The three musicians of the Astor Trio have managed the rare establishment of a completely new and unusual chamber music ensemble in classical music and thereby inspire the audience and the critics alike. George Gershwin meets Manuel de Falla - on their new album the Astor Trio combines works of the two composers, thus bringing classical chamber music at its best on stage, in a completely new perspective. There is a groove and a spontaneity that one knows more of jazz acts, combined with classic sound quality and precision.

With his music from Porgy & Bess or the Three Preludes George Gershwin - like no other American composer - combined jazz traditions with classical music. Similarly Manuel de Falla: At the same time in Spain, the great national composer wrote masterpieces in which supreme virtuosity, impressionistic sound richness and flamenco traditions of his country join hands. Music that fits perfectly the Astor Trio and that the three interpret congenial. Download and streaming worldwide on all popular platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, Google Play.
