About the Boulanger TrioFounded in Hamburg in 2006 by Karla Haltenwanger (piano), Birgit Erz (violin) and Ilona Kindt (cello), the trio is now based in Berlin and Hamburg. In 2007 the ensemble won the 4th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in Norway, followed by the Rauhe Prize for Modern Chamber Music in 2008. The ensemble has received musical guidance from Hatto Beyerle, Menahem Pressler and Alfred Brendel.
With support of the Goethe-Institute, the Boulanger trio was invited for a concert tour in Thailand and Vietnam in 2018/2019, facilitating master classes and building up lasting relations with local conservatories and musicians.
Almost exactly on the 15th birthday of the trio, they released their tenth CD called “Teach me! The students of Nadia Boulanger” in early 2021, an album dedicated to the trio’s eponymous heroine and play a highly varied program of works by Jean Françaix, Aaron Copland, Philip Glass, Leonard Bernstein, Quincy Jones and Astor Piazzolla.
