Austria's stunning Eggner Trio has its Hamilton debut next month with a one night only performance featuring a programme including New Zealand composer John Psathas' Island Songs.

Internationally-famed for their "musically impassioned togetherness", the Eggner Trio performs at the WEL Energy Trust Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato, Hamilton on Saturday 5 April as part of their 10 centre nationwide tour presented by Chamber Music New Zealand.

The brothers from Vienna were audience favourites when they toured New Zealand in 2006, however this 2008 tour is the first time Hamilton audiences have the opportunity to hear this acclaimed trio.

"At the heart of their performance was their utterly fabulous technique. The result was that magical ability both to grasp the big picture and to concentrate on the details" – The Press

Founded in 1997, the Eggner Trio regularly performs concerts and festivals throughout Europe, North America and Japan. In 2003 they won the 2003 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and in 2006 were nominated for the Carnegie Hall Rising Stars Project.

Mentored and tutored by Juri Smirnov (Vienna Brahms Trio) Menahem Pressler (Beaux Arts Trio), Gunter Pichler and Thomas Kakuska (Alban Berg Quartet) the brothers individually have amassed a mantelpiece full of prizes and awards. Georg Eggner plays a Joseph Gagliano violin (1779) and Florian Eggner a Carl Richter cello (1907).

At the heart of the Eggner Trio programme on their New Zealand tour is John Psathas' striking Island Songs, a piece inspired by the unique rhythms of Greek dances and especially selected by the trio for this tour.
The programme also includes Mozart's Trio in G and Tchaikovsky's lushly romantic tribute to Arthur Rubinstein.

The Eggner Trio performs at WEL Energy Trust Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato, Hamilton on Saturday 5 April at 8pm. Book at TicketDirect by phoning 0800 383 5200 or online at www.ticketdirect.co.nz. For more information visit www.chambermusic.co.nz
