Vivre Musicale, Inc.
Founded in 2009 and participant in such arts festivals as Artscape in Baltimore, Maryland and the INTERSECTIONS Festival in Washington, D.C., Vivre Musicale is a non-profit chamber music collective that provides career advancement opportunities to contemporary, professional and pre-professional classical musicians through professional education, program diversification, and interdisciplinary collaboration focused on further enhancing the concert experience.
Winner of the 2011-2012 CMA/ASCAP award for Adventurous Programming, recipient of the 2012 Irish Arts Council Music Commissions Award, and winner of the 2015 KBC Great Music in Irish Houses Festival Support Act- Residency, Vivre Musicale is committed to thought-provoking concert programming that promotes community outreach, civic engagement, and social equality, drawing on the power of music to connect communities while furthering social dialogue.
In a world where classical music is besieged by class and culture wars, it is the music itself that must inspire, propel, and give voice. If Vivre is life, then Vivre Musicale is the living music, the chamber collective of the past, the present, and the future.
Mondrian Trio, much like the masterpieces of their namesake, are defined by their individual creativity, poise and artistic conviction, all which render them autonomous, separate elements that together, enhance their union. Founded in 2015 and winner of the 2015 Great Music in Irish Houses Support Act Residency, the Vivre Musicale Mondrian Trio with American clarinetist, Berginald Rash; Italian cellist, Anna Marcossi; and Italian-Argentinian pianist, Annalisa Monticelli is setting the stage in Dublin and abroad with charismatic performances, impactful programming, and evocative beauty of ensemble. The Mondrian Trio has participated in masterclasses and coached with such artists as Gottfried von der Goltz of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, John Finucane, Simon Aspell, Michael D'Arcy, Finghin Collins, Aaron Boyd of the Escher Quartet, Stephan Forck of the Vogler Quartett, and more. It is a trio whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but whose parts are breathtaking.
