In 2007 they won the Europäischen Kammermusikwettbewerbs in Karlsruhe. Two years later, they secured the Prix Marguerite Dütschler in Gstaad. Also in 2009 they claimed equal first prize and the audience prize at the Internationalen Joseph Haydn Kammermusik Wettbewerb in Vienna. Initially performing as the Berolino Trio, in recent years the Berlin Piano Trio has been one of the most interesting chamber ensembles around. Its members studied at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover with Markus Becker. During the chamber concert at the Warsaw Philharmonic, Krzysztof (first violin and soloist of Berliner Philharmoniker) and Katarzyna Polonek with Nikolaus Resa will present compositions linked in various ways with the former Habsburg Empire: Joseph Haydn’s ‘Gypsy’ Trio in G major and Antonín Dvořák’s ‘Dumky’ Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, inspired by Eastern Slavic traditional music, which was the famous Czech composer’s farewell to his compatriots before he left for the United States towards the end of the nineteenth century.
