Notes and Editorial Reviews

Schubert's eminently Viennese Trio op.100 offers an ideal contrast with Brahms's very German op.101. The pairing of these two demanding works reflects the eclecticism of the youthful Fortuna Piano Trio. Founded early in 2007, the Fortuna Piano Trio brings together three musicians whose careers as chamber music performers and soloists had already taken them to the leading international venues. The trio came to the attention of Emmanuel Ax during a masterclass session at the Académie Musicale de Villecroze, and was subsequently selected by the CIDIM (Italian Committee for Classical Music) to take part in a concert tour of South America (Brazil, Chile, Argentine and Uruguay) in September 2008. A regular guest in major European concert Read more halls, the Fortuna Piano Trio performs the masterpieces of the repertoire while also attaching great importance to contemporary Italian music. In addition to this, the members of the trio have also made successful transcriptions of orchestral works for their formation. Read less
