Petrof Piano Trio
Wed 20th Mar 2019 – 19:30
The Petrof Piano Trio was created in 2009 by Wihan Quartet violinist, Jan Schulmeister. The members are renowned chamber-music players and bring to the ensemble over thirty years’ experience of concert activity.
In the same year as it was formed, the ensemble became the Resident Trio of the PETROF Piano Company. The Company, known for its long tradition and quality, immediately recognised that The Petrof Trio was an ensemble whose performances were at the highest level, and was keen to support it.
Since 2011 the ensemble has been Resident Trio at the International Chamber Music Course in Zábřeh na Moravě (the Czech Republic), where the members are also instructors. The Trio’s last CD release, containing trios by Mendelssohn, Bruch and Edouard Lalo, was released on NIMBUS ALLIANCE. The CD received many good reviews including The Strad who said: The scherzo is delightfully played, light and flowing, and in the finale the players demonstrate a masterly command of scale, negotiating its emotional turbulence with a prevailing sense of delicacy.

Dorset County Museum Music Society
Six fine professional chamber concerts given in St Mary’s Church and the United Church Dorchester. These temporary venues are necessitated by the closure of the Dorset County Museum building and its wonderful Victorian Hall, the home of the DCMMS for 44 years, during the extensive and hugely exciting building works – Tomorrow’s Museum for Dorset – funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund. We look forward to our return to the Museum for the start of the 2020/2021 season.
