Trio Balthasar is a newly formed piano trio featuring pianist Iain Burnside, violinist Michael Foyle and cellist Tim Hugh. They are committed to imaginative, diverse programming and are delighted to be playing for MAX@245 for their first public appearance.

The name Balthasar was initially suggested by Burnside as a homage to the German baroque architect Balthasar Neumann. As he was on the point of rejecting it as too pretentious, his colleagues pointed out that Balthasar was also the name of one of the Wise Men in the Nativity story. From which there developed the idea of three men on a journey, bearing gifts. Individually each member of the Trio Balthasar has been praised for their vivacity, emotional depth and breathtaking playing.
