Biography

Gold medal winners of the 2019 Vienna International Music Competition, the Trio Goldberg was founded when three key members of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra (Liza Kerob - Concertmaster; Federico Hood - Principal Viola, Thierry Amadi - Principal Cello), rich with the diversity of their respective cultural backgrounds, joined forces to create this dynamic and eclectic ensemble. 

With a repertoire ranging from Mozart to Schnittke, the Trio performs works by Bach, Schubert, Enescu, Kodály, Piazzolla, Sibelius, Jean Françaix, Ysaÿe and Tôn-Thât Tiêt, among others. It draws its name from the brilliant transcription by Dmitry Sitkovetsky of J.S. Bach's immortal Goldberg Variations. A passionate devotion to this masterwork soon became the ensemble's trademark and led to a recording for OPMC Classics. Their second disk, this time under the ARS Produktion label "De l'Ombre à la Lumière", (featuring trios by Jean Cras, Mieczysłav Weinberg, Gideon Klein, and Ernst von Dohnányi) has also received an enthusiastic response from the press, with critiques claiming "... this first release with ARS Produktion {the Trio Goldberg} have, as far as I’m concerned, catapulted themselves into the top echelon of modern string trios, giving ample proof of their sensitive yet impressive musicality, whilst showing an extraordinary degree of team spirit. In short: whatever the Goldberg’s touch will turn into Gold!" (Adrian Quanjer and HRAudio.net). In 2019, together with flautist Jean Ferrandis, the trio will release a Europe&Art label recording of Mozart's flute quartets.

Frequently the ensemble collaborates with prestigious musicians such as Patrice Fontanarosa, Régis Pasquier, Olivier Charlier, Gérard Caussé, Dominique de Williencourt, Jean Ferrandis, Shani Diluka, Matan Porat, Iddo Bar-Shaï, and Luis Fernando Pérez. 

The Trio Goldberg performs in France and throughout Europe (Bordeaux, Tours, Vienna, Linz, Budapest, Bratislava, London, Monaco…) and participates in various eminent festivals: "La Folle Journée de Nantes", "La Folle Journée à Ekaterinbourg", the "Festival des Grands Heures de Cluny", the "À Portée de Rue" Festival in Castres, the "Moments Musicaux de L’Hermitage" in La Baule, the Chaillol Festival, Menton Festival and at the Orsay Museum.
