visionary, singer and poet of ancient Greece - inspired Johanna Müller, Oliwia Meiser and Daria Tudor in their chamber music project. Having travelled as far and having received as many awards as their antique example, the instrumentalists from Germany, Poland and Romania were drawn to the Berlin University of the Arts - the magnet for musicians from all over the world.
Their musical endeavour started in the early 2020 and developed throughout the next months despite the hardships that struck the artistic and global community among that period of time. By the end of 2021 the trio has been acclaimed by numerous foundations and institutions. They are the winners of the Szczecin Classic Ensemble in Residence Award and were invited as such to participate in the 2021 edition of the Szczecin Classic Academy. They are third prize winners of the Alice Samter Wettbewerb, semifinalists of Deutscher Musikwettbewerb, Schumann Chamber-Music Award 2022 and award recipients of the Mendelssohn Hochschulwettbewerb.
The Arion Piano Trio is taught by Dirk Mommertz (Faure Quartett) at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Munich, Germany. In the past the musicians have worked with Konstantin Heidrich (Faure Quartett), Eckart Runge (Artemis Quartett) and Frank Immo-Zichner. Individually they are studying in the classes of Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, Björn Lehmann and Nora Chastain. The trio has worked on multiple occasions with Eberhard Feltz. They have taken masterclasses from Ulf Schneider (Trio Jean Paul), Wen-Sinn Yang and Priya Mitchell.
Since 2021 the trio holds a scholarship of Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Berlin e.V. Starting from 2020 they are supported by the Paul Hindemith Society in Berlin. They received scholarship by the Elsa-Wera-Arnold-Stiftung der Rektorenkonferenz der deutschen Musikhochschulen (RKM).
Individually the musicians are nationally and internationally acclaimed, they have already performed as soloists and chamber musicians in the Berlin Philharmonie, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Musikverein Wien and the Mendelssohn House in Leipzig and have been performing at festivals such as the Art of the Piano Festival - Ohio, Rheingau Music Festival, Merano Music Festival, the Mozart Festival Würzburg and the Crescendo Music festival of the UdK Berlin.
It is not only the obsession for chamber music, the uncompromising search of expression and the humour that connects the three artists before, during and after concerts; delivering musical message to people, building a bridge between the stage and the audience is just as important to them.
