“Over and above Eggner Trio’s beautiful translucent clarity is their collective musical intelligence and insight.“ | The Sydney Morning Herald

The Austrian Eggner Trio is one of the most recognized and well-known of today's leading piano trios. Founded in 1997 by three brothers - Georg (violin), Florian (cello), and Christoph (piano) – the trio regularly performs in such distinguished venues as Wigmore Hall in London, or the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

The Eggner Trio has appeared on all major stages throughout Europe, in Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, the USA and quite frequently in Australia and New Zealand. International festivals in which they have performed include the Kissinger Summer, the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg, the Heidelberg Spring Festival, or the Chamber Music Festival in Lockenhaus.

The trio received international recognition in 2003 when they won the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition in Australia. In 2006, through the European Concert Hall Organisation “Rising Stars” series, they played concerts in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden, the Philharmonie in Cologne, the Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Musikverein in Vienna.

Besides playing chamber music, the three brothers have played as soloists in the triple concertos of Ludwig van Beethoven and Bohuslav Martinu, performing with the Orchestra Filharmonica dell‘Umbria (Italy), the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra (Australia), the South Bohemian Chamber Philharmonic of Budweis (Czech Republic), and the Tonkünstler Orchestra (Austria).

Recordings for Live Classics include the Beethoven trios op. 70/1 “Ghost Trio” and the “Archduke” Trio op. 97, for which they were awarded “Best Recording 2008” from Klassiek Centraal – as well as Mendelssohn’s trios op. 49 and op. 66.

For Gramola, they have recorded both piano trios by Shostakovich and the Ivan Eröd Trio op. 21. Also published there are the CD “Kaleidoskop” with modern works by Austrian composers Johannes Berauer, Sascha Peres, and Gerrit Wunder, as well as Brahms’ Trio op. 87 and Clara Schumann’s Trio op. 17, for which they were awarded “Pasticciopreis” in Radio Oesterreich 1. Also, and most recent, the complete piano trios composed by Werner Pirchner were released there with acclaim.

Georg Eggner performs on a violin built by Giovanni Pistucci (1895) and Florian Eggner on a cello of Carl Richter (1907).
