Since their founding in 2013, the Delta Piano Trio has performed extensively in The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Lithuania, the United Kingdom, Russia and the United States. In the spring of 2014 the trio won the first prize, as well as a special prize for the performance of a twentieth-century work, at the 7th International S. Vainiunas Chamber Music Competition in Vilnius, Lithuania. Their debut at the 4th Salzburger Kammermusikfestival, in a shared concert with the Borodin Quartet, was highly acclaimed by both audience and critics. In September 2014 the trio won a first prize at the Salieri-Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Verona, Italy. In March 2015 the trio made their United States debut at the New York Chamber Music Festival and had the chance to work with composer Lera Auerbach on her first piano trio.
In 2015 the trio won the First Prize (Prix Charles Hennen) at the Orlando Competition in The Netherlands as well as the second prize in the international Gianni Bergamo Award Competition in Switzerland. In the same year they also recorded their debut cd for Naxos Records.
"The Delta Piano Trio is currently one of the most interesting and outstanding groups in its formation. They bring all the necessary tools and talent to become one of the leading piano trios."
- Wolfgang Redik
