Gulden Euro Trio

…invites you on a musical trip through the continent of Europe or, in our newest program, brings you back to the 70ties. The musicians are: Pip van Steen (flute, alto flute and piccolo), Andrea Pieper (violin and double bass) and Marcel Siebers (piano).

You’ll be surprised of how transparent the music sounds and how much difference there is in rhythm and melody in the folk music of the countries whereupon the music is based. The core of the music is composed but this will be relieved by improvisations. Even so surprising sounds the rock music in the recomposed chamber music version. The music is for everybody and suited for all ages.

We named the 31-part ‘European Tour piece’: “Euro Suite & Other Change”.

A major part can be heard on the CD: ‘Selections of Euro Suite & Other Change’.

Please have a look and listen to some examples at our playlist.

Our new program is  ‘FOCUS ON DIME’, the compositions are partly from a former rock band in which Marcel has played the keyboards in the early seventies. He has arranged and recomposed 7 former rock songs into 6 chamber music songs and it sounds wonderful well! This selection is also available on our 2nd CD: “Paying with Dimes”. We recently added 8 own arrangements of the Dutch rock band Focus, compositions of  Thijs van Leer and  Jan Akkerman.
Besides these elements we play some own compositions and some own arranged classical pieces.

The original combination of the Gulden Euro Trio was flute, mandolin and piano.
When Will Derks on mandolin (and co-composer) decided to step back, Pip and Marcel took the challenge to find a good and steady alternative and found it in violist Andrea Pieper (and…. she also plays the double bass).

This gives the Gulden Euro Trio a New Sound and a New Look with the same ‘feel good music’!
