About the Artists

Danish Clarinet Trio has given concerts in Italy, England, Wales, Denmark and Brazil. Since meeting at Ensemble MidtVest in 2011, Tommaso Lonquich, Jonathan Slaatto and Martin Qvist Hansen have enjoyed a fertile and exciting collaboration, specializing in two areas of musical research and performance. They have delivered interpretations of the eternal masterpieces for clarinet trio, such as the works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms, while aiming to shine a light on neglected gems by Danish composers like Per Norgaard and Vagn Holmboe.

 

Lonquich, Slaatto and Hansen collectively hold numerous honors, such as prizes at the ARD Competition in Munich, and membership in the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme in London and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York. With Ensemble MidtVest, they have appeared on several live broadcasts for the BBC and the Danish Radio. They have recorded the Trio Eco of Vagn Holmboe for DaCapo as well as several other works in duo settings for DaCapo and CPO.
