Tailleferre Piano Trio

French Germaine Tailleferre was the sole female composer among Les Six, a loosely formed group of six composers active in France in the 1920s. Her music is exuberantly energetic and imbued with melodic imagination. Watch a concert video with her Piano Trio in a recording from the beautiful Grünewald Hall of the Konserthuset Stockholm.

For a period, Germaine Tailleferre spent significant time with Maurice Ravel, from whom she also took lessons. Still, she herself was never an Impressionist. During the group’s relatively brief period in existence, the common goal of Les Six was instead to react against Impressionist and late-Romantic work. 

She composed the melodically captivating and boldly rhythmic trio for piano, violin and cello early on, around 1916–17, and revised it in 1978. Germaine Tailleferre, who passed away in 1983 at the age of 91, was active until the end of her life and even has a street in Paris named after her. 

This recording with Lola Torrente on violin and Hanna Dahlkvist on cello (both members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra since 2015), as well as pianist Anna Christensson, is from a concert in Grünewald Hall at which they performed piano trios by four female composers. In addition to Tailleferre, music by Andrea Tarrodi was also performed; this trio is also available here on KonserthusetPlay.
