You have referred to the coming together of the Trio Con Brio Copenhagen as
the bringing together of “two pairs”. Meaning, of course, the sisters, Soo Kyung
Hong (cello) and Soo Jin Hong (violin); and then the husband and wife pair of
yourself with Soo Kyung. How did that evolve?
Of course, the sisters had played together since childhood, then of course a
husband and wife relationship is special in its own way, and so we all had these
dynamics of unique understandings.
And are you still led by that idea, of the two pairs together?
Ideas evolve, and now, we discovered that there is another pairing
that between the trio as an entity and the audience.
So do you find that you alter your playing depending on the audience?
They have an effect, but we now have a clear identity within ourselves, and I think
it’s important for the audience when they come to know that they’re getting our way of
making music rather than something we are simply going to adjust depending on how
the audience feels to us. That way, they are coming to hear the trio’s interpretation,
nobody else’s, and an interpretation that we have built up to and that is part of this
journey we are on together.
