Huberman Trio (String Trio)

Founded: 2013 - Poland/Hungary

This Huberman Trio was founded in 2013, and it is hardly surprising that they named it after a celebrated musician. Bronislaw Huberman (1882-1947) came from a Polish-Jewish family and, performing with his violin in public at the age of seven, was acknowledged as a child prodigy. He counted as one of the most prominent violinists of the 20th century.
