Voces Intimae Piano Trio Launch Kickstarter Project With Outstanding Results


Acclaimed piano trio Voces Intimae launched their first-ever Kickstarter campaign last week, with results better than one could hope for. In a little more than a week, has the Italian-based trio already raised over €3,000 with the goal to reach €7,500 in just a few more weeks.

Funding will go towards making and releasing their upcoming CD recording: a very special second volume to what will be the first ever complete recording of the Robert and Clara Schumann Piano Trios on both period and modern instruments. The trio promises to delve into a world of passionate sounds and striking silences, created by utterly unconventional figures, and one which won't fail to impress performers and listeners alike.

The trio, consisting of Riccardo Cecchetti (piano), Luigi de Filippi (violin) and Sandro Meo (violincello), has appeared in concert halls such as the Wigmore Hall, Library of Congress of Washington D.C and The Concertgebouw of Amsterdam. With an impressive discography and reviews, including "Critics CD of the Year" and "CD of the Week" by BBC Radio3 and "Choice of the Month" by BBC Music Magazine, it makes sense that the ensemble strive to finish their beloved Schumann project. 

"We need our audience's support to recreate the ambience of the Schumann household, where music and music making were the greatest necessities." says Voces Intimae member Riccardo Cecchetti. "We aim to fulfil our desire to experience and share the emotions and the dreams of the Schumanns and to allow us to complete our research around Robert and Clara's piano trio repertoire. Together, we can make it." 

The aim of the trio is to restore the music to the purity of its original form, and to realise the true intentions of the composer. Their name, Voces Intimae, was chosen to convey the trio's sensitivity to the subleties of the repertoire, preferring for instance to highlight the delicate suggestion of a horse's trotting gait in the rhythm of a passage of music, rather than thoughtlessly articulating it in a manner recalling the sound of a round of artillery. 

What does your generous contribution go towards?
The funding will support not only a world-class piano trio from Italy, but also 'A Musical World-First': The recording of music that has not ever been recorded in its entirety on period and modern instruments and which is rarely performed. In return, backers receive not only the good karma from supporting a high quality classical music project, but generous rewards related to the trio and record label. 

Voces Intimae would like to thank all those who have already contributed to the campaign. With your help, they will reach their final goal and won't have to return the amount in full!
