"Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly closed heart opens." - Maria von Trapp

The Osiris Trio was formed in 1988. Since then, the trio has toured five continents and was twice given the honour to accompany Her Majesty The Queen of The Netherlands on an official state visit abroad. Over the past 19 years, the group has won a number of Dutch awards, including the ‘Philip Morris Finest Selection’ award and the Annie Bosboom Prijs.
Since 2001 the Dutch Ministry of Culture supports the Osiris Trio. The trio’s discography encompasses two centuries of repertoire for piano trio but also includes song cycles and the highly regarded recording of Messiaens Quatuor “pour la fin du temps” that earned the highest rating (10 out of 10) in the Dutch music magazine Luister. The Dutch newspaper Het Parool concluded its review of a CD with recently written Dutch piano trios by stating “premium international quality.”  Diversity typifies the trio’s repertoire, which ranges from Haydn’s oeuvre for piano trio to works by contemporary composers.  The production of Klas Torstenssons’s “In großer Sehnsucht” even brought the trio on stage in a theatrical setting.  The Dutch Society of Concert hall and Theatre Managers has nominated the Osiris Trio in the category “most impressive performances in chamber music”.  Ellen Corver, Peter Brunt and Larissa Groeneveld hold teaching positions at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.  Recent tours were made to the United States, Hawai, Indonesia, Sweden, France, Ireland and Turkey.
In 2013 the Osiris Trio will celebrate its 25th anniversary; there will be two world premières of works by Klaas de Vries and Oene van Geel, especially written for this happy occasion.
