“...we have many good trios today, but some are really exceptional. I would like to mention in particular the Trio di Parma, whom I consider the best ensemble in Italy at present, having won many important international competitions…” – D. De Rosa – Simphonia

Parma is not only renowned for its exquisite gastronomie and products like parmigiano reggiano, prosciutto di Parma and anolini in brodo but as an extremely sophisticated city, home to a rich musical tradition, the tradition that stems from Verdi and Toscanini!
The Trio di Parma was formed in 1990 at the A. Boito Conservatory of music in Parma. The Trio has won the highest  acclaim at the Concorso Internazionale Vittorio Gui in Florence, as well as the international chamber music
competitions of Melbourne, ARD Munich and Lyon. In 1994, they were awarded the Abbiati Prize by the Italian National Association of Music Critics. The Trio di Parma has been a guest of many important musical institutions both at home in Italy and in other countries (Philarmonie in Berlin, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus in Vienna, St Petersburg Philarmonic etc). The trio also performed in, Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Ayres as well as in Dublin, Los Angeles, Hamburg, Washington DC, Adelaide, Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
The programme comprises two works by two great romantic composers: Schumann and Schubert. Schumann composed three trios for violin, cello and piano: The first of these, in D minor, is generally regarded as the strongest work of the three.
Schubert’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat major was composed in 1827 during the greatest musical period of his life. It is a
gigantic masterpiece that, with Beethoven?s Archduke, could be considered among the greatest piano trios in the traditional repertory. It is colossal in length and breadth, wealthy in thematic ideas, with constant transformations and ingenious details of construction. A typical performance runs to nearly forty-five minutes. Like much of Schubert?s “late” music, it is grand and profound in a way that goes well beyond the relatively modest context in which he wrote. UNMISSABLE!
