The Amatis Trio, comprising of violinist Lea Hausmann, cellist Samuel Shepherd and pianist Andrei Gologan perform an arrangement of Gabriel Fauré’s Après un rêve.
The piece was originally published in 1878 as the first of a set of three songs for solo voice and piano, the original text describes the dream of a romantic flight, an abrupt awakening, followed by return to the ecstatic nature of the dream.
The Amatis Trio was founded in Amsterdam in 2014 and is now based in Salzburg, Austria. They are former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and were selected as ECHO Rising Stars in Germany, as well as recipients of the Kersjesprijs of the Netherlands and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship award.
Both Hausmann and Shepherd play on Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume instruments loaned by patrons through the Beares International Violin Society.
Amatis Trio wil perform a programme of Schubert, Andrea Tarrodi and Shostakovich in their concert Glimpses of Light as part of Classical Vauxhall on Saturday 12 February, 6pm at St Mark’s, Kennington. More information can be found here.
