“The Storioni Trio is the flagship of Dutch culture,” said a reviewer for NRC Handelsblad (NRC), a daily evening newspaper published in the Netherlands by NRC Media.
The trio has established itself as one of the leading Dutch chamber music ensembles, with concerts in Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Wigmore Hall.
The trio offers an expansive repertoire ranging from Haydn and Mozart via Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel and Shostakovich, to stimulating works by contemporary composers.
Composed of pianist Bart van de Roer, violinist Wouter Vossen and cellist Marc Vossen, the trio has developed over the years by working with many musicians, including Isaac Stern and Ralph Kirshbaum as well as members of the Emerson Quartet and the Vermeer Quartet. They also have performed chamber music with various artists, such as Gidon Kremer, Dimitri Sitkovetsky, Nobuko Imai and Emma Johnson.
Additionally, they also were invited to play as soloists with the Munchner Kammerorchester, the RTE Orchestra Irland, Musikkolegium Winterthur, Orchestre de Chambre de Wallonie and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra.
As artistic director of the annual Storioni Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands, the Storioni Trio annually brings together renowned musicians from all over the world performing unique chamber music programs of the highest caliber.
