“Three voices – one sound: it´s this absolutely perfect unit of phrasing, sound, feel and interpretation that distinguishes the ATOS Trio from all others” (Detroit Free Press):
Formed in Berlin, Germany in 2003 by Annette von Hehn (violin), Thomas Hoppe (piano) and Stefan Heinemeyer (violoncello) the ATOS Trio has established itself as one of the finest piano trios performing before the public today.
After intensive studies with Ilan Gronich, Menahem Pressler and the Alban Berg Quartet, the Trio won the Deutsche Musikwettbewerb, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award and the International Melbourne Chamber Music Competition. A New Generation Artists Award from the BBC and a Borletto Buitoni Award soon followed.
Since then, the ATOS Trio has performed in many of the world´s prestigious halls - at Carnegie Hall New York, Teatro Colón Buenos Aires, Wigmore Hall London, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, to name but a few - with a repertoire that includes all the piano trio masterworks as well as many a lesser known treasure and contemporary pieces.
"...they were Austrians in Haydn, Czechs in Dvorak and Russians in Shostakovich." (O Estado de Sao Paulo, Brazil)
With distinguished interpretations and unbridled enthusiasm, with absolute dedication and always enthrallingly genuine, the ATOS Trio continues to record to highest acclaim and to delight audiences at concerts around the world.
Annette von Hehn plays a violin built by Julia Pasch (Vienna) in 2016, and Stefan Heinemeyer on a cello by Thomas Kennedy (1827).
