The Hague String Trio was founded in The Hague in 2006. Its three members had previously been studying and working in various countries, including Mexico, Russia, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands. The trio focuses on the extensive string trio repertoire. In addition to performing throughout the Netherlands, they give regular concerts in England and Germany. In 2019 they released the CD After the Darkness, featuring music by Jewish composers who were interned in the Terezín ghetto.

Aside from works by Czech composers, such as Hans Krása (1899–1944) and Gideon Klein (1919–1945), the CD also contains the world premiere recording of a piece by the Dutch composer Dick Kattenburg (1919–1944), who was briefly incarcerated in the Terezín ghetto shortly before his death in Auschwitz. This recording has received an award from the Pizzicato magazine in Luxembourg, as well as many glowing reviews – e.g., from the BBC music magazine and from the Czech website Elegant Classics.
