Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was founded in 2009 and comprises three of the finest international instrumentalists performing today. Playing chamber music together at the Pablo Casals Prades Festival, Hagai Shaham and Raphael Wallfisch recognised an immediate musical synergy. Arnon Erez joined them for trio concerts in Lucerne and the Netherlands later that year and the Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch was established. Since then the Trio has performed, broadcast and recorded widely throughout Europe and Israel. For the 2016 season, the trio will perform at the Wigmore Hall, and will follow concerts in Belgium, Holland, Germany, Poland and Canada with further performances at the Concertgebouw and a return to the Wigmore Hall. Trio Shaham Erez Wallfisch enjoys a long-standing relationship with Nimbus Records, which has issued recordings of the Mendelssohn piano trios, and discs of French and of Russian repertoire. In early 2016 the trio released an all-Brahms disc of the piano trios and the Double Concerto.
