Oliver Schnyder Trio

Chamber Music

Andreas Janke, violin
Benjamin Nyffenegger, cello
Oliver Schnyder, piano




The Oliver Schnyder Trio made their debut at the Zurich Tonhalle in 2012. Their recording of Schubert’s Piano Trios was hailed „a new benchmark recording“ by the magazine Die Bühne and was chosen as „Switzerland’s Best Classical Album of the Year“ by the Aargauer Zeitung. This immediate success was confirmed by the recording of Brahms’ complete Piano Trios, which also received great critical acclaim and was given a “Milestone” from Musik & Theater. Their latest recording „Winterreisen“ with the German tenor Daniel Behle, was selected “CD of the month” by the Opernwelt and awarded a Super- sonic Award by Pizzicato.

Past and present concert appearances and festival residences include the SWR Schlossfestspiele Ettlingen, WDR Funkhaus Köln, Liederhalle Stuttgart, Festspiele Baden-Baden, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Schloss Elmau, Meisterzyklus Bern, Neue Konzertreihe Zürich, Ittinger Pfingskonzerte, Menuhin Festival Gstaad, Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw, Musikdorf Ernen, the Hirzenberg Festival and the festival Universum Beethoven, where they took part in a complete cycle of Beethoven’s Piano Trios at Boswil and Muri. The OST annually tours the Far East and frequently teams up with musicians such as Daniel Behle, Vilde Frang, Nils Mönkemeyer and Lars Anders Tomter.

“The Schnyder are superb. Oliver Schnyder is a fastiduously articulate pianist whose scales and runs are strung like perfectly matched pearls. Violinist Andreas Janke and cellist Benjamin Nyffenegger play with a rich, finely focused tone that blends seamlessly, and their intonation is flawless.”

Andrew Farach-Colton


“The audience held their breath the whole time. At the end it rose to a long standing ovation.”
