About Trio Noga

Trio Noga With individual backgrounds in period instrument performance combined with a shared appreciation of "modern" instrument timbres, the three musicians of TRIO NOGA bring to their audience uniquely personal and sensitive interpretations of repertoire ranging from the late 18th century to the early 21st century.

Idit Shemer, flute

Idit Idit plays and performs on various flutes, from early instruments of the Baroque and Classical eras to the modern flute. A special part of her musical activity is devoted to contemporary music for flute. She has performed and recorded many pieces composed especially for her. Idit has performed extensively in Israel, Europe and America as a soloist and in chamber ensembles. She is a prominent flute and traverso teacher much appreciated by the many students who receive her insightful and committed teaching.

Idit has recently recorded in America, together with Maggie Cole, a CD of Phillppe Gaubert's music for flute and piano. She has also engaged in writing prose and has published two novels.

Orit Messer-Jacobi, violoncello

Idit Orit is the principal cellist of The Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra (under conductor, David Shemer). As a modern cellist, she has performed contemporary music and participated in musical projects drawing from theatre, dance, and recorded soundtracks.

Orit received her B.Mus. from the Rubin Academy at Tel Aviv University, and specialized in baroque violoncello with Roberto Gini at the Civica Scuola di Musica di Milano, Italy, (scholarships from the Italian and Israeli governments). At present she collaborates with several important Italian baroque ensembles such as Zefiro and The Venice Baroque Orchestra.

She has recorded for Sony Classic, Stradivarius, Arcana and Accord labels. She teaches chamber music and conducts youth chamber orchestras at the Tiv’on Conseravatory, Kfar Saba Conservatory and Bnei-hakibbutzim orchestra.

Maggie Cole, piano

Maggie Maggie enjoys an international musical life playing and recording on harpsichord, fortepiano and modern piano. Best known for harpsichord recitals with repertoire spanning the 17th to 21st centuries, she is also fascinated by the Classical period and explores this with her fortepiano-based Trio Goya (Kati Debretzeni, violin and Sebastian Comberti, cello).

Some of her many musical partnerships have resulted in recordings of Bach’s complete sonatas for violin and harpsichord with Catherine Mackintosh, Boccherini sonatas for cello and harpsichord with Steven Isserlis, “Mozartiana “ with Sebastian Comberti and Haydn trios with Trio Goya. Her solo recordings include Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and both Scarlatti and Soler keyboard sonatas.

Maggie is a member of the Sarasa Chamber Ensemble, a Cambridge USA based group with whom she performs regularly on both harpsichord and fortepiano. With Sarasa, she has been able to extend her love of teaching to the development of a programme which aims to facilitate music and poetry collaborations in youth detention facilities.

Maggie is professor of fortepiano at Guildhall School of Music and Drama and teaches early keyboards at Dartington International Summer School.

Press comment

Trio Noga image 'No less beguiling was the three artists’ reading of Gaubert’s “Three Aquarelles” (1915), the composer inspired by the transparency of water color technique and by the individual playing styles of flute, ‘cello and piano. Idit Shemer’s intense and scintillating playing in the first piece, endorsed with sunny references from the piano, presented the clear light of morning. In the second piece, Orit Messer-Jacobi creates the calm, somewhat melancholic mood piece of an “Autumn Evening”, with Maggie Cole and Idit Shemer painting in a gentle backdrop, then to be swept away by the vibrant, Spanish-tinged “Sérénade”, with its moving tonalities and exotically spiced harmonies. The three artists, well versed with the “raffinement” of this music, addressed the French soundscape, interpreting this music of the senses, of timbres and delicate colors with artistry.'
