Recognised as one of Germany’s most outstanding ensembles, the Xyrion Trio plays with passionate intensity, exuberance, subtlety of dynamic expression and the ability to illuminate the repertoire through the strongly individual personalities of its members. Soon after its formation in 2001 the trio was invited to appear in major musical capitals and international festivals throughout the world, including the Beethovenfest Bonn, Ludwigsburger Schloßkonzerte, and Rheinische Musikfest. The trio’s cycle of complete works by Antonín Dvořák for piano and strings was presented in the Liederhalle in Stuttgart, Sevilla, Ulm and in other European cities to outstanding critical acclaim.

The ensemble’s début recording on the Naxos label (8.557723) the first of five CDs presenting the complete Beethoven Trio cycle, was named Editor’s Choice of the Month for MusicWeb by Colin Clarke and was awarded the Supersonic Prize of Pizzicato magazine in Luxemburg. Germany’s leading Hifi magazine, Fono Forum, hailed the “vibrant and glowing” performances of Beethoven’s Opus 70 Trios as a major addition to the catalogue.

Other notable Xyrion Trio appearances worldwide have included a tour of Germany performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Orchestre Sinfonique de Liège and its chief conductor Louis Langree, a 10-city celebrity tour of New Zealand, concerts on the cruise ship MS Deutschland as well as concerts throughout Germany, Switzerland, Spain and France. Since 2007 the ensemble has assumed the artistic directorship of the Andernacher Musiktage which takes place every year in May.
