“…the ensemble between these three players was superb”
First Prize and Audience Prize winner of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2015, the Linos Piano Trio is increasingly recognised as one of Europe's most creative and dynamic trios.
C. P. E. Bach
Piano Trio in D major No. 6
Light and Matter
Piano Trio in B flat major, op. 97, Archduke
Drawing on the rich and varied cultural and musical backgrounds of its members, which encompass five nationalities, as well as specialisms in historically informed performance and new music, the Linos Piano Trio possesses a colourful and distinctive musical voice. Praised for its “slow-burning, gripping performance” by The Strad, and an “astounding performance” by the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, the trio’s reputation has taken it to prestigious venues worldwide including the Barbican and Wigmore Halls, Melbourne Recital Centre, Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, Holzhausenschlösschen in Frankfurt, Théâtre Saint-Louis in France, and the György Ligeti Saal in Graz.
Founded in October 2007, the Linos Piano Trio studied at the Guildhall and then at the Musikhochschule Hannover with Oliver Wille and Markus Becker. The ensemble has also received the guidance of Sir András Schiff, Peter Cropper, Ferenc Rados, Rainer Schmidt and Eberhard Feltz. The trio first came to prominence in the Tunnell Trust Showcase for Young Musicians, and in 2014 was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize for an outstanding ensemble.
The Linos Piano Trio recorded the complete Piano Trios by C.P.E. Bach to celebrate the 300th anniversary of his birth, and the CDs will be released by CAvi-music this summer.
