The Rautio Piano Trio is an award-winning ensemble, known for their innovative and captivating performances. Alongside the cornerstones of the repertoire, the Trio presents imaginative programmes incorporating rarely-performed historic works. The Trio has released two critically acclaimed discs for Resonus Classics. Their début disc features Mozart piano trios recorded on a fortepiano belonging to the late Christopher Hogwood. It was hailed by the Observer as ‘an impressive achievement' and received multiple five-star reviews. The Trio's latest release, described as ‘elegantly effervescent' (Gramophone, 2018) includes the world premiere recording of Ferdinand Hiller's Trio No. 6 in C minor alongside Beethoven and Schubert.
The Trio has performed at the Wigmore Hall, South Bank, Bridgewater Hall, St George's Bristol on BBC Radio 3, throughout the UK and in France, Austria, Germany and Israel. Highlights include performances at the London Bach Society, Hambacher Musikfest in Germany, SOUND contemporary music festival in Scotland, English Haydn Festival, Pablo Casals Festival in France and at the Haydn-Saal in Vienna. At Kings Place, London, they presented ‘Approaching the Iron Curtain', a concert celebrating Shostakovich's life and music on the 40th anniversary of his death. The Trio return to Kings Place in 2019 and will be joined by violist Robin Ashwell (Sacconi Quartet).
The Rautio Trio collaborate with a variety of guests to produce cross-genre and theatrical programmes. They designed a staged concert, ‘Mozart's Court', with soprano Kirsty Hopkins and director Hazel Gould which debuted at Hastings Early Music Festival 2018. The Trio have also curated science and music programmes with TV presenter Dallas Campbell, recently performing with actor Oliver Senton to a sold-out hall for Robin Ince's show at Kings Place in December 2018.The Trio explore neglected works with a particular focus on 18th and 19th century music. They revived keyboard trios by Johann Christian Bach (the ‘London Bach'), which they first performed for the London Bach Society BachFest and subsequently at the Cobbe Collection of historical instruments and at St George's Bristol. They have also explored the piano trios by Ferdinand Hiller, featured in their latest CD and described as ‘wonderfully buoyant' (Guardian).
The Rautio Piano Trio was formed at the Royal Academy of Music, London, and at the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove. They are grateful to for the numerous awards received at the start of their careers from the Tillett Trust, Worshipful Company of Musicians, Park Lane Group, Musician's Benevolent Fund Ensemble Award and a Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music.
