Busch Trio

Formed in London in 2012 and named after the legendary violinist and chamber musician Adolf Busch, the Busch Trio is comprised of pianist Omri Epstein, violinist Mathieu van Bellen (who plays the Guadagnini violin once used by Busch himself), and cellist Ori Epstein. Winners of the Royal Overseas League Competition in 2012, the Busch Trio has given concerts all over Europe and in China. Their debut recording was a critically acclaimed disc of Dvořák, including the mighty Piano Trio in F minor, which will be performed in this concert. The other work on their program is Schubert’s much-loved and life-affirming B-flat Major Piano Trio.

Concert in partnership with the Embassy of Belgium – Sold out

“The Busch Trio, formed in London in 2012, is a group of considerable talent. In a Sunday afternoon recital presented by the Phillips Collection and the Belgian Embassy at the International Student House of Washington, D.C., this young piano trio demonstrated both technical chops and remarkable musical maturity.”

Charles T. Downey in the Washington Post, April 2, 2018

Read the complete review

Ambassador Wouters quoted Cocteau when presiding the launch event of the American Friends of Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, an institution created by Queen Elisabeth of Belgium who serve young generations of talented musicians from around the world.
« There was in Belgium a modest Queen of small frame and large soul who always said “I’m but an artist” and in her modesty as an artist, Elisabeth said “I’m just a queen”.”
