Stylistically deep, inside the music and conveying both it’s muscle and it’s inspired allure.

This is Beethoven at both his most grandly festive and his most playful and teasing, revelling in the explorationof new colours and textures which in the Largo achieve a rapt beauty. These splendid Dutch forces do it proud.’– Sunday Times

Het Storioni Festival, een avontuurlijke mix van klassiek en minder bekend, zo niet nieuw repertoire

- Fritz van der Waa - deVolkskrant -

Het Storioni Festival is first and foremost the Storioni Trio. So there was recognition in all senses of the word when, just before the interval, pianist Bart van de Roer, violinist Wouter Vossen and cellist Marc Vossen played a movement from Piazzolla’s Four Seasons. Clear, warm, slightly sensual, it could be said to have set the tone for the whole festival on this first evening.

The Storioni Festival offers an adventurous mix of classic and less well-known, if not new, repertoire

- de Volkskrant -

De vertolking door de eenheid die het Storioni Trio is, laat zich het beste vangen in één woord: Grandeur.

- Luister (een 10) -

Diese rhythmisch und dynamisch überwiegend kleinteilig aufgebaute Musik kann nur mitreißen, wenn die Musiker perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt sind. Das sind sie im Orchester und ebenso im Storioni-Klaviertrio, das die Tripelliteratur von der Wiener Klassik bis in die Gegenwart im Repertoire hat.

- Das Orchester Magazin -

Franz Schuberts Trio in Es-Dur op. 99 D 898 von 1827 bildete den Schluss nach der Pause. All die Merkmaleder Interpretation bei Haydn und Brahms fanden sich hier wieder und führten (vor allem im Adagio) zu geradezuhimmlischer Musik: Ideale Verteilung der Gewichte, sensibel austarierte Kantilenen und hohe Plastizität des Ausdrucks … Bravo-Rufe und Getrampel gab es zum Schluss für ein äußerst konzentriertes Konzert aufhöchstem Niveau – und zwei Zugaben des Storioni Trio.

Het digitale Storioni Festival Thuis vormde een krachtig antwoord op de dreigende kunstverschraling in Brabant

- Joost Galema NRC -

The players’ approach to Schubert results in elegant and essentially lyrical performances …The meticulouspreparations, obvious from keenly observed dynamics, in no way inhibits a freedom in the abb and flow of themusic which emerges with freshness and spontaneity

- The STRAD -

Storioni Festival is ook en vooral Storioni Trio. Herkenning en erkenning waren dan ook groot toen pianist Bart van de Roer, violist Wouter Vossen en cellist Marc Vossen als laatste voor de pauze een deel uit de Vier Jaargetijden van Piazzolla speelden. Helder, warm, een beetje zwoel zelfs zette het deze eerste avond de signatuur onder het festival

The Storioni Festival At Home digital edition provided an effective answer to the threat of art drying up in [the southern Dutch province of] Brabant.

Storioni Trio,

A quarter of a century sounds like a very long time, but it has slipped by so quickly. It seems as though it was just yesterday that we were sitting on the edge of the stage in the Concertgebouw Recital Hall after our first concert there.

Over the last 25 years, we have played in almost all corners of our beautiful world, not only in big prestigious concert halls and with famous conductors, but also in little churches and at extraordinary locations. We have recorded CDs, taken part in radio and television programmes, not to mention establishing our very own Storioni Festival.

Despite all that, though, what stands out is how enormously we have enjoyed our time together, being friends with each other, with our audience and with so many other musicians!

Our anniversary season is packed full of great concerts and projects;

There are concerts in the Main Hall of Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, the Doelen concert hall in Rotterdam, and the TivoliVredenburg music complex in Utrecht.

The agenda also includes a tour of the Netherlands playing Emánuel Moór’s Triple Concerto with the Dutch National Youth Orchestra under Anthony Hermus and a tour to Korea playing Kalevi Aho’s Triple Concerto. We are also taking part in the Kuhmo Chamber Music festival, the Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival in Warsaw and, for the first time, the Delft Chamber Music Festival.

The autumn and spring include: chamber music evenings with artists including Jörg Widmann, Joshua Bell and Sharon Kamm; a theatre tour with actors Thom Hoffman and Saskia Temmink; a new CD of the Moór Triple Concerto with the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra under Pablo Gonzalez for the CPO label, and a recording of the Aho Triple Concerto with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra under Olari Elts for the BIS label.

And of course, there’s our own Storioni Festival 2021 which will include the world premiere of a piano quartet by Brett Dean with the composer playing the viola.

We will see what is possible for the months immediately ahead but, as always, each and every concert will be a source of joy to us. We are grateful to be able to look forward to sharing our musical story with you for another 25 years!
