TRIO CON BRIO-COPENHAGEN
with violist Ivo-Jan Van der Werff and bassist Timothy Pitts
joining the trio for Schubert’s “Trout Quintet”
Since its inception the Trio has won most of the international competitions for piano trio, including the ARD (Munich), Vittorio Gui (Florence) and Norway’s Trondheim Competition. In January 2015 the Trio became the first ensemble to receive one of Denmark’s most prestigious music awards, the “P2 Artists Prize,” at a live televised concert where they performed Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. Other major awards received include the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award (USA) and the “Allianz Prize” in Germany’s Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
The Trio’s sound benefits from the superb instruments they play: Soo-Jin plays a violin built by Andrea Guarneri from the 17th century, Soo-Kyung plays a Grancino cello, and Jens is Denmark’s first Steinway Artist. Both string players are endorsed by Jagar Strings and Thomastik-Infeld Vienna.
The Trio Con Brio-Copenhagen will perform:
Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Trio in D major, Op.70, No.1 “The Ghost” (1808)
Dmitri Shostakovich: Piano Trio in E minor, No.2, Op.67 (1944)
Franz Schubert: Piano Quintet in A major, D.667 “The Trout” (1819)
