The Oberon Trio was founded in 2006. Shortly after the ensemble’s premier concert, the Flensburger Tageblatt already credited the Oberon Trio with “enormous interpretive abilities, which testify to the enchanting ripeness and stylistic command of this new ensemble.” Meanwhile, Oberon Trio has given performances at the Berliner Philharmonie, the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, the Konzerthaus Dortmund and Esterházy Palace, among others, as well as in Italy, Bulgaria, Israel, India, Egypt and the Ukraine.
Its three members are committed to offering performances of lesser-known compositions alongside with established masterpieces. Their repertoire extends from piano trios by CPE Bach and Joseph Haydn, the pioneers of the medium, to those by Jörg Widmann and Charlotte Bray, whose trios were recorded by the ensemble for the first time. Oberon Trio also collaborates regularly with chamber music partners such as Tabea Zimmermann, Ian Bostridge, Christoph Prégardien and Shirley Brill.
A special passion of the Oberon Trio is the establishment of greater intimacy between the performers and the public. Through moderated concerts and by publishing their own programme notes of performed works among other approaches, they provide listeners with an insight into their working process and the background of their interpretations.
On November 19, 2022, the Oberon Trio invites you to the TRIOGIPFEL E.T.A.200. Together with the Amatis Trio, the Morgenstern Trio and the actress Stella Maria Adorf, the ensemble celebrates the poet, composer and caricaturist E.T.A. Hoffmann, whose death anniversary in 2022 is the 200th. The program includes works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, two world premieres by Britta Byström and Frank Zabel – and, of course, music and texts by the jubilarian E.T.A. Hoffmann. For more information, visit www.triogipfel.de

„Ich wandle still, bin wenig froh,
Und immer fragt der Seufzer, wo?
Im Geisterhauch tönt’s mir zurück,
“Dort, wo du nicht bist, dort ist das Glück.”
Georg Philipp Schmidt von Lübeck, Des Fremdlings Abendlied
Hardly any subject had such great significance in the Romantic period as that of the wanderer. Wandering symbolises searching and fathoming, contemplation and observation, reflection, transformation, the search for meaning and identity.
