The three players combine to create a gloriously balanced sound, the sensitivity of Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han a wonderful counterpoint to the exuberant energy of British cellist Samuel Shepherd and the delicate precision of German violinist Lea Hausmann. Always lyrical, often surprising, catch this trio while you can!

The Amatis Piano Trio was founded in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han. Just weeks after forming, this exhilarating young piano trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, quickly leading to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw. Since then, they’ve taken the chamber music scene by storm, winning a slew of international prizes including the 2015 International Parkhouse Award in Wigmore Hall. For the 2018/2019 season, the trio has been selected as ‘Rising Stars’ by the European Concert Hall Organisation, which will see them perform in 23 prestigious concert venues across Europe.
