About Trio Jean Paul
The Trio Jean Paul, founded in 1991, ranks among the most successful and sought-after chamber music ensembles today. After winning first prizes at the international competitions in Osaka (1993), Melbourne (1995), and at the German Music Competition, an extensive concert career has developed which regularly takes the ensemble to the world’s major musical centers. The Trio captivates with its sophisticated ensemble culture, keen sense of tonal aesthetics and the poised style of the three artists. By naming their ensemble after the author Jean Paul, the three musicians refer to the fundamental artistic idea of making the music’s speech-like and rhetorical elements the point of departure for their interpretations.
