Dear music lovers,

we are delighted to once again welcome the trio “La Réjouissance” to the Musikstudio, who last sweetened our afternoon with their wonderful sounds in the midst of the corona pandemic 2021 despite the adverse circumstances. Today, the musicians Mariya Miliutsina (transverse flute), Ilona Les (violoncella / viola da gamba) and Natalia Lentas (fortepiano / harpsichord) present us with a programme centred around the Bach family, for which they write the following: 

The programme focuses on the music of the great father – Johann Sebastian Bach – and his three sons Carl Philipp Emanuel, Wilhelm Friedemann and Johann Christian.
Despite their family ties, each of them is characterised by a unique musical style. The characters of the famous sons could not be more different: Carl Philipp Emanuel is described as the sensitive visionary, Wilhelm Friedemann as the ingenious loner and finally the youngest Johann Christian as the gallant star.
They undoubtedly inherited their talent from their brilliant father and, thanks to him, wrote a great musical history. Even if the father’s music remains timeless, he could certainly be proud of his offspring.

– La Réjouissance

The ensemble “La Réjouissance” was founded in June 2018 by students of the Cologne University of Music and Dance. The name of the ensemble comes from the 18th century French folk dance “Réjouissance”, which is occasionally performed as part of a suite and can be translated as “joy”. The core instrumentation consists of transverse flute, viola da gamba/baroque violoncello and harpsichord/hammer grand piano, although the ensemble also enjoys exploring other tonal colours and instrument combinations. Since July 2019, the La Réjouissance trio has received a scholarship from the Werner Richard – Dr Carl Dörken Foundation. The repertoire includes the high and late baroque as well as the sensitive style and the pre-classical period. From January to March 2022, the ensemble performed in the “Best of NRW” concert series. In April 2022, the ensemble won 1st prize in the Early Music Promotion Prize at the TAMIS Festival in Saarbrücken, Germany. In March 2023, the ensemble released its first CD entitled “La Réjouissance Galante”, which contains repertoire from the high baroque and gallant style.

Mariya Miliutsina, an experienced chamber musician, is held in high esteem far beyond the Cologne area. She has also performed with other musicians in various chamber music ensembles. In the meantime, she has been invited to perform as a transverse flutist with historically-informed performance practice orchestras such as the Barockorchester Mainz, Collegium Cartusianum, Main-Barockorchester Frankfurt, Rheinische Kantorei and Kölner Akademie.

On her musical journey, Ilona dedicates herself to a variety of genres and styles and plays as a freelance artist with various ensembles, such as the Main-Barockorchester Frankfurt, Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt, Harmonie Universelle and others. She has taken part in various festivals and masterclasses such as Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Hori Musik Tage, Die Ensemble-Akademie Freiburg. In 2022 she co-founded the ensemble Il Varco.

She is also a passionate teacher and teaches cello in Seligenstadt and Frankfurt.
