The Aspen String Trio

About the Aspen String Trio

Sold-out houses and standing ovations characterize the performances of the renowned Aspen String Trio. After more than 20 years of friendship and music-making, Aspen String Trio members David Perry, Victoria Chiang, and Michael Mermagen are an ensemble with magical synergy. These three world-class instrumentalists each have a long-time association as artist-faculty with the Aspen Music Festival; combined they have performed across the globe in the world’s most prestigious venues. “The energy, spontaneity, and sheer enjoyment we find together is a constant inspiration to us, and a joy to our audiences!”

They delight in offering—with humor and insight—virtuoso performances of the rich string trio repertoire, including works by Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert, as well as lesser known blockbuster works by Dohnanyi, Hindemith, Martinů, Rozsa, Gideon Klein, Veress, Villa-Lobos and Ysaÿe, among others. Recent and upcoming performances and residencies include Chicago, the Los Angeles Music Guild, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, the University of Delaware, and Baltimore, where for six seasons they were the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Baltimore. A notable upcoming recording project includes the string trios and other music of Martinů for the Naxos label. A regular on Baltimore’s Classical Station WBJC, the Aspen String Trio is regularly featured on “Face the Music” and “Music in Maryland.”
