The David Trio from Italy, First Prize and Audience Choice Prize winners of the 2006 International Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition, is embarking on an American tour and will be appearing in a concert sponsored by Chesapeake Music on October 30, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD. The David Trio will perform perennial favorites such as Franz Schubert’s Notturno in E-flat major, Op. 148 (D897), Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Trio No. 1 in E-flat major, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50.
The Trio, having received its first commendation at the International Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition, has enjoyed great success in Europe, becoming one of the most important chamber music groups in Italy. Since its beginning in 2003, the Trio found inspiration and grew up under the guidance of international musical luminaries such as the Altenberg Trio Wien and Hatto Beyerle. At the same time, the group was chosen to represent the European Chamber Music Academy. The David Trio also won First Prize and the Bösendorfer Prize at the International Competition for Chamber Music F.J. Haydn in Vienna and First Prize at the Yellow Springs, OH International Chamber Music Competition.
The David Trio was awarded with a fellowship from Borletti-Buitoni Trust (London), which supported the Trio’s career and helped sponsor the first recording of the complete Schubert Trios on the Altara label. The recording is considered one of the best interpretations of these masterworks. Recently, the David Trio recorded the Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich trios for the Stradivarius label. The trio’s next release, this year, will be the complete Brahms Trios and the Trio of Arensky on the Stradivarius label.
