"A song goes around the world"
Behind the simple name "Das Trio" hides an amazing variety. And also such a surprising combination of instruments as one rarely encounters: with violin, accordion and vocals, Das Trio plays melodies that move the heart. After all, that's what music is for.
They first appeared in 2014 with chansons from Edith Piaf to Georges Moustaki: soprano and economist Martina Oertli, violinist and mathematician Edward Ebersold and organist and choirmaster Paolo d'Angelo. Now they are going on tour again, playing 20 concerts in German-speaking Switzerland.
"A song goes around the world" is the motto this time. You can hear, for example, the Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller, the jaunty Lola from "The Blue Angel" to catchy tunes by Kálmán and Lehár, peppered with chansons by Edith Piaf.
And the variety is even greater: Oertli also plays the flute and bassoon as well as large and small saxophones, Ebersold, in addition to the violin, also the rougher viola, and D'Angelo, of course, also on the accordion, which is related to the organ. Between the pieces, anecdotes and all kinds of interesting facts are served. An eventful musical journey that could not be more diverse.
