Trio con Brio Copenhagen Premieres Triple Concerto

 

On 21 January 2016 Trio con Brio Copenhagen - the leading international piano trio in the northern territory - premieres Bent Sørensen's concerto for piano trio and orchestra; "L'isola della citta", a co-commission between the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival. Bent Sørensen is widely recognised as one of Scandinavia's leading living composers and it is a great honour for the trio to perform his new work. The Norwegian premier will take place during the Chamber Music Festival in September.
The trio has already premiered a triple concerto by Swedish Sven-David Sandström in Copenhagen, and they performed the piece in Stockholm and South Jutland, Denmark as well.
Trio con Brio Copenhagen is known and recognized for its active role in contemporary music life; commissioning and performing pieces by important composers of today. The trio has also made its mark for the always fresh approach to traditional repertoire and has recently released a CD with piano trios by Tchaikovsky and Smetana on the Orchid label.
