Praised for “spot-on ensemble playing and a beautifully blended sound” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and their “rich, committed string tone, dazzling pianism, rhythmic flexibility, and risky tempi” (Sarasota Herald Tribune), the Delphi Trio has become a powerfully eloquent voice in the world of chamber music.
Prizewinners of the 2015 Orlando Concours in the Netherlands, the Delphi Trio has performed in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Canada, and across the United States. Venues of note include the Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington DC), the Green Center (Sonoma CA), the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival (Detroit area, MI), and others. The trio’s debut album, Triptych, has been praised by Classical Music Daily as “an invigorating mixture of past and present, brilliantly executed and sumptuously recorded, which is truly worth investigating.” Their performance of Brahms was described by Gramophone as “completely at one with Brahms’ concentrated writing.”
The Delphi Trio is grounded in the immensely rich classic repertoire for piano trio and is committed to the exploration of its deep, lasting meaning for performers and audience alike. The Trio sees contemporary music as a natural extension of the standard repertoire and is therefore dedicated to the music of our time. Delphi has given acclaimed world premieres of William Bolcom’s Piano Trio (2014), Max Stoffregen’s Coyote Plan (2013), and Sahba Aminikia’s Deltangi-ha (2012) and Shab o Meh (2014). The Trio will be premiering a new triple concerto by Clarice Assad in the 2020-21 season.
The Delphi Trio believes in the power of music to create community and social change. They curate the Practice Project, a social media group dedicated to fostering community, openness, and vulnerability among both professional and amateur artists. As part of the Delphi Prison Project, they bring music to incarcerated individuals with the goal of encouraging emotional self-knowledge and self-expression through art.
Violinist Liana Berube, cellist Tanya Tomkins, and pianist Allegra Chapman are based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
