman (violoncello).
