Concert Review
The Trio Monbraque was in excellent form for their concert this past week at L'Oasis Musicale. Jonathan Bailey's flute playing, particularly in Messiaen's Le Merle Noir, was finely constructed, passionate, and engaging. His tone on the flute was soaring through the variations and rhythmically challenging music. Genevieve Beaudet proved an excellent pianist partner for him in the Prokofiev Sonata Op. 94, a piece requiring enormous endurance and tenacity from both musicians.  Donald Pistolesi joined them for Martinu's trio H300, a charming work, which in contrast to how it may appear on the score, sounded perfectly natural to the ear. In all, a terrific concert.
