The Amatis Piano Trio has been appointed as the new holders of the University of Cambridge’s Chamber Music Residency, supported by Homerton College.

The trio will work with student composers at Cambridge to continue enriching the piano trio repertoire, providing mentoring for chamber groups, ensembles and individual players within the university. They will perform at West Road Concert Hall, Homerton College and elsewhere.

Founded in 2014 by German violinist Lea Hasusmann, British cellist Samuel Shepherd and Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han, the Amatis Piano Trio regularly performs at concert venues across the world such as the Concertgebouw, the Elbphilharmonie and Wigmore Hall. In 2018/19 they were ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) Rising Stars artists, and between 2016 – 2018 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists.
