The Cosmopolitan Trio is formed by three strong and wonderful soloists, each with a very different background. An Austrian violinist, Elisabeth Kropfitsch; an Indian pianist, Marialena Fernandes; and a Korean cellist, Meehae Ryo, has come together, at last to share the ideas and the wonder of international sophistication in classical music. Together, with their flawless technical virtuosity, unique style, and crystal clear music, will cross the borders and touch the hearts of many people around the world.
The trio has been connected by IMK (Verein fuer Internationale Musik und Kulturfoerderung in Wien www.schwingungen.at ), a non-profit organization founded in 1992 by Sonja Steindl.
