Trio Hochelaga

ACD2 2355

Trio Hochelga Founded in 2000, Trio Hochelaga has quickly established itself as one of Canada's most exciting chamber music ensembles.   Together, violinist Anne Robert, cellist Benoît Loiselle, and pianist Stéphane Lemelin share their passion for a repertoire that ranges from the Classical period to the present.   Their repertoire not only includes the great works of the trio literature, but also makes a special place for French music, whose neglected treasures they enthusiastically explore.

Bearing the original Iroquois name of the city of Montreal, Trio Hochelaga has, from its inception, been invited to participate in the principal music festivals of Eastern Canada, including the Festival international de Lanaudiere, the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, and the Orford Arts Centre Festival.   In 2003, Trio Hochelaga gave the premiere performance of Jacques Hétu's Triple Concerto with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal at the Lanaudiére Festival.   The ensemble's first CD release, a recording of the two trios of Anton Arensky, was received by the press with high praise.
