    Trio Fibonacci

Following its creation in 1998 the Trio Fibonacci quickly established itself as a world-class chamber ensemble in new music.

Today Trio Fibonacci is recognised as one of the only piano trios that can perform cutting edge contemporary music alongside masterpieces of earlier eras with equal brilliance.

Indeed audiences on four continents have had the opportunity to hear them give inspiring interpretations of the piano trios of Beethoven, Brahms, Ravel, Shostakovich and Schumann. Their stalwart commitment to the music of our time, particularly to the work of Canadian composers, remains undiminished and since the group was formed they have commissioned and premiered some thirty new works.

The Trio Fibonacci has gained a solid reputation internationally and a number of acclaimed composers have written for them including Enno Poppe, Nicolaus A. Huber and Michael Finnissy. Their concert tours have led them to the Ars Musica, Aldeburgh, Ultraschall, Winnipeg and Strasbourg festivals, to Argentina, Chile, Brazil, China, and Japan, to Berlin, San Francisco and New York. Trio Fibonacci has performed for television in Canada, China, and Brazil, and their concerts are regularly broadcast on Canadian radio networks.
The Trio Fibonacci has produced four commercial CD's.

Trio Fibonacci made its first tour to South Africa in September 2008. Always ready to communicate their passion and share their experience, the members of Trio Fibonacci also taught young musicians in South African shanty towns during their tour. Indeed members of Trio Fibonacci are sought-after pedagogues and have given workshops and masterclasses at the Royal Academy of Music in London, at Oxford University (UK), at all four National Conservatories in China, at the Musikhochschule Hanns Eisler in Berlin and at universities across Canada.

In recognition of Trio Fibonacci's outstanding contribution to Canadian musical life the Montreal Arts Council invited the group to give a series of twelve concerts at the Maisons de la culture around the city during the 2008-2009 season. For the series Trio Fibonacci chose to play music written for them by Canadian composers Jean Lesage and Paul Frehner, as well as the celebrated piano trios of Brahms and Ravel.

The Trio Fibonacci was the ensemble-in-residence at the Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur in Montreal between 2004 and 2007 and is currently in residence at the Conservatoire de Québec.
