In 2005 Helene Kenyeri, oboe, Mirjam Schiestl, clarinet and Marion Biber-Janda, bassoon came together to form the ensemble Trio Mignon Vienna. This special kind of ensemble first established itself as independent chamber music formation in France at the beginning of the 20th century, when renowned composers such as Henri Tomasi, Eugene Bozza and Jean Françaix, whose works are featured on this CD, wrote for this special cast. Besides arrangements of Baroque and Renaissance repertoire, another focal point of the young musicians’ artistic work constitutes contemporary music by (Austrian) composers such as Thomas Heinisch and Helmut Hödl, whose works also appear on this album. Above all, it is the passion for the beautiful, enchanting and inspiring sound of this combination of instruments that from the start provided impulses to the ensemble for conveying music to the young and elderly.

The name of the trio, “Mignon” – translated literally from the French it means “dearest,” “sweet” – very pointedly describes the sounds, the colours and the character of its repertoire.

The special nature of the ensemble is called Trio d’anches, which more or less means “mouthpiece ensemble” or “reed ensemble,” and first established itself as an autonomous chamber music formation in France at the beginning of the 20th century. Renowned composers such as Francis Poulenc, Darius Milhaud and Jean Françaix wrote works for this special formation.
