The Greenwich Trio has been described by legendary Bernard Greenhouse as the new "Beaux Arts Trio". These outstanding gifted musicians joined forces in August 2006, and since the very beginning the ensemble has gained appraisal in their numerous performances. The trio won both the first and the audience prize of the Cavatina Chamber Music Competition, a result that was followed by a series of highly praised concerts all around Europe. They are the current holders of the first prize in the Trinity Laban Chamber Music Competition, and of the first and special prizes at the International Chamber Music Competition in Candelo, Italy.

Under the attentive protection of Trinity College of Music, The Greenwich Trio has received coaching from Deniz Gelenbe, being closely guided by artists such as Martino Tirimo and Rivka Golani. Besides, they have received master classes from  Bernard Greenhouse (Beaux Arts Trio),  Klaus Maetzl (Alban Berg Quartet), Wihan Quartet, The Schubert Ensemble, The Rosamunde Trio, The Arman Trio, William Aide, and Ivry Gitlis amongst many others. Barely one year after its formation, the ensemble counts itself as one of the most refined, passionate and energetic trios of the music scene, with performances that have taken by storm audiences in Germany, Italy and the US.

Their success home and abroad is leading them to perform in important music festivals around Europe including a forthcoming concert in St. Martin in-the-Fields.


Stjepan Hauser, violoncello

Croatian cellist Stjepan Hauser, already known for his magical, unique, and charismatic performances, is one of the leading cellists today. Only in his very early twenties, he has already performed in the biggest venues in Europe. As soloist he has performed with many major orchestras in this country and abroad. Most recently, his superb interpretation of Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No.1 with the Orchestra Sinfonica del Friuli Venezia Giulia in Italy was enthusiastically praised by audience and all media coverage. Stjepan Hauser has given a series of outstanding performances in Croatia, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Austria, Albania, Germany, France, Italy, the USA, United Kingdom, performing in their biggest festivals and with a highly acclaimed debut in Wigmore Hall in November 2005.

In total, Stjepan has collected 19 first prizes among national and international competitions. During his time in London Stjepan won twice MBF Music Education Award 2005 and 2006, the prestigious Frankopan Award, 1st prize in the Vivian Joseph Classical Concerto competition, 1st prize in the Leonard Smith & Felicity Young Competition 2007 and first prize in the Vera Kantrovich Bach Competition.

Stjepan has impressed and worked with the most famous artists such as Mstislav Rostropovich, Heinrich Schiff, Bernard Greenhouse, Ralph Kirshbaum, Karine Georgian, Young-Chang Cho, Hyoung-Won Chang, Silvia Sondeckiene, Valter Despalj, Reinhard Latzko, Karloy Botvay, Natalia Pavlutskaya, Alexander Ivashkin, Daniel Weiss, Ivry Gitlis, and Rivka Golani. Currently he is completing his studies under the guidance of Natalia Pavlutskaya in London.

In 2006 he was the only cellist chosen to perform in the gala concert at Palazzo Vecchio, Florence for the late Mstislav Rostropovich. This was followed by an invitation to perform at the most prestigious concert venues in Europe.

Stjepan has appeared on film performing for the late Russian master - documentary film - and in his stunning rendition of Bruch's Kol Nidrei together with Metropolitan Sinfonia, filmed by the BBC. In December 2007 Stjepan will perform on the Gala concert in St George's Bristol, as a tribute to Mr. Rostropovich where he will dedicate his interpretation of Kol Nidrei to him.

Stjepan is now closely guided by Maestro Bernard Greenhouse, and had the immense honour to be invited to study with the trio in his house in Massachusetts to work on all the main music literature.
