Phaeton Piano Trio from Germany to perform local concert

The Phaeton Piano Trio: Peter Hörr, violincello; Friedemann Eichhorn, violin; Florian Uhlig, piano.

After years of touring Europe, Asia and South America, the Phaeton Piano Trio is making its first tour to the United States where it will perform at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C., the Frick Collection in New York City, and the San Jose Chamber Music Society in California. Notably, between New York and California, the Trio will also perform at the Rocky River Chamber Music Society! The Trio will play classic works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Dvořák on Monday, Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m., at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, 20401 Hilliard Blvd. in Rocky River.

Based in Eastern Germany, artists Florian Uhlig, piano; Friedemann Eichhorn, violin; and Peter Hörr, violoncello, have an extensive discography performing as soloists under several different labels. The Trio has received many accolades from critics who call their performances “spirited and virtuosic,” “fantastic” and “masterful.”  One German reviewer declared, “The members of the Phaeton Piano Trio are virtuosos who cannot be surpassed in their musicianship and who unconditionally place their art in the service of interpretation.”

The Rocky River Chamber Music Society is fortunate to present the Phaeton Piano Trio on Feb. 10. Arrive early since the sanctuary fills up quickly. There is no admission charge for any of the Society’s concerts and all are welcome. For more information, visit
