Founded by three Italian musicians with a wealth of performing experience, both individually and in ensembles, the trio Voces Intimae (Luigi De Filippi, violin; Sandro Meo, cello; Riccardo Cecchetti, fortepiano) gave its first concert in 1998. Since that time, the trio has performed in many cities in Italy and in London, Hamburg, Utrecht, Barcelona, Brussels, Antwerp and New York, among others. Their concerts have been broadcast on BBC-Radio 3 and RAI-Radio 3.
The group’s first recording of the complete Hummel piano trios on two compact discs, performed on period instruments, was for Warner Classics. Voces Intimae has also recorded three CDs for the Italian label Symphonia, dedicated to the trios of Schubert, Mendelssohn and an unpublished repertoire of nineteenth-century fantasies based on the music of Vincenzo Bellini.
Much of its repertoire concentrates on the work of composers inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, transcriptions based on operas of Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi and Italian and French trios composed at the turn of the twentieth century. Their current tour in the United States takes them to Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Middlebury, Vermont.
