Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Morgenstern Trio's second release for Azica Records highlights their passion for music with works by Frank Bridge, a new work composed for the trio by Pierre Jalbert, Ernest Bloch, and Ilham Baran. To name a piano trio after the popular nineteenth century German poet Christian Morgenstern was the inspiration of Catherine Klipfel, piano, Stefan Hempel, violin, and Emanuel Wehse, cellist, who met during their studies at the Folkwang Conservatory in Essen, Germany. After only two short years of working together, the Morgenstern Trio emerged on the German Music Scene by being awarded top prizes and awards, such as the prestigious US Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio Award in 2010. The Washington Post wrote: "the group displayed a Read more unanimity, polished technique and musical imagination that I thought had vanished from the scene with the demise of the Beaux Arts Trio".
