OBERON TRIO

OBERON TRIO

The Oberon Trio was founded in 2006 and has performed in many of Europe’s most prestigious concert halls, such as the Berlin Philharmonie, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Dortmund Konzerthaus, and the Essen Philharmonie. The group is a frequent guest at festivals such as the Mozartfest in Augsburg, the Ludwigsburg Festival, and the Herbstgold Festival.

“The Oberon Trio moves listeners with a combination of technical mastery and thrilling emotional intensity,” according to FonoForum, and the Gramophone says, “It’s a scintillating performance from start to finish.”

These three musicians are committed to offering performances of lesser-known compositions alongside established masterpieces. Their repertoire extends from piano trios by CPE Bach and Joseph Haydn – the pioneers of the medium – to those by Jörg Widmann, Toshio Hosokawa and Charlotte Bray, whose trios were recorded for the first time by the ensemble. The trio also works together regularly with chamber music partners such as Tabea Zimmermann, Ian Bostridge, Christoph Prégardien, and Shirley Brill.

A special passion for the Oberon Trio is to establish greater intimacy between public and performers. Through moderated concerts, by publishing their own program-notes of the performed works, among other approaches, they provide listeners with insights into the processes and background of their interpretations.

The first album released by the Oberon Trio, entitled "Passacaglia," was recommended by hr2, mdr figaro, and NDR Kultur. Their second CD appeared in 2016 under the title "Oberon Celebrates Shakespeare." The magazine Das Orchester commented: "Featured here is an ensemble that merits serious attention: [the three musicians] display captivating technical virtuosity, musical verve, and consummate chamber music coordination." The trio’s third CD, “Duality”, appeared in 2020. It contains works by Haydn, Schumann, and Copland, as well as the first recording of a trio by Toshio Hosokawa. The album was one of Journal Frankfurt’s top recommendations, and ORF (Austrian Radio) noted, “With a comprehensive engagement with the works, this recording persuasively demonstrates interpretational mastery and maturity.” RBB Kultur awarded the CD five stars and wrote, “With an imaginative concept and, most importantly, brilliant musicality, the ensemble successfully reveals the dualities inherent in the four works recorded here.”
