Praised for its “transparent, stylish and homogenous” playing and “elegant, in-depth” interpretations, the Stefan Zweig Trio is quickly establishing itself as one of the most exciting up-and-coming ensembles of today.
Based in Vienna, the trio was established in 2012 and unites three passionate chamber musicians with a broad range of experience. The members of the group are graduates of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and the Paris Conservatoire, and are laureates of major international competitions including ARD, Sendai, and the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.
The ensemble is a member of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) and enjoys regular artistic guidance from notable musicians such as Johannes Meissl, Avedis Kouyoumdjian, Hatto Beyerle and Miguel Da Silva.
In January 2015 the Stefan Zweig Trio made its London debut at the Wigmore Hall with a recital within the annual ECMA showcase and the following month they went on to win the first prize and the audience prize at the 6th Intenational Joseph Haydn Competition in Vienna. Highlights of the past season included recitals at the reputed Kammermusik Hannover Concert Society and the Nürtingen Master Series, as well as a debut recital at the Musikverein in Vienna.
Through the trio’s choice of name, the three musicians sought to underline their affinity for the longstanding musical tradition of Vienna and the vivid emotional oeuvre of Stefan Zweig.
