“Europe is different, every country is different,” says violinist Adam Bałdych, “but music is a language which can bring us together, to ones place.” He, Dutch pianist Rogier Telderman and French cellist Vincent Courtois combine and juxtapose their different sounds and heritages. That is the central concept behind this trio of equals.
“Bałdych-Courtois-Telderman produces musical poetry of the highest level”

Their music demands them to make each note have its own story. Their tendency towards economy of expression is clear when listening to the trio. The music is reflective, personal and intimate. There is deep melancholy, but within it is a particular kind of hopefulness and optimism, a desire to move forwards and create flow. And that is an aspect of the group’s work that has appealed to critics who have heard the band live: “The music unfolded completely instinctively, over and over again,” wrote Jazznu.
