Schnyder Trio

Schnyder Trio
juni 22, 2015
    • The Schnyder Trio celebrated its debut at the Tonhalle Zurich in 2012, and soon thereafter released its first CD with Schubert’s Piano Trios, which was hailed „a new BENCHMARK recording“ by the magazine Die Bühne and selected „Switzerland’s Best Classical Album 2013“ by the Aargauer Zeitung. This immediate success was followed by the recording of Brahms’ complete Piano Trios, which also received great critical acclaim and has been awarded a “Milestone” from Musik & Theater and selected “Switzerland’s Best Classical Album 2014” by the Aargauer Zeitung. The latest recording „Winterreisen”, was selected “CD of the month” of the Opernwelt magazine and has been awarded a Supersonic from Pizzicato. The trio is currently recording the complete Beethoven Piano Trios for Sony Classical. Highlights in the short history of the Schnyders include invitations by the SWR Schlossfestspiele Ettlingen, the Meisterzyklus Bern, London Wigmore Hall, Schloss Elmau, a tour of Taiwan, South Corea and Japan, and residencies at the Hirzenberg and Musikdorf Ernen festivals, performing with musician friends such as Daniel Behle, Vilde Frang, Nils Mönkemeyer, and Lars Anders Tomter. Future performances include debuts at the Homburger Meisterkonzerte, WDR Köln, Hugo-Wolf-Akademie Stuttgart, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Ittinger Pfingskonzerte, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and another Asian tour to Taiwan and China.

      Andreas Janke, first concertmaster of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, studied in Salzburg with Igor Ozim and the Hagen Quartet. He has won prizes at important competitions (such as the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, the Fritz Kreisler in Vienna, the Benjamin Britten in London and the Prague Spring Competition). He was appointed a professor at the Zurich University of the Arts in 2013. Andreas Janke plays on a violin by Carlo Bergonzi, the “Hozier, Andrews” of 1733-39, which has been placed at his disposal by Mercedes-Benz Automobil AG, Zurich.

      Benjamin Nyffenegger, deputy solo cellist of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, studied in Zurich with Walter Grimmer and Thomas Grossenbacher. He has won prizes at several national and international competitions and got scholarships in Aspen from David Zinman and from the Friedl-Wald and Orpheum foundations. He performs with leading orchestras such as the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra and Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields. Nyffenegger is a sought-after chamber musician and also the cellist of the Julia Fischer Quartet.

      Oliver Schnyder studied with Emmy Henz-Diémand and Homero Francesch in Switzerland, then with Leon Fleisher in the USA. He performs with leading orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the Danish National Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, Zurich Chamber and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields under conductors such as Semyon Bychkov, Philippe Jordan, Mario Venzago, Sir Roger Norrington and David Zinman. He released CDs on the RCA and SONYclassical labels, featuring works by Mozart, Schumann, Liszt, Haydn, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms.
