“From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate – aspects that this performance delivers with compelling panache.” – Strad
Founded in Vienna in 1999 with the concept of pairs coming together, the two Korean sisters, and Soo-Kyung and Jens (who are now married), have since then been exploring the piano trio repertoire with freshness and curiosity as well as with respect and reflection. In particular they have been gaining a reputation for the freshness of their approach to the core repertoire: “works by Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms are transformed in their hands into the alive-and-kicking music of today” – Esben Tange, editor at DR P2.
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)
