Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The trio arrangements on this disc are arias from classic 19th-century French operas such as Les Huguenots (1836) by Meyerbeer; Mignon (1866) by Thomas; Werther (1893) by Massenet; and Samson et Dalila (1877) by Saint-Saëns. This is the final recording by Trio Hochelaga in its original formation, as Lemelin and Marleyn left the trio in the summer of 2012.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The Trio Hochelaga plays beautifully, with a singing, lyrical tone that suits vocal melodies of this music extremely well. They are fully capable of digging for depth of expression, as in the more melancholy parts of Mignon and the tragic passages of Werther. They convey very well the mixture of grandeur and frivolity in the Huguenots score. Everybody's solo moments come through well without compromising the overall ensemble sound.
