“A sigh went skating on nocturnal ice.” It has long been known that the poetry of Christian Morgenstern is filled with music. It was not until the 90th anniversary of the poet’s death, however, that a chamber music ensemble decided to name themselves after him. The three musicians of the Morgenstern Trio joined forces in 2005 at the Folkwang Academy in Essen. After just two years of intensive collaboration, the trio was given several important awards in their native Germany and across Europe. Since then, they have won the prestigious Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson International Trio Award. Learn more about Morgenstern Trio.
