Rapidly achieving international recognition as one of the leading guitar ensembles of the new generation, Salzburg Guitar Trio engages its audiences with their energetic presence and deeply emotional performances. Salzburg Guitar Trio is comprised of Katie Lonson (Canada), Stefan Volpp (Germany) and Andrew Booth (England). The ensemble was originally formed with Izan Rubio (Spain) whilst finalizing their postgraduate solo guitar studies at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg, Austria, and was joined by Stefan Volpp in 2020. Their unique repertoire includes newly commissioned works for guitar trio and transcriptions of orchestral and keyboard works by the finest composers.
Salzburg Guitar Trio has performed extensively throughout Europe. Recent highlights include a televised concert at the ‘Garrigues Guitar Festival’, a tour of the northwestern provinces of Spain, and concerts in music festivals and concert series such as the ‘Tübingen International Guitar Festival‘, ‘ The Hague Guitar Society’, ‘Costa Dourada Music Festival’, ‘Guitar Festival ‘Ciutat D’Elx’’, ’Valle dei Laghi International Guitar Festival’ and the ‘Stuttgart International Classic Guitar Festival’.
One of the trio’s most exciting projects was their time spent as artists in residence based in Antonin Gaudi’s famous modernist building, ‘La Pedrera’, in Barcelona. During the residency, Catalan composer Jose Galeote dedicated his work ‘La Pedrera - En Construcció’ to the trio. Inspired by Gaudi’s remarkable architecture, the trio had the pleasure of premiering the work inside La Pedrera. As winners of the Guitar Foundation of America’s International Ensemble Competition, the Salzburg Guitar Trio will be touring the USA and Canada in Spring 2023.
“Chamber music prize winners Salzburg Guitar Trio displayed, without doubt,
all of the qualities that earned them this prestigious accolade.
Through their perfect ensemble and well-blended sound,
the trio showed spontaneity and freshness in their interpretations.
Their carefully chosen program delighted all those in attendance.”
— CIUTAT D'ELX GUITAR FESTIVAL, 2018
“The concert by the Salzburg Guitar Trio has been one of the
most mesmerizing and memorable concerts in our concerts series.
Their virtuosity, timing and sound colour made three guitars sound like one.
To have three plucked instruments play together in such a way is truly remarkable.”
— MARTIN VAN HEES, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF THE HAGUE GUITAR SOCIETY, 2021
