"A sigh went skating on nocturnal ice." It has long been known that the poetry of Christian Morgenstern is filled with music. However, it was not until the 90th anniversary of the poet's death before a chamber music ensemble decided to name themselves after him.
The three musicians of the Morgenstern Trio joined forces in 2005 at the Folkwang Academy in Essen. In 2007, after only two years of intensive collaboration, the trio was awarded several important prizes: first prize at the International Joseph Haydn Competition in Vienna, second prize at the Fifth Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, and second prize and the audience prize at the prestigious ARD Competition in Munich. More recently, the trio was named "ensemble in residence" for 2008-09 at the Folkwang Academy in Essen. As a finale to 2009, the Morgenstern Trio was awarded the prestigious Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award, the big international award for piano trio. The prize includes more than 20 concerts in the U.S. including Carnegie Hall, New York, and a CD production.
