Trio Immersio is a young, energetic and charismatic ensemble from Vienna. Since its first season in 2013, Trio Immersio has enjoyed tremendous success, having won the “Suzuki-Enami Foundation Prize” at the 2013 Fidelio Competition in Vienna within the first months of its existence. Since then, Trio Immersio has been working with major concert organizers such as Jeunesse Austria and Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Foundation and has performed at prestigious venues such as the Wiener Konzerthaus, Musikverein Wien, Istanbul CRR Konser Salonu or Schönberg Centre.
Furthermore Trio Immersio has performed at prestigious festivals such as the 45th International Istanbul Music Festival, Austrian Spring, Kiev Music Fest, and others. The artistic mission of the trio is to observe the development of the Viennese piano trio through the prism of time and space, and its influence on works of this genre in different musical cultures and time periods. The exciting repertoire of Trio Immersio includes works from classical era all the way until our days.
Trio Immersio's members come from the Republic of Georgia, Ukraine, and Serbia. They bring together musical influences of their homelands that blend organically with the Viennese tradition of chamber music. This well-balanced mixture represents the essence of the multi-cultural spirit of Vienna's vibrant musical history.
