Dvorak - Piano trio No.4 in Eminor (‘Dumky’)
Named after the legendary violinist Adolf Busch, this young piano trio has emerged as the leading British piano trio among the new generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the UK and Europe.
Winners of the 2012 Royal Overseas League Competition, the trio went on to win several prizes including 2nd prize and the recording prize at the 2012 Salieri-Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition and the 3rd prize at the 2013 Pinerolo International Chamber Music Competition in Italy as well as the 2nd prize at the International Schumann Chamber Music Award in Frankfurt.
Since its formation in 2012 the trio has performed in places such as Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Two Moors Festival and Northern Chords Festival, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Sage Gateshead, and in the Netherlands, France and Germany, Switzerland and Italy and Denmark.
Their Wigmore Hall debut was received to critical acclaim and hailed as a “memorable performance showing The Busch Ensemble’s incredible unity, abundant facility and deep musical understanding”. Highlights of upcoming seasons include a tour of Scotland and collaborations with Michael Collins and Bruno Giuranna, recitals in Schumann Geselschaft Frankfurt, Southbank’s Purcell Room as well as a return to Wigmore Hall. Their much anticipated US debut tour in 2015 will include a performance at the Phillips Collection International Chamber Music Series in Washington DC.
