Omri Epstein · piano; Mathieu van Bellen · violin; Ori Epstein · cello
“All are within their twenties; the youngest recruit, cellist Ori Epstein, is a mere 22. But the group already play as though musically joined at the hip – something to be expected with Epstein and his older brother Omri, the group’s marvellously sensitive pianist.
Beyond the players’ individual gifts, what impressed most was the group’s effortless musicianship and unity of thought and attack. The threesome even seemed to be breathing in synch”

Winners of the 2012 Royal Overseas League Competition they are one of the leading piano trios of the new generation.
