Trio Zimmermann

The ensemble praised for its ravishing sound and commanding performances returns to the International Festival

Praised for its ravishing sound and commanding performances, Trio Zimmermann was formed in 2007 by violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltéra, each an internationally acclaimed soloist in his own right. The ensemble thrilled Festival audiences in 2010 with an all-Beethoven programme.

Despite its title, Mozart’s Divertimento in E flat is not light music at all – it is one of the towering achievements of chamber music. It is also one of Mozart’s noblest works, each instrument playing an equal role in conveying its warm-hearted intimacy.

Schoenberg’s String Trio is a remarkably intense and virtuosic piece, and Schubert’s single-movement Trio in B flat opens the concert on a generous, easy-going note.
