Trio Valentin - a young prize winning pianotrio from The Norwegian Academy of Music had their first concert at Café de Concert on Apri 15th performing Brahms and Ravel pianotrios in addition to the Franck sonata for violin and piano. Oda Hilde, violin
Ivan Valentin, cello and Ole Christian Haagenrud, piano, performed like an already well experienced trio and rocked our crib like never before! Café de Concert is now embraceing this trio with the intention of shipping them to NYC and other cool cities around the globe for other great performances. Stay tuned, don´t miss their next performance at Café de Concert :)
