Named after the legendary violinist Adolf Busch, this young piano trio has emerged as one of the
leading piano trios among the new generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and
critics across Europe.

Omri Epstein, Mathieu van Bellen and Ori Epstein have all won prizes in solo international competitions. Brought together by a shared deep passion for chamber music and inspired by Mathieu’s possession of the “ex-Adolf Busch” G.B. Guadagnini violin (Turin, 1783), they have been recognized for their achievements and their playing with “incredible verve”.

Since its formation in London in 2012 the trio has developed an extensive performing schedule
across Europe’s leading concert halls and festivals. Their recent Wigmore Hall appearance was
received to critical acclaim, The Times commenting: “…what impressed most was the group’s effortless musicianship and unity of thought and attack. The threesome even seemed to be breathing in synch.”

Recent seasons included a tour of China, collaborations with Michael Collins, Bruno Giuranna and
recitals in London’s Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, King’s Place, Brussels’s Bozar and Amsterdam’s
Concertgebouw. Their recent performance in Brussels of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the
Warsaw Symphony Orchestra and Karina Canellakis was broadcast live on Belgium’s Musiq3, and
they are frequent visitors to BBC Radio3 InTune programme, Dutch Radio4 and Germany’s

In 2016, the trio released their debut CD of Dvorak’s trios to critical acclaim, receiving a 5-stars
review in the Diapason magazine and remarked upon by the Gramophone as: “…the youthful Busch
Trio can boast one of the most notable features of their namesake: a pooled decision to put the music and only the music, first.” The CD is part of a 4-CD project of the complete chamber music for
piano and strings by Dvorak, after French record label Alpha Classics engaged the trio in 2015. Part
of the success of their debut CD saw it being selected as CD of the week by several radio stations
across Europe and helped win the trio the 2016 Kersjesprijs, the Netherlands’ premier chamber
music award. Winners of the 2012 Royal Overseas League Competition, the trio went on to win several prizes at international competitions including the Salieri-Zinetti Competition and the Pinerolo Competition in Italy as well as at the International Schumann Chamber Music Award in Frankfurt. They enjoyed the support of Kirckman Concert Society, Park Lane Group as well as being recipients of the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Ensemble Award among others. The trio has received guidance from
distinguished artists such as Eberhard Feltz and Andras Schiff and are currently mentored by
members of the Artemis Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels, where they are
trio in residence.

Highlights of 2017 will include the release of their second CD featuring Dvorak’s piano quartets with
violist Miguel da Silva, a return to Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw and debut performances at the
Louvre Museum in Paris and the Morgan Library in New York.
