Petteri, Juho and Samuli founded Sibelius Piano Trio a few years ago, and catapulted to success on the European concert stage. When three international soloists of this caliber unite to form a chamber music ensemble, the results are predictably electric. These three friends love playing together, and this love is easy to hear in their concerts and in their recording.
Petteri lived in Los Angeles for several years while studying with Hagai Shaham at Thornton School of Music at USC, and he has close family in Southern California. Yarlung had worked with Petteri to record his now legendary albums Art of the Violin and Art of the Sonata with Canadian pianist Kevin Fitz-Gerald, released in DSD, on CD and on vinyl.
Juho has performed often in Los Angeles, once with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, three times with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and once in our home for a LACO event which we very much enjoyed.
The Sibelius Piano Trio’s March, 2016 Segerstrom Center for the Arts concert marked Samuli‘s concert debut in the United States. We are eager for his return.
