Making a welcome return to Music in the Park Series is the piano trio, Trio con Brio Copenhagen, hailed for their “unique sound and unity of interpretation” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Founded in Vienna in 1999 with the concept of pairs coming together, the two Korean Hong sisters and Jens Elvekjaer (who is married to Soo-Kyung Hong) have been exploring the piano trio repertoire with freshness and curiosity as well as with respect and reflection. Their Mendelssohn CD was chosen by Britain’s Classic FM as its Chamber Disc of 2011.   Their program features piano trios by Beethoven, Brahms and the Piano Trio in G minor by Czech composer Bedrich Smetana written in response to the death of his daughter. Soo-Jin plays a violin built by Andrea Guarneri from the 17th century and Soo-Kyung plays a Grancino cello. Jens is Denmark’s first Steinway artist.
