Alongside the string quartet, the piano trio reached maturity during the Classical period with masterpieces from the pens of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. As a virtuoso pianist and an accomplished string player, Mozart composed several remarkable trios in which violin, cello and piano interact as equal partners, their apparently effortless eloquence the fruit of much careful preparation.

This first disc of the complete trios is coupled with the charming Divertimento, Mozart’s first mature work in this form.

Formed in 1997, the Kungsbacka Piano Trio is rapidly gaining an enviable reputation as one of the most outstanding ensembles of their generation and has a flourishing international career. Since winning First Prize in the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, the Trio has appeared at major festivals and venues throughout the world. In 2003 they took part in the ECHO Rising Stars scheme, and were invited to become BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists in 2000.

“The Kungsbacka Trio adds to its growing reputation with a performance that combines polish, freshness and inventive characterization… a sympathetic, thoroughly enjoyable performance.” The Daily Telegraph
