Theatrio was founded in 2015. Studying at the ‘Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya’ (ESMUC) in Barcelona, Lourdes, Marit and David soon became aware of their shared love for classical chamber music and the possibilities of dramatizing this music. They are working on a new concert profile, stressing the strong relationship between opera, theatre and instrumental music.
They are giving concerts in an intimate environment, giving them the opportunity to interact with the audience, inside and outside of the ESMUC, as a trio as well as collaborating with colleagues and forming a bigger ensemble.
"We are a group of musicians that wants to diminish the gap between the audience and musicians, and as well between the music and musicians. Looking for a innovative way of approaching the music, we are searching how to engage and attract an audience. We feel the need for a new format of presentation."

Le Concert d'Apollon
The idea to assemble a group of friends, and excellent musicians who were interested in French orchestral repertoire that had not yet been recorded, was the fundamental concept to the formation of this new ensemble. Not only has this music ever been recorded or performed, there are no modern or complete editions since so much of this music survived only in a reduced form (missing much of the harmonic structure).
Le Concert d’Apollon aims to produce new and more complete editions of this grandiose repertoire. We wish to realize this music in a historically informed manner while still creating a unique and exciting performance atmosphere by introducing the dichotomy between a small ensemble and an orchestral setting (trios vs. t☺ous). Exclusive and fresh transcriptions are included in our repertoire.
