In the 17 years of its existence the trio has performed in the renowned concert halls of Europe and Asia such as the Sala Verdi in Milan, the Wigmore Hall in London, the Musees Royaux des Beaux Arts de Belgique in Brussels, the Auditorio Centro Cultural Conde Duque in Madrid, the Auditorio Winterthur in Barcelona, the Concertgebouw Rotterdam, the Concert Hall of the Royal Dublin Society, the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris, the Beijing Concert Hall, the Shanghai Concert Hall, the Viennese Konzerthaus and others. Nowadays the Vienna Mozart Trio is one of a small group of ensembles known in virtually all the important music centres.
What distinguishes the Wiener Mozart-Trio from similar ensembles is its composition. A quest for ?musical affinity? and the development of a personal musical relationship lead to a common musical language. For musicians with a different artistic background this process ends up as being long, difficult and often unsuccessful.
For the musicians of the Wiener Mozart-Trio mutual personal relationship and ?musical affinity? are absolute priority. These aspects are the very basis of the ensemble. Hence it is the common musical language and the specific sound to characterize and distinguish the ensemble.
Irina, Daniel and Diethard Auner are not bound by any contracts with orchestras or other ensembles. Their artistic independence enables them to achieve a musically free and unconventional interpretation of utmost intensity.The musicians consider it as their vocation to convey music as a spontaneous and original experience. As a result, they have made a wide audience familiar with all epochs and styles and all the possibilities of musical expression, ranging from the great Viennese classics - with W.A. Mozart as one of the earliest composers of the musical genre of the piano trio - to the present day.
The trio's repertoire comprises practically all the works for piano trio (W.A. Mozart, J. Haydn, L. van Beethoven, F. Schubert, F. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, J. Brahms, A. Dvorák, F. Chopin, F. Smetana, E. Lalo, P. Tchaikovsky, S. Rachmaninov, S. Taneyev, C. Franck, C. Saint-Saens, M. Ravel, D. Shostakovich, E. Chausson, G. Fauré, D. Milhaud and others).
