The string trio repertoire is a lot less known than that for quartet, yet it contains a number of blazing masterpieces. Among them is Mozart's E flat Divertimento - one of his greatest chamber pieces, described by Alfred Einstein as 'the finest, most perfect trio ever heard'. The 19-year-old Schubert's two string trios are much more modest in scope, but make a charming upbeat to the Mozart. This outstanding international ensemble's members come from the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK and they play in major venues all over Europe from Amsterdam's Concertgebouw to London's King's Place and Wigmore Hall.
