Ever since they were introduced in 1999 at the inauguration of L’Auditori de Barcelona, the Kandinsky Trio has become consolidated as a group whose main focus is chamber music: playing with the music and the musical complicity created between the musicians. Its members, Corrado Bolsi (violin), Amparo Lacruz (cello) and Emili Brugalla (piano) aim to spread romantic literature for trios with piano, as well as enrich it with their determined commitment to modern composers. Many contemporary composers have dedicated music to them.
Recognized characteristics of TK are their extremely communicative style, and their intensity and expressive nature on stage, qualities which have been widely recognized both by the public and specialized critics.
Recent activities include performances in the Auditori Nacional de Madrid, L’Auditori de Barcelona, the Palau de Música Catalana, the Festival de Granada, the International Festival of Torroella de Montgrí, the Fundación Juan March, Caixaforum of Barcelona, the Universidad Menéndez Pelayo of Santander, the Festival Casals in Puerto Rico, Kunsthalle in Oslo, Munetsugu Center in Japan, Festival “A Tempo” in Caracas, Salle Moliére in Lyon, and in numerous other Spanish Philarmonic Orchestra programmes (Badajoz, Dènia, Córdoba, Zamora, Gijón, La Coruña, Pontevedra, Málaga y Vitoria, amongst others).
The Kandinsky was for five years the trio in residence at the Auditori Pau Casals in El Vendrell, and has travelled to Portugal, France, England, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, North America and Japan.
Amongst their recordings you can find the cd 20th century Catalan trios, with music from Cassadó, Montsalvatge, Granados y Gerhard for the record company Anacrusi; and the cds Schoenberg and Barcelona with music from Schoemberg, Gerhard and Homs, and the monographic Joan Guinjoan –Best Chamber Music Album prize from CD Compact magazine–, edited by the label Columna Mùsica.
Their concerts have been broadcast on Mezzo, Radio France, Radio Nacional de España, Catalunya Música and Canal 33.

They have given classes in the musical interpretation courses Isaac Albéniz in Camprodòn and Cervera, lectures at the University Las Rosas in Morelia (Mexico), at the Conservatorio Superior in Lima (Peru) and at the Conservatorio Superior in the Balearic Islands (Spain).
The Kandinsky Trio has received support from the Ministerio de Cultura de España, the Consell Nacional de la Cultura i las Arts de la Generalitat de Catalunya and from the Institut Ramon Llull.
