PROGRAM NOTES
Hailed by Le Point (Paris) as a "meeting at the summit," the current members of the Arman Trio have performed regularly in Europe and in the USA since 1998.  The Trio is a fusion of three successful careers. Their friendship and collaboration in various ensembles had already started in 1985 in Paris. Their "poetic, impassioned and incisive performances" have won them accolades from the press and standing ovations from audiences.  Their style reflects the best chamber music traditions from Central Europe with elegant French panache.

Juilliard trained Turkish pianist Deniz Arman Gelenbe, described as "one of the best chamber musicians of our time" (Paris-Normandie) and a "romantic pianist" (Washington Times) has performed as soloist with orchestras worldwide including the Japan Philharmonic, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, Slovak Chamber Orchestra, North Carolina Symphony and in numerous recitals including at the Salles Gaveau (Paris), Tonhalle (Zurich), Wigmore Hall (London), and The National Gallery of Art (Washington DC). She has recorded for Hungaroton, Albany and Arcobaleno.

Bucharest Conservatory graduate, violinist Constantin Bogdanas was a first prize winner at the Tibor Varga Competition while cellist Dorel Fodoreanu, also a graduate of Bucharest Conservatory won top honors at the Enesco Competition. Together they were awarded First Prize at the Paris Chamber Music competition in 1981 and the Charles Cross Award with the Athenaeum-Enesco Quartet of which they are both founding members.
