The name Trio Eccentrico (Eccentric Trio in English) was chosen because thegroup was founded by three musicians, each coming from their own artistic experiences, who have been pursuing this unusual project for almost fifteenyears, collaborating outside of their respective professional fields. The adjective “eccentric” refers to the fact that the group is not strictly “classical”, in fact it is a esthetically distant from the common idea of a chamber trio, which was more successful thanks to the use of the violin, cello and piano; but it is similar inthe tone, color and care of expression, which is always rigorous and elegant. In November 2002, Trio Eccentrico also played in France, where it gathered critical acclaim and applause from the audience who saw the three musicians perform in the picturesque setting of the Nieul Castle, near Limoges. Trio Eccentrico also distinguished it self for winning first prize as best chamber ensemble at the City of Vignola International Music Competition (near Modena) where it received rave reviews from Maestros Sergio Perticaroli and Maureen Jones. In summer 2003, the three musicians attended the chamber music masterclass for wind instruments held by the instructors of “Quintetto Bibiena” at the International Chigiana Academy of Siena.
