The Canadian ensemble Trio de l’Île presents its debut recording with a mix of Argentinian and Armenian music. The album focuses on the fusion of different styles bringing forth colorful mosaics. On the one hand, Astor Piazzolla revolutionized the tango by blending it with jazz and classical music, giving light to Nuevo Tango. While Gayané Chebotaryan and Arno Babadjanian harmoniously combine Armenian folk music with the Russian classical tradition. Trio de l’Île (violinist Uliana Drugova, cellist Dominique Beauséjour-Ostiguy, and pianist Patil Harboyan) is a Québec-based ensemble that is known for its passionate and rigorous interpretations.
