“The Amatis Piano Trio is an outstanding ensemble on their way to establishing a great international career” - Prof. Daniel Hope (Beaux Arts Trio)

 The Amatis Piano Trio was founded in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hausmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han.


Only weeks after forming, the trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, which quickly lead to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw and concert engagements throughout the Netherlands. Winners of the 2015 International Parkhouse Award in Wigmore Hall, the trio went on to win several international prizes and competitions. Most recently they were awarded 1st trio at the International Joseph Joachim Competition in Weimar, Germany and named Dutch Classical Talent 2016. Soon after they were selected as BBC New Generation Artists 2016-2018.


The young, international trio has since emerged as one of the leading piano trios among the new generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the UK, Europe and Asia.


For the 2018/2019 season the trio has been selected as 'ECHO Rising Stars' by the European Concert Hall Organisation, following their nomination by the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Konzerthaus Dortmund and the Philharmonie Cologne which will see them perform in 23 of the most prestigious concert venues throughout Europe.

Rising Stars 2018/19

The highlights of the last season include performances at Wigmore Hall, the Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam, as well as concert tours to Hong Kong and Indonesia. The trio performs extensively throughout Europe, concertising in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Sweden, France, Hungary, Norway, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Regular festival appearances include performances at the Salzburg Chamber Music Festival, Grachtenfestival Amsterdam, Festival de Monteléon, the Utrecht Chamber Music Festival, Trondheim Chamber Music Festival and the Wimbledon Music Festival. In summer 2018 the trio will be performing at the Verbier Festival Academy.


The Amatis Piano Trio is also committed to contemporary music and thus founded the ‘Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize’ in 2015, encouraging young composers to further the piano trio repertoire.


Since 2015 they have worked intensively with Wolfgang Redik (Vienna Piano Trio) and Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet) and are currently enrolled in the Piano Trio Master Studies at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg.


The Amatis Piano Trio is part of the European Chamber Music Academy since 2015. Further musical influences include Hatto Beyerle, the Trio Jean Paul, Lukas Hagen, Fabio Bidini, Ilya Grubert, Anner Bylsma, Christian Schuster, Ib Hausmann, Imre Rohmann and Menahem Pressler.
