Trio ELF in Rio de Janiero

Quotes from TRIO ELF's 2018 Australian tour:

„Germany’s Trio ELF were all high-spirits and mad-cap energy, melding classical piano trio with electronics in the manner of former Swedish unit the Esbjörn Svensson Trio (or e.s.t.). The trio’s music plumbed the soft-loud template pioneered by Nirvana and the grunge movement, and it came as no surprise that their deconstructed makeover of the Blink-182 song ‘Down’ proved an audience hit.“ Des Cowley  „The Australian Book Review“

Germany’s Trio ELF was an instant hit with audiences at their Saturday evening concert in WPAC Theatre and on Sunday in the newly styled St Pat’s Hall with tables and a bar. Walter Lang on piano, Peter Cudek on acoustic bass and Gerwin Eisenhauer on drums added a little electronic wizardry and lots of humour to their melodically and rhythmically appealing compositions. Their approach made excellent use of sudden dramatic dynamic variations, beginning each piece with a simple tune repeated, adding effects, pumping up the volume and intensity via bass and expansive work from Eisenhauer, before returning to the fluid simplicity of the piano notes. Their cover of punk band Blink 182’s Down was a favourite.


Germany’s Trio Elf were unashamedly extrovert, their music a fascinating blend of drum ‘n’ bass rhythms, lyrical melodies, startling dynamic shifts and electronic effects. The remarkable Gerwin Eisenhauer has been described as a drum machine come to life, but machines don’t radiate joy like Eisenhauer and his colleagues Walter Lang and Peter Cudek , building delicate pin pricks of sound into thumping pop euphoria in the blink of an eye.
