This young piano trio has emerged as one of the leading piano trios among the new generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across Europe. Omri Epstein “the group’s marvellously sensitive pianist”, Mathieu van Bellen, whose “silvery gleam darted eloquently”, and Ori Epstein, with whom “you felt in the grip of a warm hug”, have all won prizes in solo international competitions.
Winners of the 2012 Royal Overseas League Competition, the trio went on to win several prizes at international competitions including the Salieri-Zinetti Competition and the Pinerolo Competition in Italy as well as at the International Schumann Chamber Music Award in Frankfurt. They enjoyed the support of Kirckman Concert Society, Park Lane Group as well as being recipients of the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Ensemble Award among others. The trio has received guidance from distinguished artists such as Eberhard Feltz and Andras Schiff and are currently mentored by members of the Artemis Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels, where they are trio in residence.
At the Old Divinity School they'll perform:
Mozart: Piano Trio in G major, K496
Shostakovich: Piano Trio No.2
Schubert: Piano Trio in B flat major, D898
Doors open 7.30pm, concert begins at 8pm
Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Music has always been played at Kettle’s Yard. There are two pianos in the House at Kettle’s Yard and when it was a home to Jim and Helen Ede they used to hold small concerts. Now we continue to present concerts. While Kettle’s Yard is closed for our major building project we are holding concerts in the Old Divinity School at St John’s College in Cambridge.
