How We Came About
It is rare that one can claim the full, pure return to a friendship after decades of absence but that’s what happened with Marie Louise and Susanne. They knew each other from their studies in Vienna but lost track throughout the years. As we all know, there is nothing easier than the internet to find long lost friends and classmates from ‘long ago’ so at one point Susanne looked her friend up and she found her!
The reunion between musicians always gives rise to the opportunity to play something together, so when the moment came, Susanne invited her Romanian pianist Ana and Swedish violinist Marie Louise to play trios with her.
We had so much fun that we wanted to do it again. And again. And again! And this is how Trio con Anima came about.
Trio con Anima means, literally, a trio with a heart (soul.) Con anima is also an Italian musical term that means with spirit, in a spirited manner, or with feeling.
We thought it fitted us.
