Huge honour for Trio con Brio Copenhagen
Trio con Brio Copenhagen honoured with one of Denmark's highest awards
It has been announced that Trio con Brio Copenhagen has been awarded one of Denmark’s most prestigious honours – the Carl Nielsen and Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen Award for 2019.
The honorary awards of the foundation are Denmark’s largest one-off culture awards given to Danish artists, and consist of an endowment of €100,000.
The awards committee said the following of their decision:
For the past two decades, Trio con Brio Copenhagen has, at the highest international level, enriched Danish music life with sublime ensemble playing and deep well-considered interpretations in one of chamber music’s very major disciplines – The classical piano trio. Trio con Brio Copenhagen has gained a large faithful audience, which has become accustomed to the high expectations being met every single time. Over the past twenty years, it has been a great pleasure to follow the trio’s development and career, which has so far culminated with an excellent recording of Beethoven’s piano trios.
Congratulations indeed to the trio!
