Quotes & Highlights

“Extending right through the concert was the encouraging zest of the performers: their largeness in every musical dimension of color, dynamic range and expression, and their consistently well balanced togetherness as an ensemble.” —New York Times

Larissa Groeneveld, cello

The Osiris Trio was founded at the end of the 1980s, at a time when the interest among young musicians in classical piano trios was on the wane. After their debut in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, playing, among other pieces, Mendelssohn’s second trio, the new piano trio had a fiery development and was awarded the recently-established Philip Morris Finest Selection Prize in 1992. An ever-increasing number of concerts enabled the musicians to broaden their repertoire and to equip themselves with a solid foundation. In 1997, the trio was once again awarded a prestigious honor: the Annie Bosboom Award from the Kersjes van de Groenekanfonds.
