Amatis Piano Trio Appointed as Resident Chamber Ensemble

last modified Sep 24, 2019 10:22 AM

The Faculty of Music is delighted to announce that the Amatis Piano Trio has been appointed as the new holders of the Chamber Music Residency, generously supported by Homerton College.

At Cambridge, they will work together with student composers to continue enriching the piano trio repertoire.  They will perform at West Road Concert Hall, Homerton College and elsewhere, and be available to coach and mentor chamber groups, ensembles and individual players within the University.

Founded in Amsterdam in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han, the Amatis Piano Trio today emerges as one of the leading piano trios among the new generation.  The Amatis Piano Trio has an enduring commitment to contemporary music, having in 2015 founded the Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize.

The Trio performs regularly at major concert venues across the world such as the Concertgebouw, the Elbphilharmonie and the Wigmore Hall. In the 2018/19 season they were ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) Rising Stars artists, and between 2016-2018 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists.
