Amatis Piano Trio joins Interartists AmsterdamMarch 11th 2019
We’re very proud to announce that the Amatis Piano Trio joins Interartists Amsterdam for representation in the Benelux and Poland.
The Amatis Piano Trio was founded in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han. Only weeks after forming, the trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, which quickly lead to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw and concert engagements throughout the Netherlands.
Winners of the 2015 International Parkhouse Award in Wigmore Hall, the trio went on to win several international prizes and competitions. Most recently they were awarded 1st trio at the International Joseph Joachim Competition in Weimar, Germany and named Dutch Classical Talent 2016. Soon after they were selected as BBC New Generation Artists 2016-2018. For the 2018/2019 season the trio was selected as 'ECHO Rising Stars' by the European Concert Hall Organisation, following their nomination by the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Konzerthaus Dortmund and the Philharmonie Cologne which saw them perform in 23 of the most prestigious concert venues throughout Europe.
On the 11th February 2019 the Amatis Piano Trio received the Dutch Anton Kersjes Prize worth of € 50.000,- During the award ceremony in the Royal Concertgebouw they gave a short concert. Dutch newspaper NRC wrote:
"The biggest discovery was the Amatis Piano Trio, [...] that proved to be convincingly worthy of the Kersjes Prize with an emotional performance of Shostakovich's First Piano Trio. With British cellist Samuel Shepherd as the driving communicator, Dutch pianist Mengjie Han as the sharp rock in the surf and German violinist Lea Hausmann as the lyrical upper voice, the Amatis Trio combines a fresh cocktail of temperaments with ensemble refinement."
The Amatis Piano Trio has an impressive concert schedule. Some highlights for the coming months are a tour through India and concerts in Wiesbaden, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Cologne, Southbank Centre London, Porto, Konzerthaus Wien, Bozar Brussels on the 12th April, and the Concertgebouw on the 12th June. Next season they'll debut at the BBC Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival. The Amatis Trio will perform the Beethoven Triple Concerto with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and their debut CD comes out later this year.
