TonTrio, a young piano trio from Germany will be in concert at the Panjim (Immaculate Conception) Church on Monday, 6 September 2010, 7 pm.

Their concert programme features the following works: Beethoven Piano Trio no. 6 in E flat major, op. 70 no. 2; Shostakovich Trio no. 1 in C major, op. 8; and Robert Schumann Piano Trio in F major, op. 80.

TonTrio (Julia Kraus, piano; Karlotta Schmied, violin; Daniel Haverkamp, cello) was founded in 2006 in the Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe, Germany. At that time the violinist was Eva Maria Vischi; Schmied has come into the ensemble earlier this year.

Since 2009, they have been working with the acclaimed Alban Berg Quartet in the Musikhochschule Köln and with Dirk Mommertz (pianist of the Fauré Piano Quartet)

and Vladimir Mendelssohn (violist of the London String Quartet) in Essen.

They have already attracted much acclaim in the European press, and are now on their first tour of India. Goa is the last stop on their itinerary, which also included Delhi, Mumbai and Pune.
