TRIO ANIMA MUNDI
Established in 2008, Trio Anima Mundi is one of Australia's most celebrated piano trios. The trio's members consist of Kenji Fujimura (piano), Rochelle, Ughetti (violin), and Noella Yan (cello).
Praised as a 'trio of vitality, charm and aplomb' (The Age), the trio has gained a reputation for their sumptuous sonorities, immaculate ensemble, and masterly interpretation. Recordings of the trio’s performances are regularly broadcast all over the world and the trio is frequently invited to perform at festivals and teach at masterclasses, including a concert tour to China in December 2018.
Trio Anima Mundi’s debut CD (2013) - Romantic Piano Trios – was selected as a Musicweb International Recording of the Year in 2013 and received rapturous reviews around the world ('as to chamber music this has to be the CD of the year and, perhaps, many years to come. – Wright Music UK). Critics hailed it as '...a top recommendation' (Fanfare USA), and described it as '...beautifully recorded in well-balanced sound, with consistently affectionate performances' (Gramophone). A much-anticipated new CD by Trio Anima Mundi (English Piano Trios) will be released in 2019.
In 2017, Trio Anima Mundi was invited to become the ensemble-in-residence at the International Academy of Musical Arts.
