LA MUSE

Due to release in May 2021

We will present La Muse at a festive release-concert on 23 May in Splendor Amsterdam. You can follow it via Live-stream. Pre-order the cd now by email with introductory discount.

Our newest CD La Muse has very personal history to tell. It starts with our choice for this music. We present to you two completely different works from 1944. One is turbulent and magnificent, the other intimate and poetic. The two composers could not be more different, and might be said to clash. And yet, we feel their works are a beautiful match and complement each other well. Was it inspiration, call it the Muse, that brought the two together? Florent Schmitt’s muse seems to be Music itself, leading him on in an explosion of compositional creativity. Darius Milhaud names his wife Madeleine as his muse and pours his gratitude into a musical tribute.

Florent Schmitt (1870-1958) String Trio op. 105 (1944)

Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) Suite ‘La muse ménagère’ (The Household Muse) (1944) Arrangements of the original piano suite made by: Bob Gilmore, Tim Kliphuis, Petra Griffioen and Marijn van Prooijen

La Muse was recorded by Tom Peeters in Native DSD format and will soon be released by Cobra Records. Via Cobra a variety of Super Audio formats will be available.

VOYAGE

 VOYAGE has been rated 10 out of 10 in music magazine Luister!

'Prisma trio convinces with a full sound and swinging rhythms (…) Their own adaptation of Ravel's Ronsard à son âme is particularly successful, with Kliphuis' Space Opera the trio goes 'where no man has gone before' (…) Lots of praise for it's enterprising initiative to self-publish this CD. '

Voyage can be listened to as a Prisma concert program. The starting point is the magnificent trio of Jean Cras. This French naval commander unjustly remained unknown as a composer. He wrote the trio in 1926 aboard his naval frigate Lamotte-piquet. A work full of adventure, the scent of the sea and distant lands, and nostalgia for the music of Brittany.
