The Merling Trio is recognized as one of today's premier ensembles. A truly international trio, it brings together musicians from Polish, Japanese and Dutch backgrounds, and has been hailed as a brilliantly distinguished group endowed with remarkable gifts of communication, magnificent precision and an impeccable blend of sound.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer said, "The players shaped a grand interpretation, fluent in rhythm and rich in romantic feeling." The Grand Rapids Press has said, "The trio...delivered a standard of playing that is on par with some of the best known violin-cello-piano teams, captivating the audience through the immediacy and extraordinary sensitivity of its playing." The London Musical Opinion declared that the Merling Trio "made a powerful impression, with unabashed romanticism and finesse."
In residence at the School of Music at Western Michigan University, members of the trio have also been faculty members at the Schlern International Music Festival and the ENCORE School for Strings. The Merling Trio takes its name from the Danish violin maker, Paul Merling. Currently, Mr. Uchimura performs on an Enrico Marchetti cello, made in Turin, Italy, in 1899. Ms. Knific's violin, fashioned by Vincenzo Postiglione in Naples, Italy, dates from 1898.
