Since their Wigmore Hall debut in 2006,
the Lendvai String Trio has had a busy schedule of concerts at major venues
throughout Europe, including several re-invitations to Wigmore Hall, recitals
at King's Place, the Barbican and Purcell Room in London, the Concertgebouw in
Amsterdam and Musikaliska in Stockholm.
In 2011 the trio was awarded the
prestigious Kersjes Prize in Holland, as well as being selected for the
Concertgebouw's Young Artist Series in Amsterdam; other previous successes
include winning awards from the Kirckman Concert Society, the Worshipful
Company of Musicians, Musician's Benevolent Fund, the Park Lane Group, and the
Concert Promoters Network in the UK. In 2005 they were selected for the Holland
Music Sessions 'New Masters on Tour', resulting in a series of concerts across
Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and the Netherlands. The trio
regularly perform at festivals in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland,
Austria and Sweden and their concerts have been broadcast by Dutch Radio 4,
Swedish Radio P2 and BBC Radio 3. Their debut CD 'Destination Paris' (2011,
Stone Records) received international acclaim as well as their recent recording
of the complete Beethoven String Trios (Stone Records) which was BBC Music
Magazine's Chamber Choice in June 2013.
The trio enjoys regular collaborations
with other artists and recent highlights have included concerts with oboists
Alexei Ogrintchouk and Nicholas Daniel, and pianists Paolo Giacometti, Charles
Owen, Alasdair Beatson and Martin Sturfält. As well as regularly commissioning
new works, the Lendvai String Trio are also keen to uncover and revive
'forgotten' and lesser known works for the genre.
