Díaz Trio’s Traditional Strings
One of the few professional string trios in existence today, the Díaz Trio has become one of the finest chamber ensembles in the United States. Composed of three internationally acclaimed artists, Andrés Cárdenes, Roberto Díaz and Andrés Díaz, the trio performs regularly in recital and at festivals around the world. In 1993 at the invitation of Isaac Stern, the trio performed at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall to celebrate the next one hundred years of music-making at Carnegie Hall.
Other appearances include performances in Miami, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Boston, El Paso, Austin and Lincoln Center in New York, as well as the Mostly Mozart Festival at Kennedy Center, Newport Festival, St. Augustine Festival, Cape and Islands Chamber Music Festival, Festival de San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, St. Cyprien International Festival of the Arts on France, the Kuhmo Festival in Finland and an extensive tour of Chile. Their debut tours of Canada, in collaboration with Canadian pianist Angela Cheng and guitarist Norbert Kraft, were a resounding success. For several years, the Díaz Trio was the trio in residence at the Brevard Music Center.
Masters of Chamber Music
The Díaz Trio is comprised of some of the world’s best string musicians. Roberto Díaz is a Chilean-American violist, and the president/director of the Curtis Institute of Music. He is the violist in the Díaz Trio, which includes his brother Andrés Díaz, a cellist, and violinist Andrés Cárdenes, former concertmaster of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. As a former principal viola of the Philadelphia Orchestra and a teacher of viola at Curtis, Roberto Díaz has made a significant impact on American musical life and continues to do so in his dual roles as performer and educator.
