February 10th –  Trebelle with Jennifer Dunn, Heidi Nagel and Robyn Wells

trebelle

Trebelle is a combination of the Italian words “tre” (three) and “belle” (the plural form of the word, beauty).  Every year, Trebelle performs popular and hidden gems in the piano trio repertoire. Trebelle members, violinist Jennifer Dunn, cellist Heidi Nagel, and pianist Robyn Wells, first decided to form a piano trio when they collaborated on Robyn’s CD, Hymns, Songs and Spirituals.  Trebelle made its debut  in February 2012, and has been presenting concerts throughout the Treasure Valley ever since.  Trebelle was selected to perform at the McCall Second Sunday Sounds at Six concert series in both 2013 and 2016. In 2018, Trebelle was selected to perform at the College of Southern Idaho’s Piano Celebration concert series,  and for the Second City Chamber Series in Tacoma, Washington.

Tomas Rodriguez has developed a unique repertoire for guitar performance that is rooted in his ancestry and guided by the diverse styles of music that have inspired him. His programs draw on the folk music of Galicia, Spain, arrangements of the works Venezuelan harp masters Juan Vicente Torrealba and Ignacio Figueredo, interpretations of the compositions of Malian virtuosos Toumani Diabaté, and Ali Farka Touré as well as touching on contemporary flamenco. Rodriguez’ own compositions, emerging from these diverse musical inspirations, include original Brazilian choros, Venezuelan waltzes and flamenco granainas.

“Tomas Rodriguez plays guitar with a passionate originality, with an individual touch, drawing from the musical heart of the Latin world. The folk and classical traditions of Spain and South America are richly evident in Rodriguez’ playing, but he transmutes them into a sound clearly, fervently his own”. Christian Science Monitor
