The Atos Trio is perfect for the Summer Festival. Because its members are superb interpreters of Mozart's music. And because they are never content to play the standard repertoire. So this time, three K's hold our attention: Korngold, Krenek and Kreisler. The Atos Trio was founded in 2003 in Berlin by Annette von Hehn (violin), Stefan Heinemeyer (cello) and Thomas Hoppe (piano) and is considered one of the best of its genre. Following their studies with (among others) Ilan Gronich, Menahem Pressler and the Alban Berg Quartet, the trio won prestigious international and national competitions, launching an international career.
