The Turmo String Trio is a young and new ensemble, with a desire to take us back to the moments when great music was born, be it by Beethoven, Bach or Brahms, and highlight the composer’s genius by bringing the music back to our present moment. The members of the trio enjoy as much having fun as friends as playing on the stage, a spirit which reinforces their artistic performance.
