If sound is color, and time is space, composers and musicians can be painters. On it's electrifying debut release, Portraits, the Belgian-Dutch Mosa Trio interprets three pictures: Shostakovitch's desolately intense tombeau for a friend (the Piano Trio No. 2 of 1944), Sam Wamper's scintilating portrait of his beloved (2015), and Mathias Coppens' versatile celebration of listeners and performers (2015). Because of the almost inexhaustible energy the members of the young trio put into understanding their repertoire, their performances comprise great expression, inner depth and a homogeneous interpretation. The trio displays this in a broad repertoire, ranging from early classicism to contemporary music, showing great interest in the performance practice of these different style preiods. As a result, the trio's performances stand out not only for their technical mastery, but also for their versatility. The Mosa Trio is violinist Alexandra Van Beveren, cellist Paul Stavridis, and pianist Bram de Vree.
