Founded in 2008, The Orbis Trio brings together three leading young Czech artists, all experienced soloists and chamber musicians. They have performed extensively across Europe (Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Italy) and appeared at international festivals such as Prague Spring Festival, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festspiele, Festival EuroArt Praha, Val Tidone Festival, Suk’s Musical Štiřín, Chopin´s Festival and Young Prague.
The Orbis Trio ranks among the most successful chamber ensembles in the Czech Republic, winning prizes in several prestigious competitions. In 2009, they took first prize at the ‘Premio Anguissola Scotti’ Competition in Italy and at the ‘Fifth International Johannes Brahms Chamber Music’ Competition in Gdansk, Poland; came third and were the leading piano trio in both the ‘International Chamber Music Competition’ in Hamburg, Germany, and the ‘Gianni Bergamo Classic Music Award’ Competition in Lugano, Switzerland. In 2010, they were recipients of the Prize of the Czech Society of Chamber Music and a special prize at the Bohuslav Martinu Competition for the best interpretation of the that composer’s music.
The Orbis Trio has made several recordings and broadcasts for Czech Radio. In 2011 they recorded the complete piano trios of František Škroup and are currently working on recording all the Dvořák trios. The players continue to develop their training and musical interpretation with coaching from leading artists such as Ivan Klánský (Guarneri trio), Václav Bernášek (Kocián Quartet), Daniel Veis (Prague trio), and Ivan Moravec.
