"The important thing in a trio is the interaction," said Greek pianist and composer Nikolas Anadolis. "Not only how well you are in contact with your own feelings, but also how much you're in agreement with the others musically. How the three of us can be one." This synergy of opposing impulses first makes a community of musicians into an organism that helps the sound experience, in itself abstract, produce a specific and ideally emotional effect. The small scale form of the trio has been from the beginning one of Anadolis's preferred options. Even as a composer, he follows the idea of a breathing music that is based on the harmony of it's elements. There are many moments of tonal subtlety which, in the fragility of the motifs, give the pelvic range of the percussion the opportunity to develop it's own colors. There are also challenging passages where the piano, with it's fascinatingly articulated runs and sound salvos, rises to become the dominant instrument, but without blurring it's fullness in pathos. In this live recording of his trio performed in Heidelberg, Nikolas Anadolis makes an impressive statement.
