The Storioni Trio was founded in 1995 by Bart van de Roer (piano), Wouter Vossen (violin) and Marc Vossen (cello). The trio derives its name from the Laorentius Storioni violin from Cremona, which dates from 1794 and is played by Wouter Vossen. Marc Vossen plays a Giovanni Grancino cello from Milan, dating from 1700. In order to develop its ensemble-playing, the trio has worked over the years with great musicians such as Isaac Stern (violin), Mstislav Rostropovich (cello/piano), Menahem Pressler (piano), and Ralph Kirshbaum (cello), as well as members of the Emerson Quartet and the Vermeer Quartet.
The Storioni Trio offers an expansive repertoire ranging from the music of Haydn and Mozart, via Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel and Shostakovich, to exciting works by contemporary composers. Composer Kevin Volans wrote a triple concerto for the 10th anniversary of the Storioni Trio. The trio has received various prizes and awards, and performs regularly on radio and television. The CDs recorded by the Storioni Trio have all received high critical acclaim.
The Storioni Trio performs chamber music with artists such as Gidon Kremer (violin), Dimitri Sitkovetsky (violin), Jean-Ives Thibaudet (piano), Rainer Kussmaul (violin), Nobuko Imai (viola), Vladimir Mendelssohn (viola), Elisabeth von Magnus (mezzo-soprano), Marina Shaguch (soprano), Emma Johnson (clarinet), and Herve Joulain (horn). Also, the Trio has been invited to play as soloists with the Münchner Kammerorchester, Musikkolegium Winterthur, the Ireland RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie.
The Storioni Trio regularly performs at all major venues in the Netherlands, such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Doelen Concert Hall in Rotterdam, and the Muziekcentrum Vredenburg in Utrecht. The trio is Artistic Director of the ‘Storioni Festival’ at the Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven: the 2nd edition will take place in January 2009. Guest-musicians from all over the world will join the trio for this festival, during which unique chamber-music programmes with top international musicians as well as upcoming talented musicians of the highest calibre are presented.
The trio is also highly active at an international level, giving concerts at the most important music centres throughout the world, such as the Weill Recital Hall (Carnegie Hall), the Frick Collection in New York, and the Wigmore Hall in London.
