Artistic biography
The ACCio piano trio was formed in 2013 when three chamber-music-loving students of Mozarteum University in Salzburg - Anne, Christina and Clemens (initials ACC) - met at the Sándor Végh Institute in the chamber music class of pianist Tünde Kurucz.

They are also taking classes from violinists Wolfgang Redik (Vienna Piano Trio), Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Klara Flieder (Leschetitzky Trio), and the cellist Giovanni Gnocchi (David Piano Trio). Despite their short existence, the ensemble has already received an invitation to perform at the 4th Salzburg Chamber Music Festival in June 2014. In September 2014 a concert tour led the ensemble to play in Wuhan and Shenzhen (China). They played further concerts at the Steinway House Linz, in the chamber music hall ("Solitär") of the University Mozarteum and the Viennese Hall and the Great Hall (Salzburg) of the Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg.

The ACCio piano trio is a member of the Yehudi Menuhin - Live Music Now Salzburg scholarship program.
