The desire to search for sound patterns and images, a great passion to perform music together and the will to convey musical compositions in all their variety have inspired the ensemble to its name Trio Imàge.
Music brought Gergana Gergova and Pavlin Nechev together already in their early childhoods. Thomas Kaufmann joined in 2008, completing the trio’s present-day appearance. The young ensemble attracted international attention with performances in Berlin’s Philharmonie as well as Konzerthaus, at the Lockenhaus Kammermusikfest, the Verbier Festival, the Schubertiade, the Varna Summer Festival, the Herrenchiemsee Festspiele, the Chelsea Music Festival New York as well as the Novemberfest in Chennai and the Festival de Mexico.
Trio Imàge have been award winners at major international competitions such as Schubert und die Musik der Moderne, Joseph Joachim, Kammermusikpreis der Commerzbank-Stiftung and they have been selected to represent German art within the worldwide programs of the Goethe Institute since 2009.
Mainly influenced by Eberhard Feltz and Andreas Reiner, the trio has also gained musical experience with the likes of Menahem Pressler, Heinrich Schiff, Gabor Takacs - Nagy, Hatto Beyerle, Anner Bylsma, Shmuel Ashkenazy and Ferenc Rados.
Trio Imàge are giving concerts in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, and are especially committed to working with young talent, holding master classes and workshops in Germany, Bulgaria, India and Venezuela.
