Join the Austrian-based Amatis Piano Trio, returning to London for a concert at Kimber Road Academy. The Amatis Trio are German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd, and Dutch pianist Mengjie Han. Founded in Amsterdam in 2014, and currently based in Salzburg, they are celebrated for their energy, insight, creativity, communication and passion. The Trio is regarded as one of the leading ensembles of its generation and were named as ‘Artists to Watch’ by Gramophone Magazine.
The Amatis Trio has performed in 43 countries across five continents, and has won many major international competitions and awards. They are former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and were selected as ECHO Rising Stars (European Concert Hall Organisation) by Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Köln Philharmonie, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and Dortmund Konzerthaus. The trio has been awarded some of the most prestigious music prizes from around the world, including the Kersjesprijs of the Netherlands and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship award.
“Their virtuosity and musicality is of absolute world class.” (Schweizer Tagblatt)
In addition to performances at many of the world’s leading festivals, including the BBC Proms, Verbier Festival, and the Edinburgh International Festival, the trio are regularly invited as soloists in triple concerto repertoire, appearing with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, BBC Wales, and Frankfurt Museums Orchestra. They are currently Artists in Residence at Cambridge University, UK.
Both Lea and Sam play on very fine Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume instruments, kindly loaned by generous patrons through the Beares International Violin Society.
