Fortas Chamber Music Concerts: Trio Con Brio Copenhagen
Jens Elvekjaer, piano
Soo-Jin Hong, violin
Soo-Kyung Hong, cello
There are times when two plus two can equal three. Korean sisters Soo-Jin and Soo-Kyung Hong have played together since childhood. After Soo-Kyung married Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer, the couple played piano and cello duos for years. In 1999, the two pairs came together to form Trio con Brio Copenhagen. Now these family ties, cultures, and musical connections all converge to color, shape, and energize the concerts they present worldwide. Celebrated internationally the trio occupies a lofty perch in todays musical scene (The Washington Post).
