The members of the Van Baerle Trio met as students at the Amsterdam Conservatory. From the beginning they were coached by Dmitri Ferschtman, and took part in lessons and master classes with – amongst others – Willem Brons, Ana Chumachenco, Mark Lubotsky and the Parkanyi Quartet. Most crucial for the development of the trio was meeting Menahem Pressler in 2008.

The Van Baerle Trio has won many prizes at national and international competitions – in April 2011 the Trio was awarded the First Prize, the audience prize and 2 special prizes at the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition; one month later the Trio won the Vriendenkrans Competition, where they were awarded both the Radio 4 “Talent of the Year” Award and the audience prize. The Trio has also received the prestigious Dutch Kersjes Prize 2012.

The Trio is a regular guest on Dutch radio and television, and has participated in international festivals in the Netherlands and abroad. In 2012, the Van Baerle Trio was guest at France Musique’s  “Génération… Jeunes Interprètes” and recently the Trio was invited for a residency in Aldeburgh.

The Trio’s debut CD with piano trios by Saint-Saëns, Loevendie and Ravel was released in April 2012 on the label Etcetera Records.
