The three players combine to create a gloriously balanced sound, the sensitivity of Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han a wonderful counterpoint to the exuberant energy of British cellist Samuel Shepherd and the delicate precision of German violinist Lea Hausmann. Known for playing intense and often highly charged programmes, with a repertoire spanning from Haydn to Shostakovich, the trio is equally committed to contemporary works, in 2015 founding the Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize to encourage young composers to further the repertoire. On this tour they will premiere a new work by Irish composer Amanda Feery, commissioned by Music Network. Always lyrical, often surprising, catch this trio while you can!
