Founded in 2007 at the Yehudi Menuhin School, the Sitkovetsky Trio has now emerged as one of the outstanding young trios of today, in high demand throughout Europe. Praised by The Strad for ‘unbounded, tireless energy’, and by Classical Source for ‘formidable technique with a mature understanding of the music’, the ensemble has been supported by the Wigmore Hall Emerging Talent scheme.

The Sitkovetsky Trio’s recital at Wigmore Hall in September 2013 is now available on CD, and features two great works of the genre. Brahms’s Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, arguably one of the composer’s most concentrated and intense scores, precedes Schubert’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat, first performed in 1828 in a concert consisting entirely of Schubert’s own music – the only event of its kind to take place in his lifetime.
