The Bulgarian-German pianist Asen Tanchev and the Latvian-German violinist Dainis Medjaniks had performed successfully together for several years before they founded the Soleri Trio in 2017. After a prolonged search, they were joined by the cellist Moritz Weigert from Leipzig. Since winter semester 2020 they have been studying with prof.
Dirk Mommertz (Fauré Quartet) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, before that they studied with prof. Oliver Wille (Kuss Quartet) and prof. Markus Becker at the University of Music, Drama and Media Hannover. They received further musical impulses, among others by Eberhard Feltz, Günther Pichler, Ébène Quartet, Peter Buck, Priya Mitchell, Troels Svane and Stefan Heinemeyer.
At the 64th International Jeunesses Musicales Chamber Music Campus in Weikersheim, they were awarded the special prize as one of the most promising young ensembles of 2019. The trio is united by the great desire to be able to reflect their different cultures and stories in music.
They are always looking for new ways and means of expression without neglecting the musical context for all their enthusiasm, passion and spontaneity.
