Piano Trios - Nos.1 & 9 (2007)

Schubert

Storioni Trio

Schubert completed his two piano trios between November 1827 and November 1828, the last year of his life. Despite his ill health, he still managed to write an incredible amount of compositions, and one masterpiece after the other flowed from his pen. Apart from the trios, within a few months’ time he wrote the great Symphony in C, the three last piano sonatas, the string quintet, the Lieder cycle Schwanengesang, the Fantasie for piano duet and the Mass in E flat.
Partially due to his awareness of his position as Vienna’s most prominent living composer, Schubert worked with confidence. His distinguished fellow citizen, Beethoven, had died on March 26, 1827; and Schubert had paid his respects to him by acting as torch-bearer at his funeral. After receiving a couple of requests in February 1828 from the music publishers Schott from Mainz and Probst from Leipzig to write some new works, Schubert happily offered them a series of new and substantial compositions two months later. However, the reactions must have disappointed him.

Storioni Trio

The Storioni Trio was founded in 1995 by Bart van de Roer (piano), Wouter Vossen (violin) and Marc Vossen (cello). The trio derives its name from the Laurentius Storioni violin from Cremona, which dates from 1794 and is played by Wouter Vossen. Marc Vossen plays a Giovanni Grancino cello from Milan, dating from 1700. In order to develop its ensemble-playing, the trio has worked over the years with great musicians such as Isaac Stern, Mstislav Rostropovich, Menahem Pressler, and Ralph Kirshbaum, as well as members of the Emerson Quartet and the Vermeer Quartet.
The Storioni Trio has established itself as the leading Dutch piano trio, with concerts in Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall and at various festivals like Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival, Mecklenburg Vorpommern Festival, Trio Festival in the Philharmonie Moscow and the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. The Storioni Trio offers an expansive repertoire ranging from Haydn and Mozart via Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel and Shostakovich, to exciting works by contemporary composers.
