Piano Trio E.T.A. Awarded "SWR2 New Talent"

Piano Trio E.T.A. Awarded "SWR2 New Talent"

The music editors of SWR2 have awarded the piano trio E.T.A. the "SWR2 New Talent" 2023.

Three years of sponsorship

Over the course of three years, Elene Meipariani, violin, Till Schuler, cello, and Till Hoffmann, piano, will be promoted through concert recordings, media productions, and concert series, among other means.

"Trio E.T.A. had us captivated at the selection audition before they even played the first tone. Three young musicians entered the stage and exuded a positive energy, which was then musically charged by their playing," says jury member and head of music at SWR2 Martin Roth.

Appearances on radio and television

Among other things, an interview with the trio has already appeared on SWR2, they were featured in the "Music Piece of the Week" , and a report about the three musicians also appeared on SWR television in the program #Zusammenspielen.

There will be further appearances on March 14 at the SWR2 Mittagskonzert, on April 10 at the SWR2 Abendkonzert and on May 13 in Treffpunkt Klassik extra. Online content is available on the trio's Facebook- und Instagram page.

Piano trio at its best

Elene Meipariani (violin), Till Schuler (violoncello) and Till Hoffmann (piano) are dedicated to chamber music repertoire ranging from classical to contemporary music. In addition to masterpieces for piano trio, they are particularly interested in lesser-heard, interesting new discoveries as well as new music. Thus, in 2023, a work by the composer Isabel Mundry will be dedicated to the Trio E.T.A.

In 2021, the young ensemble won the prize of the German Music Competition. The prize winner CD E.T.A. spielt ("E.T.A. plays") was released by GENIUN in February 2023 with works by Joseph Haydn, Roman Pawollek, and Bedřich Smetana. Piano trio at its best with a well-balanced program of classical, passionate romantic and exciting new territory!

E.T.A. spielt was released in Edition Primavera, a GENUIN CD series featuring the winners of the German Music Competition.
