Trio Zimmermann
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Trio Zimmermann is a remarkable chamber group: three performers " violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltra " who are revered international soloists in their own right, and who together have reinvigorated the string trio as a musical form.

Following inspirational International Festival recitals in 2010, 2012 and 2015, they return with one of the true monuments of classical music. Bachs mighty Goldberg Variations takes the listener on a profound journey through endless invention and boundless emotion. Trio Zimmermann pair it with the searching intensity of Schoenbergs thrillingly virtuosic String Trio.
