NPR's Fred Child welcomes the Grammy-nominated Eroica Trio to Studio 4A. One of the world's top all-female chamber music trios, Eroica has been together since 1997.

The trio is pianist Erika Nickrenz, violinist Adela Peña and cellist Sara Sant Ambrogio. Their latest CD, released in October 2003, is titled Beethoven: Triple Concerto, Op. 56 — one of the most difficult trio works by the composer and a staple of the Eroica repertoire.
