Trio Solisti’s distinction as “the most exciting piano trio in America” (The New Yorker) is affirmed by recent rave reviews: “the superlative Trio Solisti gave an immaculate and insightful performance” (The Dallas Chamber Music Society – Theater Jones), “a compelling performance…Trio Solisti really knocked it out of the ballpark” (Chamber Music Monterrey Bay – Peninsula Reviews), and “the most fully explored, interestingly probed, and fully engaged [performance of the Brahms Trio in B major] that I’ve ever experienced. Chamber music connoisseurs should absolutely not miss Trio Solisti” (Rockport Chamber Music Festival – The Boston Musical Intelligencer). Noted Wall Street Journal critic Terry Teachout proclaimed the ensemble to be “the group that to my mind has now succeeded the Beaux Arts Trio as the outstanding chamber music ensemble of its kind,” and The New Yorker described it as “probably the finest American piano trio currently on the field.”

Founded in 2001, Trio Solisti – violinist Maria Bachmann, cellist Alexis Pia Gerlach, and pianist Fabio Bidini – performs at major venues and series across the United States. The Trio has twice performed a three-concert series at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall: in 2015, the trio performed the complete piano chamber music of Brahms in performances hailed by The Strad for their “abundant dynamism, exceptional balance and a wholly successful grasp of the interpretive essence,” and in the 2018-19 season, the trio returned to Weill Hall for a series called “Masterworks”, featuring music of Dvořák, Schubert, Chausson, Beethoven, Haydn and Brahms.
