Always keeping an eye on the new

Always staying curious

One of the greatest challenges that percussionists encounter again and again is the relatively young and not yet very comprehensive repertoire of percussion. This is due to the fact that the instrumental field of percussion in a solo chamber music context has not existed for very long. Composer legends such as Bach, Mozart and Beethoven only occasionally used the timpani in an orchestral context. A repertoire for mallet instruments, for example, has been established only slowly since the beginning of the 20th century and is still emerging. In this matter TrioColores is very committed. Expanding the contemporary percussion repertoire is a major endeavour of the trio. Collaborations and the commissioning of major compositions by renowned composers such as Avner Dorman crown the work of the ensemble. Numerous dedicated compositions, such as those by Nils Rohwer, Ivan Trevino and Rainer Rubbert, among others, can also be credited to the three musicians. In addition to their own arrangements, the new works are also very popular with the audience, both live in concert and online on all major streaming platforms.
