Parkhouse Award Presents the Amatis Piano Trio

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Enjoy music from the Amatis Piano Trio, winners of the London-based International Parkhouse Award in 2015.

The Amatis Piano Trio was founded in Amsterdam by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han.

Since winning the award, the trio have gone on to further success, including joining the roster of the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme 2016–2018 and ECHO Rising Stars 2018/2019 which provides concerts in all major venues throughout Europe.

Early on in their formation, they won the audience prize in the Amsterdam Grachten Festival Competition and were invited to the Trondheim International Chamber Music Academy where they worked and performed with distinguished musicians Daniel Hope (Beaux Arts Trio), Miguel da Silva (Ysaye Quartet) and Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet). Since then the trio has performed extensively in Europe, Indonesia, China and the USA.

The trio has worked with Trio Jean Paul, Lukas Hagen and Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Wolfgang Redik (Vienna Piano Trio) and Daniel Gaede (former concert master Vienna Philharmonic). They have received masterclasses from Anner Bylsma, Ib Hausmann, Imre Rohmann and Fabio Bidini, amongst others. The Amatis Piano Trio has been part of the European Chamber Music Academy since 2015.
