Mozart’s first three full-fledged piano trios were composed in his most prolific period: in the summer and autumn of 1786. At that time he had spent five years in Vienna, and the aristocratic circles were beginning to recognize his extraordinary genius. He gave solo piano recitals, worked as a conductor on a regular basis, rehearsed his own compositions, received private students, and was involved in the social life of the imperial capital. Two years later Mozart added three new grandiose piano trios to the repertory of the chamber music genre. They are preceded by two pieces: the first is one of the composer’s early chamber works, followed by a piece compiled by Abbé Stadler from various musical fragments and entitled Three movements for piano trio. Pianist Marta Gulyas holds the Liszt Prize, and has been a teacher at the Liszt Academy since 1978 and a professor at the Madrid Royal Conservatory since 1991. Two time MIDEM award-winner violinist Vilmos Szabadi works as an associate professor at the Liszt Academy of Music as the Head of Violin Department. As a leading violoncellist of his generation Csaba Onczay has been awarded several prestigious prizes including the Liszt Prize, the Meritorious Artist Award, and the Kossuth Prize. He currently teaches at the Liszt Academy as a professor emeritus. Viola player Mate Szucs performs with renowned musicians and ensembles across the world, and has taught viola at the Karajan Academy of the orchestra since 2013. He has been teaching at the Liszt Academy since 2015.
