The Vienna Piano Trio was one of the most noted ensembles of its type to emerge in the last decade of the 20th century. The trio is particularly successful in repertory by composers closely associated with Austria, such as Brahms, Schubert, and Haydn, and with Dvorák, who had close links with these composers. Its playing exhibits the traditional Viennese sentimentality and is alert to the nuances of the folk music traditions that appear in the works of all these composers. It has toured extensively in northern Europe, Britain, Italy, South Africa, and the United States. During the 2006-2007 season, the trio began a residency at the Wiener Konzerthaus and in 2011, it appeared again at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. Later recordings included Haydn’s piano trios and a live effort on MDG in 2011.
