Basel’s no. 1 concert hall will host this year’s exclusive ECP concert. 
Hans Huber Hall, where the congress concert will take place, is the smaller of two halls, but has equally excellent room acoustics. 
The LOC has selected the “Swiss Piano Trio” to perform a classical chamber music programme full of virtuosity and poetry for the ECP audience.

Founded in 1998, the trio (consisting of Martin Lucas Staub, piano - Angela Golubeva, violin - Joël Marosi, violoncello) has gathered a remarkable reputation as an ensemble of outstanding balance and technical perfection whose interpretations electrify with emotional power and their rich and colourful sound.  
The Swiss Piano Trio has performed in concerts in more than 40 countries on all continents.
