Furthermore, the accio piano trio is a winner of Musica Juventutis and made its debut at Wiener Konzerthaus in October 2015. In 2016 the trio could commission a new work to the Austrian composer Jakob Gruchmann. His trio “Schneekammer” was premiered at Goldegg Castle (Austria) with other Early Works of great composers. The concert program was aired by the Austrian national radio.
