A spark immediately ignited when the paths of three different musician personalities crossed: the internationally active concert harpist Stephanie Wunsch, also a music mediator at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, the much sought-after flutist Johannes Hustedt, a guest at renowned music festivals on all continents, and his wife, Chai Min Werner, who found her way to professional alphorn-playing via unconventional paths.

Audiences and concert organisers were immediately thrilled by the wonderful sound of this unique trio and by their openness for new musical experiences. The three members of the Trio Aperto have been true shooting stars ever since: they have received numerous invitations to concert series and festivals in Germany and abroad, including, for example, performances at the 10th anniversary of the ADAMS International Flute Festival in the Netherlands in 2015. In addition, the Trio Aperto initiates projects in music mediation for all ages, as well as seminars for the development of the personality. New works for the Trio have already been created in cooperation with international composers including David Babcock, Pascal Jugy, Siegmund Schmidt and Hans-Jürg Sommer.

It is a delight to hear and see the Trio Aperto - the way they carry off listeners into the world of great Western music, where rediscoveries of precious musical rarities and agreeable Alpine sounds meet at a crossroads. Let yourself be enchanted by the Trio Aperto as well!

   

"It will immediately become apparent to the listener that the alphorn possesses more depth than anything he/she may have so far heard on any Alpine meadow. This is especially due to the fact that Chai Min Werner is able to coax a rich, full-mouthed sound from it." Mittelbadische Presse

"Stephanie Kopf breathes a great deal of life into her harp and stuns audiences with her virtuosity. Johannes Hustedt on the transverse flute proved himself a master of refined, subtly nuanced tones. The improvisation in which all three musicians provided evidence of their top-notch qualities brought forth the pronounced enthusiasm of the audience." Acher-Rench-Zeitung

"The music of the Trio, which is rather rarely heard in such a combination, was profoundly moving. If one usually associates the sound of the alphorn with high-mountain idylls and folklore in the alpenglow, the sustained melodies of this music opened one's senses whilst expanding one's horizon." Badisches Tagblatt

"The deep, full tone of the alphorn - made of coniferous wood over three metres long - and the lightly airy, bright runs on the flute, resulted in a unique contrast. A moving evening." Pforzheimer Zeitung

"Unusual: in the wonderful combination of alphorn with flute and harp, but also as soloists, the musicians enchanted their guests, who were not stingy with their applause." Verdener Aller-Zeitung
