TROMP 2020 opening night

 

With no less than two piano duos (two brothers, two sisters) a choir, vocal soloists and seven percussionists, this is a richly decorated concert with only classics. Stravinsky's ballet Les noces (Wedding) does not often adorn the lecterns. That's because it needs an exceptional cast, and we've got them together now!
