The Linos Piano Trio’s colourful and distinctive musical voice draws on the rich cultural and artistic backgrounds of the three musicians. Their seven languages, five nationalities, and breadth of specialisms, ranging from historical performance to new music, contribute to their multifaceted and personal performances. Alongside the ensemble’s commitment to the genre’s masterpieces, Linos expands the repertoire by championing hidden gems and creating new trio transcriptions.

Praised for its “slow-burning, gripping performance” by The Strad, and “virtuosity, presence of mind, and wit” by the Süddeutsche Zeitung, the trio’s reputation has taken it to prestigious stages and festivals internationally. With its pioneering spirit, the trio recorded the first complete set of C P E Bach’s Piano Trios to be released on disc (CAvi-music, 2020), for which they received several five-star reviews from across the European press.

Of the ensemble’s numerous awards and affiliations, the Linos Piano Trio was the First Prize and Audience Prize winner of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2015, the 2014 winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize, and has been Carne Ensemble-in-Residence at Trinity Laban Conservatoire since 2017.

Formed in London in 2007, the Linos Piano Trio studied at the Guildhall School and then at the Musikhochschule Hannover with Professors Oliver Wille and Markus Becker. The ensemble also received guidance from Sir András Schiff, Peter Cropper, Ferenc Rados, Rainer Schmidt and Eberhard Feltz.

In 2016 the trio embarked on its ongoing project Stolen Music, a rapturously-received series of trio arrangements of orchestral masterpieces such as Ravel’s La Valse, and Dukas’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The trio has just released its recording of Stolen Music for CAvi-music in partnership with the Bayerischer Rundfunk, featuring four important turn-of-the-century works, centred around the theme of transformation. The CD was subsequently chosen as winner in the chamber music category of the prestigious Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik (German Record Critics’ Award) for the fourth quarter of 2021, with the jury describing their performances as “ravishingly musical, amazingly homogeneous and absolutely stylish”.
