In 2014, the Sitkovetsky Trio released their first recording for BIS Records with works by Smetana, Suk and Dvořák to much critical acclaim. This led to further releases of works by Brahms and Schubert on the Wigmore Live Label and another recording for BIS of Mendelssohn Trios, as well as Beethoven’s Trios, Op. 1 and Op. 70, and Allegretto in B-flat major for Piano Trio, WoO 39. The album received a Diapason d’Or ARTE and was released as Vol. 1 of a complete Beethoven cycle. In July 2021, the Trio’s fifth album — Ravel Trio and Saint-Saëns Trio No. 2 — was released to great critical acclaim and received a Supersonic Award from Pizzicato Magazine.
Highlights of the 2023/2024 season include concerts at the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Brucknerhaus Linz, the Cologne Philharmonie and the Elbphilharmonie.
