Trio Ondine
Type: Concert
Date: Sunday 22 June 2003

Trio Ondine

Martin Qvist Hansen piano
Erik Heide violin
Jonathan Slaatto cello

Haydn: Trio in C major
Ravel: Trio in A minor
Beethoven: The Archduke Piano Trio


The final concert of the 2003 festival was given by the Ondine Piano Trio, formed in Copenhagen in 1999.

Their programme was such a delight that it is easily understood why this talented group of young people had already won the Broadwood Piano Competition in 2000, the prestigious Parkhouse Award in London in 2001, and in the same month the First International Joseph Haydn Competition where they also received the prize for the best Haydn interpretation.

So dynamic, committed, intelligent, musical is their playing that it felt as though the audience was sitting on the edge of its seat not to miss a single note of the Haydn Trio in C Major, the Archduke Trio by Beethoven and Ravel's Trio in A Minor.

It was a fitting end to a festival founded in 1989 to celebrate the life of David Parkhouse, a renowned pianist and chamber music player, and in whose memory the Parkhouse Award has been instigated.
