Piano Trios from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries by Haydn, Schubert and Shostakovich are played by the excellent Busch Trio. Named after the legendary violinist Adolf Busch, this young piano trio has emerged as one of the leading piano trios among the new generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across Europe.
Since its formation in London in 2012 the Trio has developed an extensive performing schedule across Europe’s leading concert halls and festivals.
The Trio are recording, to critical acclaim, all the chamber music for piano and strings by Dvorak. Their debut CD of Dvorak’s trios received a 5-star review in the Diapason magazine.
… what impressed most was the group’s effortless musicianship and unity of thought and attack. The threesome even seemed to be breathing in synch.
