“… the performers brought a spontaneity and freshness to the music with the inventive nature of the material really shining through. This was an evening of first rate music making … the performances were exceptionally fine.” Seen & Heard International (Wigmore Hall, 20th January 2016)

Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was founded in 2009 and comprises three of the finest international instrumentalists performing today.
Playing chamber music together at the Pablo Casals Prades Festival Hagai Shaham and Raphael Wallfisch recognised an immediate musical synergy. Arnon Erez joined them for trio concerts in Lucerne and the Netherlands later that year and the Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was established. Since 2009 the Trio have performed, broadcast and recorded widely throughout Europe and Israel. The 14/15 season saw the trio touring the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, France, Israel, Spain and returning to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for two concerts. Amongst other recitals, the trio will perform at the Wigmore Hall in January 2016, give concerts in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Poland and Canada followed by further performances at the Concertgebouw and a return to the Wigmore Hall.
Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch enjoys a longstanding relationship with Nimbus Records with whom to date they have recorded the Mendelssohn piano trios, a disc of French repertoire, one of Russian repertoire and an all-Brahms 2CD including the Double Concerto with the Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie, the latter having been released in July 2016.
