Hailed as “artists in the deepest sense of the word” (CutCommon), the Merz Trio, winners of the Naumburg International Chamber Music Award Competition, Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, Concert Artists Guild competition, and Chesapeake Music’s International Chamber Music Competition for Young Professionals, has been lauded for their “stunning virtuosity … fresh and surprising interpretations” (Reading Eagle) and “perfection of intonation and ensemble” (Hudson Review). Seamlessly tacking between traditional repertoire and the music of our time, the trio are known for their vibrantly dynamic programming, wide-ranging interdisciplinary collaboration and prolific new arrangements of works for piano trio.

The trio is also known for their fluid and imaginative integration of music and text in their programming, ranging from their recital-theater piece built around Shakespeare’s Macbeth (“Those Secret Eyes”) to their recent debut album interweaving Ravel’s Trio with short pieces, poems and diaries of the era (“Ink,” August 2021).

At the Weis Center, the Merz Trio will bring together a series of diversely lyrical and stunningly rich works in a program called After Vienna, including Alma Mahler and Alban Berg: “Four Songs”; Daniel Temkin: “Five Bagatelles”; Dmitri Shostakovich: Piano Trio No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 8 and Franz Schubert: Piano Trio No. 2 in E-flat Major, D. 899.
