Lane Series Presents: Trio con Brio Copenhagen
Hailing from Denmark, Trio con Brio Copenhagen (Soo-Jin Hong, violin; Soo-Kyung Hong, cello; Jens Elvekjaer, piano) formed in 1999 and has gained a reputation for the freshness of its approach to the core piano trio repertoire. The trio is also keen on exploring compositions outside of the core repertoire and approaches each piece from a place of curiosity, respect, and tradition. The ensemble has won most of the international competitions for piano trio, including the ARD (Munich), Vittorio Gui (Florence) and Norway’s Trondheim Competition. In January, 2015, the Trio became the first ensemble to receive one of Denmark’s most prestigious music awards, the P2 Artists Prize. They serve as artistic directors of the Copenhagen Chamber Music Festival, the Chamber Music Festival on Lundsgaard Estate, and the Hellerup Chamber Music Society and are in great international demand. The program includes the Ravel Piano Trio; Piano Trio No. 1 in B Major, Op. 8, by Brahms; and Piano Trio No. 1 in G Major, “Zingarese,” by Haydn.
