The Trio Hochelaga offers many programs adapted to various audiences.
A musical soirée in George Sand’s salon
In a 19th century salon George Sand has gathered together some friends. Musicians, painters, novelists, intellectuals, men and women are assembled around the piano. They talk about literature, politics, music, but also about love, liberty and passion. The Trio Hochelaga is among the guests. The evening unfolds with a musical programme resonant with this atmosphere and interspersed with quotations.
We can hear works by CHOPIN, with whom George Sand has an ambiguous relationship, by HUMMEL, for whom Chopin has great admiration, by LISZT, a mutual friend of Alfred Musset and George Sand, and by MENDELSSOHN, whom Chopin and Liszt see regularly.
A concert inspired by the famous painting Franz Liszt Fantasizing at the Piano (1840) by Josef Danhauser.

A soirée at Johannes Brahms’ home
In a salon in Vienna, three friends get together. They share accounts of their travels and describe their recent encounters, interlaced with their musical experiences. Brahms, Schumann and Kirchner are passionate men. Join these three virtuosos around the piano, where they waver between tradition and innovation, lyricism and profound emotions, against the background of a Europe which is undergoing profound changes. The Trio Hochelaga gives life to this unique gathering and recreates the atmosphere of this soirée at Brahms’ home.
