The three musicians of the Morgenstern Trio (violinist Stefan Hempel, pianist Catherine Klipfel and cellist Emanuel Wehse) joined forces in 2005 at the Folkwang Academy in Essen. In 2007, after only two years of intensive collaboration, the Trio was awarded several important prizes: First Prize at the International Joseph Haydn Competition in Vienna, Second Prize at the Fifth Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, and Second Prize and the Audience Prize at the prestigious ARD Competition in Munich. The previous year it had already won a sought-after scholarship at the German Music Competition, and in 2008 and 2009, the Trio was Ensemble in Residence at the Folkwang Academy. The Morgenstern Trio has already made a name for itself in concert halls across Germany, particularly through the National Young Artists Concert Selection and Best of NRW concert series. The ensemble has been invited to the Pablo Casals Festival in Prades, France, the Mecklenburg‐Vorpommern Festival, the Heidelberg Spring Festival, the West German Radio Music Festival and the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Finland.
