Bent Sørensen´s Triple Concerto “L´Isola della Citta” was written for our trio and premiered in January 2016 to great critical acclaim. Bent Sørensen just received the Grawemeyer Award, one of the greatest prizes in the musical world, for this unique and enigmatic work! Listen to it on New York Times website: www.nytimes.com

Furthermore the trio will perform on several tours in USA and Germany, concerts in Madrid, Rencontre Musicales d´Evian and music societies in Denmark. In summer our festival Kerteminde will have its second edition at the amazing manor house in Kerteminde, Funen!
Our next CD-project will start soon with the first recordings of the complete Beethoven Piano Trios on the Orchid Label.
We are looking forward to a 3 years period digging into every note that Beethoven has written for piano trio. The culmination will be in 2019 in connection with our 20-years anniversary with the release of a complete Beethoven box and an exciting interactive project in cooperation with the Danish Radio – Beethoven ZOOM.
“From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate – aspects that this performance delivers with compelling panache.”
