About the Boulanger Trio:

In 2006, Karla Haltenwanger, Birgit Erz and Ilona Kindt fulfilled the dream of devoting their lives to chamber music when they founded the Boulanger Trio. Twelve years later, the three musicians still find that it is a privilege to be able to practice and study the abundant, variegated repertoire of chamber music on a daily basis. Based in Hamburg and Berlin, the trio still plays in its original lineup; in the past years, it has gained an excellent reputation in the world of chamber music. The German newspaper Die Welt described a performance of the Boulanger Trio as “irresistible”, and composer Wolfgang Rihm wrote in a letter: “To be interpreted in this way is surely the great dream of every composer”.

In addition to works of the Classical and Romantic period, the commitment to contemporary music is also an important focus within the trio’s repertoire. Through its unbiased view of the works, it always finds its very own tonal language for each composer it deals with. The three artists' willingness to express themselves and the intensity with which they trace every musical detail is captivating. The three musicians, who also enjoy spending time together in private, have a strong sense of sound and a blind understanding, which makes the concerts of the trio unforgettable moments.

The ensemble is named after the sisters Nadia and Lili Boulanger, whose exceptional personalities and uncompromising devotion to music continue to be a great source of inspiration to the trio.
