Stefan Heinzemeyer - Jury Trio for Piano, Violin and Violoncello 2021
... actually, it´s always been piano trio ....
Berlin based Stefan Heinemeyer started playing the cello at the age of four. He studied with Stanislav Apolin in Prague and with Markus Nyikos at the University of the Arts in his hometown. While at the University in Berlin he met violinist Annette von Hehn and pianist Thomas Hoppe in 2003. After a first meeting and the first measures played together, they quickly decided to form the ATOS Trio.
During their studies with the legendary Alban Berg Quartet, they searched for a unique trio sound: the three artists combine their voices into a uniquely intimate, complex and warm expression. Numerous prizes and awards at internationally renowned competitions document their early success. The ATOS Trio is a guest on the most important chamber music stages in the world and is praised by the press for its successful CD recordings.
Stefan Heinemeyer teaches chamber music at the Hochschule fur Musik Hannover and at the Accademia Perosi in Biella, Italy.
