Trio Con Brio Copenhagen
March 14, 2022 | 7:30 pm
Due to the backlog currently impacting the U.S. immigration system because of the pandemic, Trio Con Brio Copenhagen’s fall 2021 tour has been moved to spring 2022. The ensemble’s UGA performance has been rescheduled for March 14, 2022. Please contact the box office with any questions or concerns.
Acknowledged as one of the finest piano trios in the world, Trio con Brio Copenhagen was born out of an idea of the coming together of musical pairs: two Korean-born sisters, cellist Soo-Kyung Hong and violinist Soo-Jin Hong, with Soo-Kyung and her husband, Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer. The ensemble has gained a reputation for a fresh and contemporary approach to the core repertoire and has won virtually all of the major competitions for piano trio. The group’s first appearance in Athens promises to be a thrilling evening of music in which the players’ virtuosity, artistry, and verve will be on full display.
Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
