HETK Trio (hetk ‘moment’, ‘instant’ in Estonian) is inspired by and pays tribute to the world famous Het Trio (Harrie Starreveld – flute, Harry Sparnaay – bass clarinet, René Eckhardt – piano) that was active in 1982–2006, performed all over the world and premièred over 180 new pieces. Fie Schouten (bass clarinet) and Tarmo Johannes (flute) studied respectively with Harry Sparnaay and Harrie Starreveld. HETK Trio tries partly to pass on the best pieces of their vast heritage but it is also interested in finding and commissioning new pieces to extend the repertoire of the peculiar trio.
