Trio EnVers



Nina Sunyer Vidal // Annemiek de Bruin // Vittoria Quartararo























Having met in 2014 at the very heart of Europe in the city of Cologne (Germany) while studying at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, the three musicians of Trio EnVers started working  and performing together more intensively since 2015.

Italy, Spain and the Netherlands are the countries they respectively come from, and their contribution from diverse cultural backgrounds  makes this young chamber music group in itself favorably divergent, yet probably exactly because of that – truly European.

“Discussion” is probably the keyword to understand the special creative energy of  Trio EnVers, in terms of exploring music through many different perspectives before finding a common interpretative solution, always avoiding the one standard way as well as the soft compromise.

Therefore came the plural meaning of the Trio´s name: something that goes towards or backwards, which found itself on the underside, maybe upside down and even against all odds….ultimately “EnVers”.

The unusual instrumental setting, a keyboard, a wind player and a string instrument, create a complex sound-color that inspired composers of all times, such as Mozart, who was the first to write a Trio for Clarinet, Viola and Piano – the legendary Kegelstatt-Trio K.498. The Repertoire of Trio EnVers embraces the classical music of Mozart and romantic music of Robert Schumann (Märchenerzählungen op.132) together with the modern Trio Hommage à R.Sch. by György Kurtág and does not stop to include new written pieces by current rising  composers.

This includes the work Dues Nimfes by Peruvian composer Daniel Cueto (b.1986), written especially for Trio EnVers, which was premiered at the Palau Güell in Barcelona in October 2017.
