The Independent

In November 2011 the Rosamunde Trio collaborated with DanceCyprus in a series of performances with music by Schubert and Smetana. This unusual combination of dance with music for piano trio proved an enormous success and further performances in several countries are now being planned.

In 2012 the Rosamunde Trio celebrated its 10th anniversary with several performances of the complete Trios of Beethoven, including one at London's Kings Place. Following the enormous success of these concerts the Trio embarked on an even bigger series for the London Chamber Music Society entitled 'Mozart and the French School'. This included all the Mozart Trios and the great French Trios and Quartets.
