Vienna Piano Trio

Biography

Active: 1988 - ; Austria
The Vienna Piano Trio was one of the most noted ensembles of its type to emerge in the last decade of the twentieth century.

Two of them are Viennese, both born in 1966: Stefan Mendl, the pianist and Marcus Trefny, the cellist. The violinist, Wolfgang Redik, was born in Graz in 1968. The joined to found the Vienna Piano Trio in the autumn of 1988. Matthias Gredler replaced Marcus Trefny in the summer of 2001.

The group first
Read more obtained coaching from two of the world's great trio ensembles, the Beaux Arts Trio and the Haydn Trio Wien. Individually and as a group they intensively studied chamber music interpretation with such great chamber performers as Isaac Stern, Jaime Laredo, Ralph Kirschbaum, and the members of the Guarnieri and LaSalle Quartets.

They made their debut appearances in 1989. Since then they have won numerous international competition prizes. Their London debut was in 1994 at Wigmore Hall. In the same year they first appeared in the United States in Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall. They were invited to appear in late 1996 in performances of all of Franz Schubert's works for piano trio, part of a festival in observation of the great composer's 200th anniversary. These performances took place in Wigmore Hall and in the Brahms-saal of the Musikverein in Vienna.

In 1993 the group made its recording debut in the complete Brahms Piano Trios on the Naxos label. Since 1995 it has recorded for Nimbus. Their first release on that imprint was in Dvorák's Op. 21 and Op. 90 Trios, which was chosen as a BBC Radio 3 Record Review Critics' Choice for 1996.

The trio is particularly successful in repertory by composers closely associated with Austria, such as Brahms, Schubert, and Haydn, and with Dvorák, who had close links with these composers. Their playing exhibits the traditional Viennese sentimentality, and is alert to the nuances of the folk music traditions that appear in the works of all these composers.

They have toured extensively in northern Europe, Britain, Italy, South Africa, and the United States. Read less
