- Trio Vitruvi returns to Schubert's gem, giving us the original (longer) version of the score in an impassioned reading.
Schubert's great E flat major trio had its first performance on December 26, 1827 at a concert in the Musikverein with the legendary violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh, who had given first performances of Beethoven’s five last string quartets earlier in the decade.  
Niklas Walentin (CH/DK), Alexander McKenzie (AU/DK) and Jacob la Cour (DK) have performed critically acclaimed concerts in Denmark, China, Russia, France, Austria, Portugal, Belarus and Germany in halls such as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Mariinsky Theatre, Salle Cortot and the Danish National Radio. 

Trio Vitruvi won both first prize and the audience prize at the Danish National Radio’s Chamber Music Competition 2014. After yet another first prize at the Jurmala International Music Competition 2014 the trio has since received awards from the royal family of Denmark, the Sonning Foundation and the National Arts Council “The Young Elite”. 

Alongside playing concerts and tours Trio Vitruvi works intensely with their mentor, violist and founding member of the Alban Berg Quartet, Hatto Beyerle and works with the world class tutors of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA). Niklas, Alexander and Jacob are based in Copenhagen and continue also to work with Professor Tim Frederiksen.

Trio Vitruvi has their Wigmore Hall debut in January 2017 and will release their debut CD recording at Carnegie Hall in 2018.

Since spring 2015, Trio Vitruvi has been a part of ECMA, European Chamber Music Academy. Trio Vitruvi has as well, just been invited to be a part of the cellist, Prof. Jérôme Pernoo’s Centre de Musique de Chambre while studying Perfectionnement de Musique de Chambre at Ecole Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot, Paris.
