Violinist, Peter Sirotin, and pianist, Ya-Ting Chang, began their artistic collaboration at Peabody Conservatory in 1997, where they co-founded the Mendelssohn Piano Trio, ensemble-in-residence at the Embassy Series in Washington, DC and at Messiah College in Grantham, PA. The couple has toured North America, Europe and Asia both as soloists and chamber musicians. Critics have described their performances as “impressive”, "stylistically refined" and "electrifying." Their multiple recordings have received critical acclaim and can be heard on many major classical radio stations in the U.S. including NPR’s Performance Today. They are currently in the process of recording the complete Haydn piano trios for Centaur Records. Both Sirotin and Chang have given masterclasses in the U.S. and abroad and have also served as adjudicators in competitions. In 2006 they co-founded Chamber Music in Grantham, a summer program for young performers and composers.
