Oct 1, 2016 The Swiss Piano Trio with a new cellist

Since 16 years, Sébastien Singer has been the cellist of the Swiss Piano Trio. Because of a long-term ailment of his right wrist, he had unfortunately to leave this position in summer. We are very sorry about this and wish him all the best. We would also like to thank him for the long and nice period together with many successful concerts, many CD recordings and many exciting experiences during our trips! The Swiss Piano Trio found a brilliant successor with cellist Alexander Neustroev who stands for continuity within the change. Alexander Neustroev was a student of David Geringas and was "Best Russian cellist" in the 1997 Rostropovich competition in Paris. One year later, he was awarded a diploma of the Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow and a first prizewinner of the 4th International Australasian Adam Cello Festival &amp; Competition in Christchurch, New Zealand. Since 1999, he is second solo-cellist in the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich and has appeared regularly as a chamber musician. We welcome Alexander as a new member of the Swiss Piano Trio and we are looking forward to all projects to come!

Biography

The Swiss Piano Trio with Martin Lucas Staub, piano, Angela Golubeva, violin and Sasha Neustroev, violoncello has gathered a remarkable reputation both among experts and the public as an ensemble of outstanding balance and technical perfection whose interpretations electrify with emotional power and their rich and colourful sound. So, there is no surprise that the US-magazine Fanfare recently described the Swiss Piano Trio as „one of the very top piano trio ensembles on today’s stage“.


In summer 2016, Sébastien Singer after many years as cellist of the Swiss Piano Trio had to leave this position because of medical reasons. His brilliant successor as a cellist, Sasha Neustroev stands for continuity within the change. The Swiss Piano Trio won first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta (Italy) in 2003 and at the Johannes Brahms Competition (Austria) in 2005. In the same year, the Trio won the Swiss Ambassador’s Award at Wigmore Hall. Today, the Swiss Piano Trio is one of the most acclaimed chamber ensembles of its generation.


The Swiss Piano Trio has received important artistic impulses from Menahem Pressler (Beaux Arts Trio), Valentin Berlinsky (Borodin Quartet), from the Vienna Altenberg Trio, the Trio di Milano and the Amadeus Quartet.


Founded in 1998, the ensemble has given many concerts in 40 countries in all continents. Highlights have included performances in concert halls such as the Zurich Tonhalle, Victoria Hall Geneva, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Great Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky-Conservatory, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Teatro Teresa Carreño Caracas, the Teatro Coliseo Buenos Aires, QPAC Brisbane or the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing.


In performances of triple concertos, the Swiss Piano Trio performs as a soloists’ ensemble together with orchestras such as the Russian National Orchestra, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine, the Queensland Orchestra Brisbane, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and many more. The musicians regularly accept invitations to perform at renowned festivals such as the Ottawa Chamberfest, the Menuhin Festival Gstaad, Esbjerg Chamber Music Festival, Bastad Chamber Music Festival, the Festival of the Sound or the MusicFest Vancouver and give masterclasses in many countries.


Numerous recordings for radio, television and on disc with works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Robert and Clara Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Dvořák, as well as piano trios by the Swiss composers Paul Juon, Frank Martin and Daniel Schnyder document the artistic activities of the ensemble. From 2011, the Swiss Piano Trio has issued its recordings on the German audite label. These recordings were received enthusiastically by critics and the public and are getting regularly awards in international magazines. The most recent publications include world premiere recordings of so far unknown romantic piano trios by Eduard Franck and Volume I of the complete works for piano trio by Beethoven.


Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Swiss Piano Trio in 2008, the festival KAMMERMUSIK BODENSEE was created: its artistic director is the pianist of the ensemble, Martin Lucas Staub.
