Trio con Brio Copenhagen
“Glowing reports hold true. The Trio con Brio Copenhagen clearly occupies a lofty perch in today’s musical scene.” – Washington Post “From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate – aspects that this performance delivers with compelling panache.” – The Strad Acknowledged as one of the finest piano trios in the world, the Trio con Brio Copenhagen is about to enter a banner year – 2019 will mark their twentieth anniversary. For a group that views each new year as a call to deepen and enrich their interpretations, it seems a fitting time to take their measure of one of the supreme journeys a piano trio can take; starting in May 2018, Orchid Classics will be releasing their multi-volume traversal of the complete Beethoven Piano Trios. The Trio was born out of an idea of the coming together of ‘musical pairs’ – of the two Korean-born sisters, Soo-Kyung Hong (cello) and Soo-Jin Hong (violin), with Soo-Kyung and her husband, Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer. They quickly gained a reputation for their fresh and contemporary approach to the core repertoire. “Works by Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms are transformed in their hands into the alive-and-kicking music of today” said Danish Broadcasting’s Esben Tange. Winning almost all of the major competitions for piano trio – including the ARD (Munich), Vittorio Gui (Florence), Trondheim Competition (Norway), Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson (USA), Allianz Prize (Germany) and the prestigious “P2 Artists Prize” (Denmark) – they are regularly heard at the world’s leading venues and concert series. Among these, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Wigmore Hall, Berlin Pierre Boulez-Saal, Concertgebouw, Elphilharmonie Hamburg, Seoul Arts Centre, Louvre Paris and of course their beloved “home venues”, the Royal Library and the Tivoli Concert Hall, in Copenhagen.
