The third concert scheduled for the 2022 Blue Hill Concert Association season features Trio con Brio, a piano trio comprised of a violinist, Soo-Jin Hong,  and cellist, Soo-Kyung Hong, who are Korean-born sisters and a Danish pianist, Jens Elvekjaer, who is married to Soo-Kyung Hong. Trio con Brio translates as “trio with panache” and from their reviews, they come by the name honestly! Trio con Brio is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and have been performing together since 1999.

We are beyond excited to welcome this world renowned piano trio, praised by American Record Guide as “one of the greatest performances of chamber music I’ve ever encountered,” to Blue Hill just a year from now.  You may sample their music in the two videos linked below: the first, a performance of Arensky’s Piano Trio No. 1, and the second, a performance of the first movement of Beethoven’s Piano Trio in E flat major.a full performance of one of the Beethoven quartets. Come listen to Trio con Brio in person at the Blue Hill Congregational Church at 3:00 pm on March 6, 2022!
