TrioMats är i dag en väletablerad elitensemble som regelbundet framträder runtom i Sverige. Ensembelns första utlandsturné gick till Irland. 2002 besökte trion Litauen. Skivdebuten på Daphne innehöll tre klassiska verk för pianotrio: Beethoven, Ravel och Sjostakovitj. Denna skiva innehåller svensk musik som visar att pianotrion kan locka även nutida utövare och förmedla nya uttryck.

 

Musik av: Anders Nilsson b. 1954, Sven-David Sandström b. 1942, Johan Jeverud b. 1962, 
Gösta F. Hansson b. 1957

 

Recensioner:
This is an amusing group made up of three guys named Mats, all Swedish musicians. They seem to enjoy themselves immensely and have found some unusual and exciting music to play for us. Anders Nilsson (b. 1954) wrote a three-movement trio in 1998 mainly made up of dance-like pieces. It is catchy and attractive music. Just so or even more so is Sven-David Sandström’s 24-minute movement, a lovely, almost Brahmsian work of considerable power and beauty written in 1989. Johan Jeverud (b. 1962) takes us back to the dance in his three-movement piece, written 1990, while Gosta F Hansson’s (b. 1957) lovely piece written in 2002 serves to cap this lively and highly attractive program. I recommend it to those of us tired of dissonance, tired of minimalism, and hungering for a good helping of something we can relate to without reservations. This is real music well played. It’s nice to know it is still alive in Sweden.

Anders Nilsson's perky, dance-like Piano Trio makes no great modernist statements but is fiery and seductive, particularly in its middle movement, the lilting Habanera. Brahms is re-invented in Sven David Sandström's bizarre yet texturally well-written Fantasia II Its rhapsodic, Romantic language is treated with great warmth and tenderness by TioMats, the grand chordal gestures from the piano especially powerful. Johan Jeverud‚s angular, chaotic yet likeable Chamber Music, Chapter 2 brings some soloistic moments for the string players in its final movement, Resonance: violinist Mats Zetterqvist and cellist Mats Rondin offers some delicate and sensitive interplay. The brief Tribute by self-taught Gosta F. Hansson is fleeting and ethereal, with elegantly written textures, etched with subtlety and grace by TrioMats.

”Trio Mats heter så därför att alla medlemmarna heter – gissa vad! Jo, Mats. Mats Zetterqvist violin, Mats Rondin cello, Mats Widlund piano. De har tidigare spelat in en skiva med mer traditionella piano-trios på samma bolag, och den här gången har de helt koncentrerat sig på nyskrivna svenska verk. Anders Nilssons trio skrevs 1998 och har något av restaurangmusik över sig. Sven-David Sandström är vacker romantisk, nästan Brahmsk. Johan Jeverud klingar som vanligt attraktivt och den självlärde Gösta F Hanssons Tribute fabulerar på ett nästan improvisatoriskt sätt. Men först och främst: Matsarna spelar gudabenådat”
