On April 17, 2018 the award-winning Danish piano trio, Trio Vitruvi, bring their "highest technical and musical qualities" (maestro Ádám Fischer) to Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall presented by Bridge Records in their US debut performance.

Trio Vitruvi: Niklas Walentin (violin) Alexander McKenzie (piano) and Jacob la Cour (cello) have performed critically acclaimed concerts throughout Europe and China, in celebrated venues including the St. Petersburg Philharmonia Grand Hall, Mariinsky Theatre, Salle Cortot and the Danish National Radio. They have been awarded both first prize and the audience prize at the Danish National Radio's Chamber Music Competition 2014, first prize at the Jurmala International Music Competition, awards from the royal family of Denmark, the Sonning Foundation and the National Arts Council "The Young Elite". 

Trio Vitruvi takes its name from the Roman architect and philosopher Vitruvius, whose ideas about proportions, beauty, structure and the relationship between the natural and human worlds are particularly relevant to the ensemble's approach to music. The group was founded in 2013 after intense days of work on the small, windswept island of Fanø off of Denmark's western coast.
In April 2018, Trio Vitruvi releases their debut CD of Schubert piano trios on Bridge Records (CD 9510). The CD features the rarely performed Bärenreiter Urtext edition of Schubert Piano Trio No. 2 in Eb Major, D. 929 which contains many extra minutes of music not included in previous editions. Also on the CD is the one-movement "Notturno" D.897. See below for complete details on the CD "Trio Vitruvi plays Schubert Piano Trios, D.929 & D.897".
