A quick glance at the lineup of Trio Klavis might lead to the conclusion that the sound of this ensemble is not necessarily related to classical music. Sabina Hasanova (piano), Jenny Lippl (violin) and Miha Ferk (saxophone) present themselves as an experimental friendly chamber music ensemble that follows its own musical path. The trio‘s outstanding renditions of well-known works from Viennese Classicism, Romanticism, Modernism and Dodecaphony experience a completely new interpretation, which breaks away from the ordinary and often nests in the realms of modernity.
In 2015, the ensemble received the Austrian Federal Chancellery Scholarship for Music and was awarded the Bank Austria Art Prize that same year. In 2016 the trio released their debut album “Geography of Sound” (Orlando Records). Austrian Musikfonds institution supported the production of their second album, which includes works by Johannes Brahms, Dmitri Shostakovich and Ernst Krenek. Trio Klavis were Musik Aktuell artists in 2015 and were chosen to be NASOM “New Austrian Sound of Music” artists for 2020-21.
