Trio Hormus. Recently formed, these three artists had already worked together in the past twenty or so years in various chamber music events tied to the Cecilian movement. However, their connections began back in their years of study at the Conservatory. It was in February of 2008 that their musical "fellowship" started taking shape when they were all involved in concerts for the hundredth anniversary of the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia to which the two wind instrumentalists (of the Trio) have belonged for many years.

The enrichment of the repertoire through the use of transcriptions or arrangements is dictated by a particular choice, with the aim of exploring areas of timbre and musicality that differ from the traditional ones, rather than an objective lack of specific and original songs. Even if in some cases the flute replaces the clarinet, or the bassoon the cello, or the piano the harpsichord, and this represents a valid yet easy alternative to a choice of timbre, in other more difficult cases, the transcription of the score is a real challenge for all the members of the Trio.

Despite the long experience of the three musicians, it is still a "young" ensemble'' which is ready to embark with enthusiasm on a journey that started in the early 1800s, and brings one through the various musical languages up to today's new contemporary productions.

Trio Hormus has recorded his first album devoted to Beethoven, Donizetti and Von Weber for OnClassical while a second album is nearly to be released.
