  • Organization : TRIO VENTUS
  • Section : Artistic and creative activity in Tokyo
  • Type of Grant Program : Single

As well as performing a repertoire the group has worked on since its founding, the concert will feature the world premiere of a new piece commissioned from leading contemporary composer Teruaki Suzuki, forging a new repertoire and history for the piano trio. The performance will also feature orthodox – and you might say typical – classical music composed by Schubert in the 19th century, as well as two 20th century works in complete musical contrast to that, a 1930 work by Martinu and a 1984 piece by Rihm. In one evening, this concert will present the piano trio in its historical context.

Performed by:
Mika Hirose – violin
Koya Suzuki – cello
Yoshito Kitabata – piano

Schubert: Sonatensatz D28 in B-flat major
Rihm: Fremde Szene Ⅲ
Martinu: Piano Trio No.1 H.193 (5 short pieces)
Teruaki Suzuki: Piano Trio No.2
Schubert: Piano Trio No.2 in E-flat major Op.100 D 929


Formed in 2019 by the three members, who were all studying in Berlin at the time. Ventus means “wind” in Latin. The group was named from a desire to showcase the three different, overlapping styles (style can be expressed as “wind” in Japanese) of three musicians who studied in the same land. The trio has racked up a series of recitals in numerous places, beginning with its debut recital at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan in October 2020. In January 2022 the trio conducted a three-city tour of Miyazaki, Tokyo and Osaka. Teruaki Suzuki’s Piano Trio No. 2 had its premiere at the Tokyo performance (Hakuju Hall). The widely acclaimed group actively incorporates newer works in addition to its classical repertoire.
The trio’s CD “Schubert & Shostakovich” was released on Nippon Acoustic Records.
