Info for A Retrospective



In 2007 Frank Peter Zimmermann was able to realize his long-cherished dream to establish a string trio, together with Antoine Tamestit and Christian Poltéra. Three individually superb string players do not necessarily add up to a top-flight trio – even if they all play on instruments by Stradivarius, as here – but Trio Zimmermann immediately made a name for itself at international festivals and prestigious concert venues. In 2010 the trio released its first disc – with Mozart's seminal Divertimento – to critical acclaim. (More than 10 years later, that recording was the top recommendation in the Record Review series Building a Library on BBC Radio 3.)

On following offerings, the ensemble explored the later repertoire for string trio: two albums with Beethoven's contributions to the genre, and a third with works by Hindemith and Schoenberg which have garnered distinctions such as Diapason de l’Année, the Chamber Award from BBC Music Magazine and a ‘Jahrespreis’ from the German Record Critics’ Award association. For their fifth album to date the trio went back in time, however, as the three members together prepared a performing version of Bach's Goldberg Variations, described as ‘a triumph of combined technical ingenuity and musical insight’ in The Strad. These five discs have now been collected into a boxed-set retrospective, offering lovers of chamber music more than 5 hours of glorious music-making, in top-notch sound and including the original booklets with full documentation.

Trio Zimmermann



Trio Zimmermann
In 2007 the violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann was able to realize his long-cherished dream to establish a string trio, the Trio Zimmermann, together with the viola player Antoine Tamestit and the cellist Christian Poltéra. All three musicians have their own distinguished solo careers, but they happily meet for one or two short touring periods per season. The trio performs in such musical centres as Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Cologne, London, Milan, Munich, Paris, Vienna and Zürich, as well as during the festivals in Salzburg and Edinburgh. The Trio Zimmermann records for BIS Records and their award-winning releases so far include the Beethoven String Trio’s Op. 9 (Diapason d’Or de l’Année in 2012, and a BBC Music Magazine Award in 2013), Beethoven’s String Trio, Op. 3 and the Serenade, Op. 8, and the Mozart Divertimento KV 563.

Since finishing his studies with Valery Gradov, Saschko Gawriloff and Herman Krebbers, he has performed with all the world’s major orchestras, collaborating on these occasions with the world’s most renowned conductors. His many concert engagements take him to all major concert venues and international music festivals in Europe, the United States, Asia, Australia and South America. Recent additions to his wide-ranging and award- winning discography on BIS, Decca, Sony, EMI and ECM include recordings of concertos by Dvořák, Hindemith, Shostakovich and Brett Dean.

His wide repertoire extends from baroque to contemporary music and he has premiered many new and important works. He is artistic director of the Viola Space Festival in Tokyo.

He is the recipient of several awards, including the Credit Suisse Young Artists Award and first prizes at the Primrose International Viola Competition and the ARD International Music Competition. Antoine Tamestit plays on the Stradivarius viola "Mahler" from 1672, on loan from the Habisreutinger Foundation.

Christian Poltéra
was a pupil of Nancy Chumachenco, Boris Pergamenschikow and Heinrich Schiff. Between 2004 and 2006 he was a member of the prestigious New Generation Artists’ scheme of BBC Radio 3 in London and in 2004 received the Borletti-Buitoni Award.
