Three virtuosi join together in the exciting group, Trio d'Argento. Sibylle, Peter and Todd bring a superb level of excellence to the performance of their virtuoso arrangements and original pieces, but combine this with a fun, relaxed and conversational atmosphere onstage.
The trio has firmly established itself in the Ontario chamber music scene in the past few years, playing to standing ovations and rave audience reviews for many series. In December 2014, the trio had its Music Toronto debut at the St. Lawrence Centre and has appeared in concerts for the Sarnia, Muskoka, Midland, Orangeville, Gallery 345 Toronto and Brantford Musical Club concert series, at McMaster University, Wilfrid Laurier University, Conrad Grebel University, the University of Guelph and the University of Toronto. They have also performed many times for Caledon Chamber Concerts and the Kitchener Waterloo Chamber Music Society over the past few years.
Trio D'Argento has collaborated with First Nations composer and performer Barbara Croall, and is planning to follow up our highly-successful debut recording with members of the Canadian Brass with a disc that will showcase our strong commitment to Canadian music. Plans are also in the works for future tours abroad that will feature some of our ‘greatest hits’ from past Ontario engagements, as well as exciting new repertoire.
To that end the trio was recently selected by audition to present showcases to concert presenters at separate contact events in British Columbia and Manitoba. We also continue to develop our educational approach to introducing newer compositions, multi- media experiences and audience-building programs. The trio will be performing for the first time in Quebec in the fall of 2017, at La Maison de la Culture Frontenac in Montréal, as part of an Ontario-Quebec tour, and is busy planning a BC tour for the fall of 2018. From the classics to jazz to exotic world music, these three brilliant musicians provide lively and entertaining concerts with spoken introductions to each piece. Sibylle and Peter play many different sizes of flutes, clarinets and even saxophone, creating a wide and ever-changing array of sound colours, combined with Todd's powerful pianism.

“Congratulations on a wonderful concert last night in Sarnia. The rhythmic precision and tuning were brilliant. I especially liked the Peterson work. You've made a very difficult acoustic combination sound so natural. I hope to hear you on our Sarnia program again next year.”
“Thank you all for the great concert. I'm still getting rave reviews from members of the audience. Not only was the music well played, the whole program was well chosen.”
