The Phaeton Piano Trio with Friedemann Eichhorn, violin, Peter Hörr, cello, and Florian Uhlig, piano — three German artists with an international career as chamber musicians and soloists — is based in Weimar, Germany. As soloists, the artists have been successfully touring the major stages throughout Europe, in Asia and North and South America for more than twenty years. Since joining forces a few years ago, they have been enjoying the treasures of the piano trio repertoire in concerts throughout Germany, in the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and South America. In the spring of 2018, in addition to their performances in, e.g., Zurich, Bonn, Munich, Berlin and Paris, the trio also embarked on a cycle of recordings of works by Mendelssohn and his contemporaries.
