The Trio was founded in 1998 and consists of violoncello, double-bass and piano. It owes its name to the fact that this is an ‘impossible’ and unusual combination.
All members are graduates from the Musikhochschule Wien, and in fact the double-bass player is now principal double-bass player of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. As there are hardly any works written for this particular kind of ensemble, the Trio plays solo pieces for the individual instruments - accompanied by the others - as well as special arrangements written for the trio as a whole.
The ensemble has already been on tour to Mexico, England (London), Cyprus, to Russia (Moscow), to Lithuania and Turkey as well as to South America and the Middle East.
The TRIO IMPOSSIBILE is without a doubt an unusual, extraordinary and unique group of highly-gifted musicians.
