Formed in 2021, Trio Ondata is the Silver Medal winner of the esteemed 2022 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, which also awarded them the inaugural Horszowski Prize. The trio also won the Yale School of Music Chamber Music Competition the same year.
Based in New Haven, Conn., the classical music ensemble composed of violinist Michael Ferri, cellist Miriam Liske-Doorandish, and pianist Anthony Ratinov, began playing together during their graduate studies at the Yale School of Music. With an inquisitive approach defined by advocacy, dialogue, and thoughtful programming, Trio Ondata strives to use artistry to engage with broader social and cultural contexts. It has always been drawn to the fringes of the ensemble repertoire, whether this means contemporary music by historically marginalized artists, obscure Haydn Trios performed with baroque bows, or underplayed works from composers who loom large in the canon facilitating a connection with a wide-ranging repertoire both old and new. Driven by a curiosity and desire to expand the norms of the classical music world and ensemble playing, Trio Ondata has two commission projects underway with the plan of premieres in 2024/25.
