Kaltenecker Trió

Orchestra, choir, ensemble

The present line-up of the Kaltenecker Trio crystallized in 1997, and the unique sound of the combo soon attracted the attention of many music enthusiasts. The Trio plays pianist Zsolt Kaltenecker's compositions, which are characterized by the harmonic world of the late 20th century, polymetrics, polyrhythm, the sophisticated placement of horizontal planes, and youthful dynamism. It is important to note that all these elements find their place in the well-defined system of tonality and approachable melodic lines.
Kaltenecker has always found his primary objective to express atmospheres through music in the best possible way, adding a tinge of humor as well. The sound of the Trio is determined by well-written themes set in standard-like structures and by modern improvisational techniques. The members' careers, interrupted by difficult periods, have given them ample opportunity to get acquainted with different musical styles whose elements they utilize to create special moods in their music. Besides offering entertainment to the listener, the Trio's aim is to shape the music of our age.
