TRIO CHAROLCA 

The allure of the combination of flute, viola and harp lies in the rich and unusual pallete of tonecolours available, the differences in the three instruments contrast as well as complement eachother.

For listeners at the turn of the century, the combination of a wind, a string and a plucked instrument must have sounded very unusual.

Without any doubt, we can thank the impressionist period, in particular the composer Claude Debussy for this ensemble setting, in the wake of his 'Sonate' numerous compositions have been written, establishing this trio as one of the classic chamber music formations of the 20th century.
