ZILLIACUS PERSSON RAITINEN

This is the best Ihave ever written – so far, said Beethoven about the string trios op. 9. It is performed here by one of the most prominent chamber ensembles in the Nordic countries. The string trio ZilliacusPerssonRaitinen was formed in 1999 and is constantly exploring the compelling string trio repertoire, seeking as well to expand it by commissioning works. The trio frequently collaborates with other chamber musicians in forming various quartets and other ensembles. It has played with Bengt Forsberg, Per Tengstrand, Mikael Helasvuo, Christian Ihle Hadland, Martti Rousi, Christoffer Sundqvist and Martin Fröst, among others. In addition to its own concert projects, the trio has performed at a variety of chamber music festivals. In Sweden, it has been a guest at the Lappland, Junsele, Båstad, Linköping and Grythyttan festivals, as well as at the special music events ”Tengstrand 06” in Växjö and ”MADE in Umeå” in Umeå. It has also played at the Åland, Turku and Korsholm festivals in Finland and at Bergen and Kristiansand in Norway.
