Founded in 1988 and celebrated for its finesse, infectious exuberance, tonal allure, and its irresistible panache, the Vienna Piano has long been hailed as one of the "world's leading ensembles of piano, violin and cello" (The Washington Post). As of September 2015, that reputation is being kept alive with David McCarroll as its new violinist who brings to this ensemble an already-rich relationship with the chamber music repertoire.

The Vienna Piano Trio today performs in the major concert halls worldwide. In North America, the group has appeared, among others, in New York City (Lincoln Center, Weil Recital Hall, Frick Collection) Washington (Kennedy Center, National Gallery, Library of Congress), in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Mexico City, and the Caribbean.

In addition, the trio has been invited to many of the leading music festivals, including the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Wiener Festwochen, Salzburg Mozartwoche, Grafenegg, Carinthischer Sommer, Casals Festival Prades, Rheingau, Festival of Flanders, Aix-en-Provence, Schleswig-Holstein, Kuhmo and Bratislava Music Festivals, Princeton Summer, Caramoor, Chautauqua, and to the Canadian festivals of Ottawa International Chamber, Toronto Summer Music, Ottawa Music and Beyond, Lanaudiere, Domaine Forget, Orford, Quebec City International, the Casals Festival in San Juan, the Morelia and Santa Lucia Festivals in Mexico.

For a number of years, the ensemble performed in Vienna at the Wiener Musikverein within the "Jeunesse Musicale" series; in November 2016 it celebrated the 10th anniversary of its concert series at the Konzerthaus' Mozartsaal. It was ensemble-in-residence at Wigmore Hall for the 2011/12 season and at the BBC series at St. Luke's in 12/13, and will return to Wigmore Hall through 2017. As of the 15/16 season, the trio has also been serving as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Southhampton's Turner Sims Hall.

The Trio performed Beethoven's Triple Concerto with orchestras such as the Orchestre Philharmonique Belgique, the English Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre Metropolitain de Montreal, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, and the Capella Istropolitana, among others. In 2016 the trio performed the work at the Grafenegg Festival with the Tonkuenstler Orchester under Simone Young, and under Christoph Poppen at the Festival International de Musica Marvao in Portugal.

Concerts of the ensemble have been repeatedly broadcast on ORF, BBC3, WNYC, NPR, WQXR stations, and the trio has appeared live on WGBH Boston and St. Paul Sunday and radio stations world-wide.

After first recording for Naxos and Nimbus, the ensemble has been recording for the German MDG label since 2003. BBC Music Magazine declared its Vols I and II of Schubert Benchmark Recordings. Its Dvorak Vols I and II, were met with critical acclaim as well; a recording of the Steuermann arrangement of Schoenberg's Verklaerte Nacht won among others the Pizzicato's Supersonic Award. A recording of Tchaikovsky and Smetana, was named to the Gramophone Editor's Choice List for February 2009. A Haydn recording, released in May 2009, was given 5 stars by BBC Music Magazine and was awarded the Echo Klassik Prize 2010. A recording of a live concert with works by Beethoven, Schumann and Ravel was released in 2011, recordings of Saint Saens and all-Beethoven CD in 2012. Brahms Volume I was released in the fall of 2015 and has been repeatedly named recording Choice of the Month - even Choice of the Year by Fanfare;Brahms II will be released in the spring of 2017 to be followed by the release of a recording of von Herzogenberg piano trios.

Besides its concert activities, the ensemble has been giving master classes at London's Wigmore Hall and Royal College of Music, at Sydney's Conservatory of Music, at the University of Wellington as well as in Finland, France, Canada, Mexico, and throughout the USA.

The trio won numerous prizes at international competitions and had among its most important mentors Isaac Stern, Ralph Kirshbaum, Joseph Kalichstein as well as members of the Trio di Trieste, the Beaux Arts Trio, and of the La Salle and Guarneri Quartets.
