“It would be bet­ter to not have to describe with words how this new­ly cre­at­ed music sounds. For every word leads to famil­iar thought ter­rain, rather than to this space where the manythoughts are thought as one, rather than being inter­linked. Where clas­si­cal music, jazz, pop, folk, Irish, Balkan, and Bach are not jerk­i­ly yanked in dif­fer­ent direc­tions. Where not crossover reigns, but rather a new and youth­ful qual­i­ty of com­pos­ing and mak­ing music, old and new, seri­ous and easy-lis­ten­ing, coun­ter­point and impro­vi­sa­tion, vir­tu­os­i­ty and enter­tain­ment, are always con­strued as a one­ness direct­ly spring­ing from the musician’s biog­ra­phy.”
(Raimund Meisen­berg­er, PNP 2016)


The trios lat­est pro­gramm “I <3 Pop” is a dec­la­ra­tion of love for the true essence of the Pop-Move­ment. Strong state­ments, poet­ic imagery and deeply felt emo­tions are man­i­fest­ed through sur­pris­ing­ly sim­ple music. New Piano Trio dances with effort­less vir­tu­os­i­ty from one genre to the next.
The key to rhyth­mic com­plex­i­ty in music is to keep it smooth. “The result is poet­ry, pure poet­ry” says composer/violinist Flo­ri­an Willeit­ner. The Trio’s pianist Alexan­der Wien­and sees is as the cre­ation of “clas­si­cal Pop-Hits” while cel­list Ivan Turkalj prefers to call it “Poplex Music”. In the end, it doesn’t mat­ter how you describe it because when New Piano Trio lays it down, you’ll be left speech­less any­way.
