Trio Belli - Fischer - Rimmer
Trio Belli-Fischer-RimmerThe Deutsche Musikrat prizewinners Frederic Belli, Johannes Fischer (percussion) and Nicholas Rimmer (piano), formed Trio Belli-Fischer-Rimmer for the Bundesauswahl "Konzerte junger Künstler". All three musicians have been awarded numerous prizes in national and international competitions and perform worldwide as soloists or chamber musicians.

Nicholas Rimmer is a much sought-after chamber music player, Lieder accompanist and pianist with the Leibnitz-Trio. He also teaches at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media. Johannes Fischer is percussion professor at the Lübeck Academy of Music and is also a composer and conductor.

It was already clear during the exceptionally successful 2008/9 concert season that this unusual combination of trombone, piano and drums would continue, in spite of the three members' other commitments as soloists and musicians. The trio skillfully blends a variety of epochs and styles in their program. Sometimes using their own arrangements, they present music from Bach to Xenakis, Debussy to Piazolla, spanning classical, jazz and new music with such musical joie de vivre and exploring the versatile possibilities of their instruments.

The trio has commissioned several new works for the 2011/12 season, so it will be exciting to see what the future has in store for the three musicians and their audiences in terms of unconventional directions beyond traditional listening habits.
