EQUINOX TRIO –
Contemporary Classical Music
Equinox Trio features pianist Tricia Dawn Williams, clarinettist Lino Pirotta and violinist Tatjana Chircop: three musicians committed to contemporary music who have followed master classes on 20th century music.
Equinox recorded 'Mouse in the Machine' and 'Constellations' by Ruben Zahra released in 2009 on the CD 'Arabesque'. In September 2009, Equinox Trio was invited by the Embassy of Malta in France to give a recital of contemporary classical music at Le Musée des Invalides, to commemorate the 45th Anniversary of Malta’s Independence in Paris.
One of their latest performances, featuring 'Trios' by Maltese composers, was received with great acclaim: "… the gusts of melodic wind created by the clarinet, and the violin and those brilliant chordal piano passages made the evening one I will remember with pleasure for a long time." (Sunday Times, 6 June 2010)
The programme of Equinox Trio promotes contemporary compositions together with the music of established 20th century masters such as Paul Hindemith, Béla Bartok, Witold Lutowslaski, Ahmet Adnan Saygun, Gyorgy Ligeti, Darius Milhaud and others.
