“Classic with a twist” present young musicians in the beautiful salon of Pulchri Studio programs with crossovers between chamber music and outside influences.

Claude Debussy(1862-1918): Rhapsodie no. 1 for clarinet and piano (1910), Sonata for cello and piano (1915), Clair de lune (1905), Minstrels (1910).
Ralph Vaughan Williams(1872-1958): Six studies in English Folk Song for clarinet, cello and piano (own arrangement).
Hazrat Inayat Khan(1882-1927) Awake for morning for cello solo.
Nino Rota(1911-1979): Trio for clarinet, cello and piano (1973)

In the Rhapsody for clarinet and piano, Claude Debussy experimented with exotic sounds. During a holiday in England he heard a minstrel band play. Around 1900 this variety, music and dance genre was popular in England. It inspired him to the Prelude “Minstrels” for piano solo.

English folk music was the inspiration of Ralph Vaughan Williams for his Six studies in English Folksong. This is the musicians’ own arrangement.

“Awake for morning” for cello solo by the Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan is inspired by Indian classical music. Nino Rota wrote the music for classic films. In his trio he was able to express himself in a much more abstract way, but he nevertheless opted for sentimentality.
