BUDAPEST TRIO

The Budapest Trio was founded in 1980 by the Hungarian Ferenc Kiss, leader of the State Philharmonic of Rhineland-Palatinate, and soon gained international renowned. The violinist’s partners, violist Tivadar Popa (also from Hungary) and cellist Peter Wopke, are themselves renowned soloists like Kiss. The three musicians are particularly interested in contemporary music; many works have been dedicated to them. Ferenc Kiss plays an Andrea Guarneri from 1671; Popa plays a Pressenda viola from 1831 and Wopke plays a Grancino cello from 1699. On this release, they present works by Mozart- the Divertimento No. 1 in B flat Major K 229, the Flute Quartet in D Major K 285, the Divertimento in E flat Major K 563, which Alfred Einstein called “The most accomplished and finest work which has ever been heard in this world.”
