Interview with Trio Dali – part 3
Interpretation, says Sareika, demands an element of individual freedom, and they try to bring to well-known historical works the same kind of imaginative freedom that new music gives them.
It was this idea which gave rise to their name. Trio Dali has nothing to do with the artist Salvador. Rather, they are named after a Chinese city famous for its marble, from which beautiful artefacts are traditionally made. They liked the idea of the score as raw material, with the musicians as masons whose job was to make something precious, transforming stone into art.
At the moment, the young musicians are buzzing with excitement about a different kind of transformation in their collective life.
“We will all be living in the same city,” announces Sareika.
“From now, actually,” begins La Marca,
“After five years,” continues Savary,
“In two days, officially,” interjects Sareika,
” – we will all be living in Paris. Finally,” says La Marca.
So Waterloo will become a part of the trio’s biography, and their focus will shift to what they say are similarly idyllic rehearsal facilities in the French capital.
And balancing solo with trio commitments?
“All three of us think that trio is part of a solo achievement, in a way,” says La Marca.
“Actually, there is not really trio or solo,” says Sareika.
“There is just music,” concludes La Marca.
