Austria's stunning Eggner Trio returns to Palmerston North next month performing a programme including New Zealand composer John Psathas' Island Songs.

Internationally-acclaimed and famed for their "musically impassioned togetherness", the Eggner Trio performs at the Regent on Broadway, Palmerston North on Wednesday 2 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 to New Zealand in 2006 and Chamber Music New Zealand is thrilled to welcome them back.

"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 Beethoven's graceful Trio in E flat and Alexander von Zemlinsky's Piano Trio in D minor of 1896 which employs the rich harmonies of the late Romantic era.

The Eggner Trio performs at the Regent on Broadway, Palmerston North on Wednesday 2 April at 8pm. Book at Ticketek by phoning 0800 TICKETEK or online at www.ticketek.co.nz. For more information visit www.chambermusic.co.nz
