Trio Kanon, (the name refers to the Canone but simultaneously is coming from the union of two Japanese words: “Ka” – “Flower” and “On”– “Music” so literally “Flourishing Music”) arise in summer 2012 from the friendship between three musicians with the same purpose to make music together. With this premise in 2012 Lena, Alessandro and Diego started their chamber music experience building their repertoire under the guide of the Trio di Parma (Alberto Miodini, Ivan Rabaglia, Enrico Bronzi) at the International Chamber Music Academy in Duino, founded by the Trio di Trieste in 1989. 


The three musicians had previously studied individually with outstanding teachers as Maria Grazia BellocchioSalvatore Accardo and Rocco Filippini in important institutions such as the Stauffer Academy in Cremona and the Santa Cecilia International Academy in Rome



In 2014 the Trio attended the masterclasses with Alexander Lonquich at “Accademia Chigiana” in Siena, with Robert Cohen at Snape Maltings (Uk), with Hatto Beyerle, Miguel Da Silva and Annette von Hehn (Atos Trio) at Trondheim Chamber Music Academy 2014 (Norway), with Oliver Wille at the Centre Européen de Musique de Chambre ProQuartet of Paris and at the Internationale Konzertarbeitswochen in Goslar (Germany) and with Avedis Kouyomdijian, Johannes Meissl, Anita Mitterer, Peter Nagy, the Talich Quartet at ISA2015 summer academy in Semmering and Reichenau an der Rax (Vienna) where the trio was rewarded as Best ensemble, winning the “Chamber Music Award” sponsored by the Haydn Institute and by the “University of music” of Vienna.  


Trio Kanon gained international credibility by winning many prizes, including the 1st Prize, the Audience Prize and 2 Special Prizes at the International Chamber Music Competition of Pinerolo & Torino 2018 (member of the World Federation of International Music Competition). The award hadn’t been won by an Italian group for 17 years.


The Trio played in many important venues, such as Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the Sala Casella and the Cappella Paolina of the Quirinale Palace in Rome, the Teatro Verdi in Trieste, the Sala dei Notari in Perugia, the Teatro Vittoria in Turin, Palazzo Ducale and Palazzo Te in Mantua for the Mantova Chamber Music Festival; they also performed in England, Croatia, Austria, China and the USA, always meeting unanimous success with audiences and critics. 


In 2015, the ensemble was invited as resident group at the Snape Maltings’ famous Aldeburgh Music Festival, where they performed twice at the Jubilee Hall.

In 2019 Trio Kanon went on tour in Japan, holding concerts at the Music Salon Amadeus in Kobe, the Aqua Cultural Center in Toyonaka where they played Beethoven Triple Concert and at the Phoenix Hall in Osaka.


In 2019 they also had the privilege to work with Alfred Brendel, attending a masterclass - promoted by Associazione Mozart Italia in Modica - about Schubert repertoire.


They recently recorded for prestigious review “Amadeus” and “Movimento Classical” label music by L. v. Beethoven.
