Piano, violin, and violoncello: Trio Marvin's debut CD presents to us all the energy that composers have bundled together in this instrumental combination since the Romantic period. Vita Kan, Marius Urba and Marina Grauman describe "Echoes of War" as their juxtaposition of works by Dmitri Shostakovich and Mieczysław Weinberg, two composers who were influenced by World War II and Stalinism. The three draw us into a rhythm of hope, despair, and grief, igniting a firework of bright colors. Perfection, passion and musical superiority: it's easy to understand the enthusiasm of the jurors of the ARD Music Competition 2018, the Grand Prize of the Melbourne International Music Competition 2018 and other major competitions who have awarded the ensemble so many first prizes!
