"There are two means of refuge from the misery of life — music and cats." - Albert Schweitzer

Untainted and uncompromising musicality coupled with exceptional interpretive depth characterize the playing of the Delta Piano Trio, founded in Salzburg in 2013 by the three Dutch musicians Gerard Spronk, Irene Enzlin and Vera Kooper. The trio completed its studies in Salzburg, Paris and Basel with Wolfgang Redik (Vienna Piano Trio), Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Anton Kernjak and with Trio Wanderer.

Numerous prizes and awards underline the trio’s reputation, including first prizes at the international chamber music competitions Stasys Vainiunas in Lithuania, Salieri-Zinetti in Italy, Orlando in the Netherlands, at the Orpheus chamber music competition in Switzerland and, in particular, the highly endowed Kersjesprijs, the most important chamber music prize in the Netherlands, awarded in December 2020.

The Delta Piano Trio has toured Europe, Russia, Israel, China, South Korea, Indonesia, and the United States, and has performed in concert halls such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the National Center of Performing Arts in Beijing, the Gang Dong Art Center in Seoul, St. Johns Smith Square in London, and the Jerusalem Music Center. The trio collaborates regularly with contemporary composers and maintains a collaborative relationship with Russian-American composer Lera Auerbach. They frequently give chamber music masterclasses and love coaching younger ensembles.
