Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch

THURSDAY 18 OCTOBER, 2018

Join this terrific trio for an evening of Schubert, Beethoven and Dvořák

""

A rare chance to hear three of today’s leading musicians perform a trio together for this their first visit to Ireland. Renowned as soloists with the world’s finest orchestras, together they will perform a beautiful programme of works for piano, cello and violin by Schubert, Beethoven and Dvořák.

Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was founded in 2009 and comprises three of the finest international instrumentalists performing today.  Playing chamber music together at the Pablo Casals Prades Festival Hagai Shaham and Raphael Wallfisch recognised an immediate musical synergy. Arnon Erez joined them for trio concerts in Lucerne and the Netherlands later that year and the Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was established. Since 2009 the Trio have performed, broadcast and recorded widely throughout Europe and Israel, giving concerts in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, France, Israel and Spain. They perform regularly at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and they have been chosen by the Wigmore Hall to present the complete Beethoven Piano Trios in 2020, Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year.

The musicians know, with minute precision, how to guard the boundary between the intimacy of chamber music and the sweeping grandeur of a large-scale concert, only achievable by artists whose capacities and experience are on an equally high level.
