When three young musicians met in 1995 for playing chamber music in addition to their engagement in leading positions at the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden (Saxon State Orchestra Dresden) and the MDR‐Sinfonieorchester (Symphonic Orchestra of the Central German Broadcasting Station), respectively, the Dresden String Trio was born.
Inspired by compositions for string trio by famous composers of the 20th century like Jean Françaix, Alfred Schnittke and Ernst von Dohnányi, the challenge was to discover this type of chamber music, usually being overshadowed by string quartets. The three musicians wanted to help these compositions with their specifics to a new flowering on stage.
Already the first concerts confirmed the expectations of the three Saxon musicians. The press praised their performance as 'delicate chamber music at the fingertips' and attested them to 'having revealed themselves to be a fine‐sounding trinity par excellence' as well as to 'remind the audience of the legendary Trio Italiano d'Archi'.
Invitations to established concert podia in Germany like the Dresden Semper Opera, the Munich Philharmonic as well as to several music festivals like the Vreden Music Festival, the Saxon‐Bohemian Music Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival, and the Music Summer of the Central German Broadcasting Station followed.
