Trio Fibonacci made its first appearance on the Canadian music scene in 1998, with the press reporting that “to hear them is to enter into the world of miracles” (Le Devoir, Montreal). They have been guided by some of the world’s most respected chamber musicians, including Menahem Pressler, members of the Alban Berg, Guarneri and Vermeer String Quartets, and by their mentors Eberhard Feltz and Michael Vogler in Berlin.
Trio Fibonacci is internationally recognized for its brilliant interpretations of the entire piano trio repertoire, from the works of Haydn through to collaborations with over sixty living composers on four continents. Their concert tours have led them to several European countries, to Argentina, South Africa, Brazil and Japan, to Berlin, San Francisco and New York. Trio Fibonacci has performed for television in Canada, China, and Brazil, and their concerts have been broadcast on Canadian, German, Belgian and Chilean radio networks.
Trio Fibonacci is:
Julie-Anne Derome, violin - Winner of the prestigious 2003 Virginia Parker Prize of the Canada Council for the Arts, given to underline her innovative work as a performer. She received a special prize at the 1992 Yehudi Menuhin Competition in Paris for her interpretation of Anthèmes by Boulez, and in 1996 released a CD of twentieth century solo violin works resulting in the BBC Music Magazine hailing her as "a star in the making".
Gabriel Prynn, cello - Gabriel is a soloist, a member of the Trio Fibonacci, and a guest artist with diverse ensembles, notably the Ensemble Alternance in Paris. Gabriel has taught at École Normale de Musique (France), Royal Academy of Music (UK), Conservatory of Belgrade (Serbia), Conservatory of Nagoya (Japan), and Hochschule Hanns Eisler (Germany). Musical Toronto says, "Prynn has a particularly silken bowing arm and remarkable control. Everything played was poised, seamless and impeccably shaped."
Maxim Shatalkin, piano - Laureate of the 2004 Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation Award, the 2012 Rachmaninoff International Competition in St. Petersburg, and the 2013 Vienna International Piano Competition, and winner of the prestigious 2006 Swedish International Duo Competition with cellist Alexander Zababurkin. As a member of the Kudriakova-Shatalkin Piano Duo, he was also a prizewinner in the 2015 International Competition Pietro Argento in Italy and the 2016 International Chamber Music Ensemble Competition in Boston (USA).”...a masterfully driven piano artist,… overall an incredible, dazzling virtuosity”.
