 Musical highflying through time and space


Rhythmic virtuosity, slender delicacy, powerful and cosmopolitan

New Piano Trio

Florian Willeitner, Violin

Maria Radutu, Piano

Ivan Turkalj, Cello

Fast-paced melodies fly through space, buzzing with exciting rhythms: the New Piano Trio (Germany) spreads its wings and takes you into a whole new universe of sound. The air positively vibrates as these three virtuosos demonstrate the lightness of being at an Irish wedding in Bucharest – high emotions, dancing feet, and good times are impossible to stop.  “Sensual“ and “intoxicating“ describe the Passacaglia or the Fugue of the New Piano Trio as they play their way into the 21st century with “wild” energy and youthful exuberance. This is the sound of the New Piano Trio: slender delicacy, rhythmic virtuosity, powerful and cosmopolitan!

Pianist Maria Radutu, violinist Florian Willeitner and cellist Ivan Turkalj, three top-musicians, demonstrate with every ringing breath the depth of their knowledge and craftsmanship. They have internalised the very essence of their music.

The New Piano Trio redefines the genre, conquering hereto undiscovered worlds of sound. The intensity of the experience unfolds a vast spectrum of colourful sonorities in all imaginable shades. The compositions of violinist Florian Willeitner oscillate effortlessly between radiant and brooding harmonies. Precise movements and intricate Balkan-like rhythms are paired with lyrical melodies to enchant the senses. It is a music that cannot be contained in the “chamber”, but belongs rather to the great stages of the world. Here, not only is every note in place – the cleverness and joyful curiosity of the trio make for an unforgettable listening experience. Whether you are used to classical or pop music: the New Piano Trio is for all ears. You have never heard it quite like this!
