The three musicians of the Trio Lirico are connected on the one hand by their passion for chamber music; on the other hand, all three also pursue their careers as soloists. This solo character in the chamber music association is the hallmark of the ensemble: The chamber music dialogue is maintained with solo passion, three personalities full of character "talk" at eye level, cultivating their individuality without neglecting the homogeneity of the ensemble. The result is a unique mixture full of temperament, joy in playing and delightful tension.
In addition, there is the nuanced, inspired string sound and the successful combination of style and personal access in the interpretations: All of this led to the Trio Lirico being able to establish itself successfully in concert life shortly after its founding in 2014. The wide-ranging repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary works; The integration of string duos in the trio programs gives the concerts additional charm.
To mark the 100th anniversary of Max Reger's death, the trio recorded their debut album on the audite label. The CD was released in autumn 2017 and received rave reviews from the international trade press.
The German ensemble Trio Lirico do an outstanding job, giving performances that are light and buoyant, with beautiful clarity of texture and finely gauged balance between the instruments (Fanfare,01.07.2018)
Georg Christoph Biller, (* 20.09.1955) Thomaskantor, conductor and composer dedicated a string trio - Rilke-Metamorphosen - to the trio. The world premiere took place on September 28th, 2017 in Bayrischzell - Germany. Another recording with works by Schnittke, Weinberg and Penderecki was released in September 2019. She received nominations for the German Record Critics' Award and the ICMA 2020.
At the beginning of 2021 there was a change in the line-up of the trio. Johannes Krebs left the trio for personal reasons. Hila Karni has been the ensemble's new cellist since April.
Eine gehörige Portion streicherisches Können, viel Übersicht und eine überragende gestalterische Linie hört man dem Trio Lirico in jedem der drei Werke an. Der Intensität der Darstellung kann man sich beim Hören dieser CD kaum entziehen.
