Glenn Dicterow, Violinist
Karen Dreyfus,
Violist
Inbal Segev,
Cellist

"Dicterow's sweet, large, tightly focused tone gave the ensemble a rock-solid leading voice. But cellist Inbal Segev matched him with her thrillingly projected, vibrato-rich playing (not to mention a beautifully judged range of color and dynamics), while Karen Dreyfus's lean and throaty viola sound provided piquant contrast. It was in its finely woven blend of timbres and rapport, though, that the trio most deeply satisfied."
— The Washington Post

"personality, purpose and captivating energy"
— The Strad

The Amerigo Trio is one of the most recent major string trios to emerge in the world of chamber music. New York Philharmonic Concertmaster Glenn Dicterow formed the Amerigo with violist Karen Dreyfus and cellist Inbal Segev after their successful collaboration at the Bowdoin International Chamber Music Festival, hailed as a "virtuoso performance . . . an extraordinary interchange of musical thought" by the Maine Sunday Telegram. The Strad has praised Amerigo's “personality, purpose and captivating energy.”

In the short time since the group's founding in the summer of 2009, they have been invited to play at some of the most prestigious concert series in the United States, including Lorin Maazel's Castleton Festival in Virginia, The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, the Concord Chamber Music Society in Massachusetts, Tannery Pond Concerts in the Berkshires, the New York Chamber Music Festival at Symphony Space, and Dumbarton Concerts and the Phillips Collection Concert Series, both in Washington, DC.

Of the trio's recent performance in Washington DC, The Washington Post raved, "Dicterow's sweet, large, tightly focused tone gave the ensemble a rock-solid leading voice. But cellist Inbal Segev matched him with her thrillingly projected, vibrato-rich playing (not to mention a beautifully judged range of color and dynamics), while Karen Dreyfus's lean and throaty viola sound provided piquant contrast. It was in its finely woven blend of timbres and rapport, though, that the trio most deeply satisfied."

The Amerigo recently released its debut recording of serenades by Dohnányi on the Navona Records label.

The Amerigo Trio is named after Amerigo Vespucci, the Italian Explorer. The trio is committed to the exploration of the riches of the string trio repertoire, both new and old.
