Sitkovetsky Piano Trio

Sitkovetsky Piano Trio
  • Alexander Sitkovetsky · violin
  • Wu Qian · piano
  • Sebastien Van Kuijk · cello

First prizewinner of the International Commerzbank Chamber Music Award 2008 and recipient of the Nordmetall Chamber Music Award at the Mecklenburg Vorpommern Festival 2009, the Sitkovetsky Trio was formed two years earlier and has since emerged as one of the oustanding trios of today, receiving numerous awards and critical acclaim. Founder members Alexander Sitkovetsky and Wu Qian were delighted to welcome cellist Richard Harwood for their 2014/15 season. Highlights this year include the launch of their new CD featuring Brahms’s C minor Piano Trio and Schubert’s expansive E flat Piano Trio on the Wigmore Hall label, and performances at the Bath Mozartfest and the Wiltshire Music Centre.

The Sitkovetsky Trio would like to announce that cellist Richard Harwood is no longer a member of the ensemble, effective immediately. The Trio is delighted that cellist Sebastien Van Kuijk will be joining them as guest cellist for their next performances.
