The Amatis Piano Trio is a piano trio formed in 2014 in Amsterdam. It is one of the few full-time piano trios in Europe. The ensemble became BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2016 and European Concert Hall Organisation Rising Stars in 2018 after being selected by Konzerthaus Dortmund, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and Kölner Philharmonie.[1][2] In 2019 the trio was appointed ‘Resident Chamber Ensemble’ at University of Cambridge.[3] The Amatis Trio now plays at major festivals such as the The Proms, Edinburgh International Festival and concert venues including Konzerthaus Berlin, Wigmore Hall London, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Alte Oper Frankfurt.[4][5] The ensemble has performed Triple Concerto (Beethoven) with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester.[6]

In 2019, following the release of their debut CD of Enescu, Ravel and Britten, the Trio were named as Gramophone (magazine) ‘One To Watch’.[7]
