Music has evolved more often by waves than by sudden jerks, as you’ll hear in this French programme that transports you from the late romantic to beyond Impressionism. With Ernest Chausson, the search for ethereal sonorities is already clearly underway.
These sounds unfold themselves gorgeously further in two short pieces by Lili Boulanger, who showed such huge potential for early-20th-century French music but died tragically young. Lastly, by the time of Maurice Ravel, impressionism has become more a memory than a future.
Ernest Chausson: Trio in sol klein
Lili Boulanger: D’un soir triste, D’un matin de printemps
Maurice Ravel: Klaviertrio

Van Baerle Trio
Maria Milstein, Gideon den Herder and Hannes Minnaar have spent almost half of their lives as the Van Baerle Trio. They met as students at the Amsterdam Conservatory and decided early on to explore the great piano trio repertoire together. Since then, they’ve been in the spotlights the world over.
They recently recorded the complete Beethoven trios, but for this Leuven concert they’ll rekindle one of their first loves: French chamber music from around 1900.
