London-based piano trio committed to diverse and imaginative programming
Trio Balthasar is a new chamber group. Committed to imaginative, diverse programming, they explore established classics of the piano trio repertoire next to less familiar work. Since their launch at Wigmore Hall in 2022 they have appeared at the Harrogate International Festival, the Rye Festival, Petworth Festival and the Kirker Music Festival on Ischia. The name Balthasar was initially suggested as a homage to the German baroque architect Balthasar Neumann, and with Balthasar also the name of one of the Wise Men in the Nativity story, there developed the idea of three men on a journey, bearing gifts. Each member of the Trio Balthasar has been praised for their vivacity, emotional depth and breathtaking playing.
‘Trio Balthasar work seamlessly together. Each member is exceptionally talented in their own field.’
