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 Osiris Trio is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Cultur. The trio`s discography emcompasses two centuries of repertoire for piano trio but also includes songcycles 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." A recording of pianotrio`s of A.Dvořák has been released in september 2009.
Diversity typifies the group`s repertoire, which ranges from Haydn`s oeuvre for piano trio to works by contemporary composers. The production of Klas Torstenssons In großer Sehnsucht even brought the trio on stage in a theatrical setting. The Dutch Society of Concerthall and Theatre Managers recently nominated the Osiris Trio in the category "most impressive performances in chamber music." All members 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 and France. In June 2007, the trio has established its own chamber music festival in the beautiful rural estate of Oranjewoud in Friesland. Over 15 concerts in three days were completely sold out and were given highest praise by audiences and the press.

It was a pleasure to recover our national spirit, one of a homeland with a heart, without territorial boundaries in the music. We still have a preference for open melodies, which simplicity never becomes trivial, and which keeps the passionate rhetorics full of fair aspirations.
ci fa piacere ritrovare il nostro spirito nazionale di una patria del cuore, prima che dei confini territoriali nella musica. Sul pentagramma resistono i fossili del nostro gusto per l’aperto melodiare, per una semplicità mai banale, per l’ap passionata retorica intinta di fiere aspirazioni.

"All things put together we can conclude that this is an attractive CD for listeners who want something different than the traditional repertoire and want to wallow for an hour in beautiful, famous opera melodies."
Marjolijn Sengers, Luister, September/October 2011
"Het resultaat is een cd vol sentiment en pathos, vaak uiterst zangerig, zoals een opera betaamt. En daarbij zo direct opgenomen dat de cello zijn woordenloze boodschap sensueel in je oor lijkt te fluisteren." Akkoord Magazine - Aug-Sept
"The result is a CD full of sentiment and pathos, often very melodious, as it befits an opera. The recording is very direct and in that way the cello seems to sensually whisper its wordless message in your ear." Akkoord Magazine - Aug-Sept
