Tricoter - Concert for Trio
Tricoter by Trio Ateek
Tricoter/Hiyakeh is a musical project for three instruments; qanun, cello and piano. The theme is inspired from old colorful textiles and the music represents the interweaving of sounds together like the threads of our beautiful fabrics and colors mixing east, west , modern, classical , jazz , oriental and all the different styles together to form a new form of musical sound, polyphony and texture. The musicians are the renowned Turkish cellist Cag Ercag and qanun player from Azerbeijan Aysu Sadiqova and Zina Asfour on the piano. The qanun replaces the violin and adds an oriental flavor to the sound texture of this original trio.
The programme is mostly by composers from the region such as Iyad Mohammad, Tarek Younis, Haitham Sukkarieh,Dadashov and Iyad Kanaan, as well as arrangements by Iyad Mohammad of Shostakovitch Fugue and Prelude and De Falla Spanish songs. We are always looking for more contemporary composers to further enrich our repertoire which includes many World Premieres and commissions.
