We are delighted to welcome the established Salzburg based Amatis Trio for an evening concert at the ACF London.
The trio appears in all major concert halls and is considered one of the leading piano trios of its generation. Lea Hausmann (violin), Samuel Shepherd (violoncello), and Mengjie Han (piano) form an electric fusion of energy and are praised by the international press for their insight, creativity and unique communication on stage.
Recognised early on as BBC New Generation Artists and ECHO Rising Stars, the trio quickly emerged as one of the top chamber music ensembles of its kind. The Amatis Trio has been awarded some of the most prestigious music prizes around the world, including the Kersjesprijs of the Netherlands and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship award. Furthermore, they are guest faculty members at Cambridge University since 2019 and were appointees of the Irene R. Miller Piano Trio Residency at the University of Toronto, Canada.
In addition to performances in the worlds leading festivals including the BBC Proms, Verbier Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival, the trio has performed in over 40 countries across five continents. The Amatis Trio continuously bridges the gap between chamber music and other artistic forms, attracting new audiences for classical music.
As sought- after soloists, the trio members have collaborated with esteemed orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra London, BBC Wales and Frankfurt Museumsorchester.
In 2018, the Amatis Trio released their first CD on cAvi Records, featuring compositions by Britten, Enescu and Ravel. Their second album, a rendition of Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du temps with clarinettist Ib Hausmann, earned them a 2023 OPUS Klassik nomination and was hailed by critics as "one of the most important chamber music recordings of recent times."
The trio continuously seeks to explore new soundscapes and is an enthusiastic supporter of contemporary music.
Please note: The full programme will be announced closer to the date.
