Trio Chagall Federico Cardamone

Trio Chagall was founded in 2013 by Lorenzo Nguyen, Edoardo Grieco and Francesco Massimino within the Conservatory of Music “G.Verdi” of Turin. The Trio was named as a tribute to the famous painter Marc Chagall, who has always been a deep source of inspiration, as well as being admired for his ties to music and strong expressive power through the use of colour.

The Trio is now continuing its studies with Rainer Schmidt and Anton Kernjak at the Hochschule für Musik in Basel and is an Ensemble ECMA at the European Chamber Music Academy, where it receives advice from Hatto Beyerle and Patrick Jüdt.

In 2018 the Trio attended the summer masterclass with Trio di Parma within the Fondazione Santa Cecilia, obtaining the scholarship for best chamber music ensemble of the class. The ensemble also receives the precious advice of Antonio Valentino, Marco Zuccarini, Amiram Ganz and Christian Schuster (Altenberg Trio Wien) and Bruno Giuranna (Trio d'Archi Italiano). From 2020 Trio Chagall is supported by the De Sono Foundation.

Trio Chagall is involved in an intense concert activity all over Italy performing in prestigious venues (Vatican Museums in Rome, Teatro Verdi in Trieste, Reitschule in Grafenegg, Italian Institute of culture in Paris, Milan Theatre dal Verme and Conservatory, Sala Sassu in Sassari) and as a guest of Unione Musicale, Amici della Musica di Firenze, Società del Quartetto, Camerata Ducale, Accademia Chigiana, ACM - Chamber Music of Trieste, Fondazione Perugia Musica Classica, Società Umanitaria, Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino.

Trio Chagall has collaborated with Bruno Giuranna, Giampaolo Pretto and Luca Ranieri.

Hailed with great appreciation from the public and critics, Trio Chagall’s members “strike with a neat playing style, linear and clean, totally free from any kind of exaggeration or artifice, managing with ease both purity of thought and action, not at all intimidated by the technical and expressive complexity”.

Press reviews

“Both from a technical and expressive point of view, Trio Chagall […] does not appear to be a group of ex wunderkind nor of young promises, but rather an ensemble of mature musicians, able to deeply relate with the score, regardless of the composer or period."
