Trio Rigamonti was born out of the desire of the three siblings Miriam, Mariella and Emanuele to dedicate their lives to chamber music, moved by a desire to share their sensibilities and a complicity that goes beyond the musical sphere.
In 2022, the trio won second prize (with first prize not awarded) at the prestigious Ysaye International Music Competition in Liège, performing at the Main Hall of the Université and the marvellous Salle Philharmonique. and was one of the winning ensembles at the A. Rubinstein International Chamber Music Competition in Düsseldorf.
Among their most recent achievements are the Best Italian Ensemble Award in the first edition of the International Chamber Music Prize Filippo Nicosia in Faenza, the victory in the International Chamber Music Competition Carlo Maria Giulini 2021 in Bolzano and the 14th International Chamber Music Competition Cameristi dell’Alpe Adria in Udine. The trio was also named Ensemble of the Year 2020-21 within the Le Dimore del Quartetto circuit, receiving a scholarship from Fondazione Morosini in Milan, and was awarded the Premio Giovani Eccellenze 2022 by the Universum International Academy Switzerland.
For over nine years Trio Rigamonti has been performing regularly for prestigious festivals and associations, including Sagra Musicale Umbra and Amici della Musica di Perugia, Società dei Concerti di Trieste, Viotti Festival di Vercelli, Società dei Concerti di Parma, Festival della Piana del Cavaliere, Chamber Music Festival of Rovinj (Croatia), Chamber Music Festival of Lugano, Società Umanitaria of Milan, Amici della Musica of Padua, Festival Carniarmonie, Autunno Musicale of Caserta, Musica al Tempio of Milan (performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto), at Teatro Sociale of Como, Conservatorio C.

Boito in Parma, under the guidance of Trio di Parma and P. Maurizzi. In 2020 he was admitted to Quartetto di Cremona’s class at the Stauffer Center for Strings, where he also had the privilege of performing for A. Brendel playing Schubert’s Trio op. 100.
