Trio Delyria was founded in the summer of 2020 in Frankfurt am Main/ Berlin by three Garman-based Israeli musicians, who came together at a challenging time with a shared love of the piano trio repertoire and the dream of exploring it together
Within a few months, the Trio began to study with Prof. Angelika Merle at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts and has since then gained substantial experience and recognition by performing in major venues such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt and Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, as well as featuring on different radio stations in Germany and in Israel. They have won prizes at national and international competitions, including the Bad Homburger Förderpreis für Kammermusik and the 2nd prize along with the audience award at the International Schumann Chamber Music Competition, leading to an invitation to perform again at the Alte Oper in 2023. Other highlights of the coming season include debut appearances in different concert series in Frankfurt am Main, Baden-Baden, Hannover, Madrid and throughout Israel.
The Trio is fortunate to receive lessons and advice from many of the top chamber music players and pedagogues in Germany and abroad. They are currently studying towards a Konzertexamen in the class of Angelika Merkle in Frankfurt and simultaneously attend the International Institute of Chamber Music at the Reina Sofia School in Madrid upon invitation of Günter Pichler, founder and primarius of the Alban Berg Quartett.
In the fall of 2022, the Trio released its debut CD with works by Felix Mendelssohn and Paul Ben-Haim.
Judith Stapf (violin), Arnau Rovira Bascompte (cello), Marco Sanna (piano)
Harmony, creativity and a thirst for discovery: this is what the piano trio Orelon, founded in Cologne in 2018, stands for. Violinist Judith Stapf, cellist Arnau Rovira and pianist Marco Sanna came together at the conservatoires in Cologne and Berlin. The members of the Trio Orelon are seeking harmony not only musically but also on a personal level. In doing so, they maintain an inquisitive and dynamic view of the works for their instrument combination and connect this with an irrepressible energy and desire for differentiated expression. Symphonic density, homogeneous sound, "chamber music intensity and emotionality" (FAZ) - these qualities were already attributed to the Trio Orelon shortly after its founding.
In July 2022 the Trio Orelon won the first prize and the special prize for “the best interpretation of the contemporary piece” at the competition “Franz Schubert und die Musik der Moderne” in Graz, Austria. The Trio Orelon is also a prize winner of the Schumann Competition in Frankfurt, the Premio Trio di Trieste and the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy University Competition 2021.
Concert tours take the Trio Orelon to renowned concert halls including the Tonhalle Düsseldorf, the Laeiszhalle Hamburg and the Gewandhaus Leipzig. The three musicians present their enthusiasm and curiosity for innovative and thematic programmes, in which they combine classical repertoire with lesser known and undiscovered works. In the course of their repertoire research, the Trio Orelon developed the project "Beethoven's Daughters”, which focuses on the literature of female composers and relates them to their predecessor Ludwig van Beethoven in moderated concerts.

Eunji Kim (violin), Ah-Yeon Nam (cello), Young Sun Choi (piano)
Based in South Korea, Trio Unio is made up of violinist Eunji Kim, cellist Ah-Yeon Nam, and pianist Young Sun Choi. The Latin word ‘unio’ means ‘unite,’ or ‘combine into one.’ This name corresponds to their musical goal: to perform and sound as a united, single ego. The members of Trio Unio share the same educational background by graduating from the same music schools: Yewon School, Seoul Arts High School, and Seoul National University. This shared experience enables them to understand and bond with each other.
All three members now are studying further in different countries: Korea, the USA, and Germany. The diverse musical experience gained in different countries has been adding significant variety to their music. As a 2nd prize winner of the 2022 Franz Schubert and Modern Music International Chamber Music Competition, Trio Unio has had many recitals in South Korea at venues such as Alpensia Concert Hall, LS Yongsan Tower Seoul, Ensemble Hall, Samik Art Hall, and Sharon Hall. Selected as one of the artists in ‘The House Concert’ series, they are going to have a recital in 2022. Trio Unio has had masterclasses from Jean-Marc Phillips-Varjabédian (Trio Wanderer), Hyo-Sun Lim (Ludwig Trio, Trio Gaspard), Jungran Lee, Jiyoon Park (Trio Jade), Svetlin Roussev, Leonard Elschenbroich, and Yeol Eum Son.
