Oberon Trio

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, the trio has given performances, among others, at the Berliner Philharmonie, the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, the Konzerthaus Dortmund, and Esterházy Palace, as well as in Italy, Bulgaria, Israel, India, Egypt, and the Ukraine. These three musicians are committed to offering performances of lesser-known compositions alongside 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 for the first time by the ensemble. The trio also works together regularly with chamber music partners such as Tabea Zimmermann, Ian Bostridge, Christoph Prégardien, and Shirley Brill.

A special passion for the Oberon Trio is to establish greater intimacy between public and performers. Through moderated concerts, by publishing their own program-notes of the performed works, among other approaches, they provide listeners with insights into the processes and background of their interpretations.

With regard to Beethoven’s year 2020, the Oberon Trio has initiated a new project: Beethoven’s piano trios and arrangements for piano trio form a cosmos of their own within the oeuvre, which the trio tracks down in a compact form and both the significance of Beethoven for the genre and vice versa the versatility of the genre as a form of expression of Beethoven to this day explored.
