The Trio Boccherini was formed in 2014 as a result of various evening sightreading sessions that frequent the Berlin music scene. Today they are recognized as one of the most dynamic groups of this constellation. Suyeon Kang, violin, Vicki Powell, viola, and Paolo Bonomini, cello are dedicated to rediscovering and performing the veritable treasure trove of over five hundred works written for string trio. Although it boasts some of the greatest masterpieces, it includes many works that, unfortunately, are neglected and unknown to the public. In doing so, they endeavor to continually develop an honest, original and unified perception across all musical genres.

Natives of three different continents, each member contributes various aspects of their diverse musical upbringings. This colorful array of musical vocabulary and expression, in amalgamation with their shared European training, culminates in their unique and raw

The trio received important musical impulses from Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Hatto Beyerle, Günter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet), and Johannes Meissl, and they are an alumnus of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA, Austria). Their international concert activity includes appearances at Wigmore Hall, the Konzert­haus Berlin, the Bach­Archiv Leipzig, MITO SettembreMusica, the Flanders Festival Ghent and the Canberra International Music Festival. As individuals, they are highly in demand as chamber musicians and are also inter­nationally active as soloists, orchestral leaders and pedagogues.

The Trio plays on a set of old Italian instruments courtesy of the Fondation Boubo­ Music (Switzerland): a violin by Nicola Amati, a viola by Michele Deconet and a cello by Andrea Guarneri. Additionally, Suyeon Kang plays on a modern violin built by Julia Maria Pasch, and Vicki Powell plays on a viola by Samuel Zygmuntowicz.
