The string trio TRIOLOGY was founded in 1995 by the British violinist Daisy Jopling, the Russian violinist Aleksey Igudesman and the German cellist Tristan Schulze in Vienna. Since there are very few compositions for the cast of 2 violins and cello, the musicians decide to write their own works. It began with arrangements by Astor Piazzolla, Paco de Lucia and Ennio Morricone, soon followed by own compositions of all members of the group, with more than 70 pieces accounted for the lion's share of the studied composer Schulze.
The first CD "Triology plays Ennio Morricone" created international attention. Extensive concert tours took the musicians to Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia, the USA and Mexico. The three were influenced by the study trips to Ireland, India, Senegal, Ghana and Argentina.
In 2008 the ways of the ensemble split up. Daisy Jopling moved to New York from where she undertook international concert tours with the Daisy Jopling Band. She is increasingly dedicated to working with young female musicians, who knows how to inspire them with her enthusiastic joy of playing. Aleksey Igudesman and his music & comedy duo partner Hyung-Ki Joo enthrall and cheer concert audiences in the great halls of the world and Tristan Schulze composes operas (Vienna State Opera, Theater an der Wien), instrumental concertos (Gewandhaus Leipzig, Konzerthaus Wien) and film music for award-winning wildlife documentaries.
