Gold medal winners of the 2019 Vienna International Music Competition, the Trio Goldberg was founded when three key members of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo (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 large repertoire ranging from baroque to present day compositions, the Trios’ first recording is devoted to the immortal Goldberg Variations by J. S. Bach, from where it draws its name (OPMC Classics). Their second CD, “De l’Ombre à la Lumière” (ARS Produktion), features hitherto less familiar trios by Jean Cras, Mieczyslav Weinberg, Gideon Klein and Ernst von Dohnányi, and was enthusiastically received by the press (5 Diapasons, 5 stars FonoForum, 5 stars Pizzicato, 5 stars HRAudio, top 5 CD Journal Frankfurt) and nominated for the German Opus Klassik Prize.
The Trio Goldberg frequently collaborates with prestigious musicians such as Jean Ferrandis, with whom they have recorded W.A. Mozart’s flute quartets (Europe&Art), Matan Porat, Iddo Bar-Shaï, Luis Fernando Pérez, Georges Pludermacher and Shani Diluka. The ensemble performs in France as well as throughout Europe. It participates in well-known festivals such as ‘La Folle Journée de Nantes’, ‘La Folle Journée de
Ekaterinbourg’, the Chaillol Festival, the Menton Festival, the Festival des Grandes Heures de Cluny, at the Orsay Museum, as well as in Vienna, Linz, Bratislava, Budapest and London.
