About Erato Piano Trio

Recently selected by Making Music's Concert Promoters' Network as featured artists for 2012/13, the Erato Piano Trio is rapidly establishing a reputation as one of the UK’s leading young ensembles, praised for their virtuosity, outstanding musicianship and stylistic versatility alike.

As first prize winners of the Anglo-Czech Trust Competition they currently pursue a busy schedule of recitals around the UK and the European mainland. Their repertoire extends from the classical works of Haydn, Hummel and Mozart over the romantic masterpieces to 20th century music by Schnittke, Avner Dorman, Cecilia McDowall, Garrett Shatzer, and Mark-Anthony Turnage. Their interpretation of the Piano Trio by Alfred Schnittke was received enthusiastically by audiences and critics alike and led to an invitation by Professor Alexander Ivashkin, Schnittke’s close friend and biographer, to perform the work at the Centre for Russian Music in London.

Formed at the Royal College of Music in 2005, the Erato Piano Trio made an immediate impression and were soon invited to perform across the UK and abroad where, in the same season, they gave highly successful debut performances at the Martinu Hall in Prague as well as at Zurich’s famous Tonhalle, performing Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time alongside the distinguished Spanish clarinettist Joan Enric Lluna. They were selected onto the Concordia Foundation Young Artists Scheme in 2008 and subsequently performed a series of recitals at prestigious London venues including St. Martin in the Fields.

More recently they have performed at venues including Warwick Arts Centre, Cardiff National Gallery, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, St. James Piccadilly, The Forge, Queens Theatre Cambridge, as well as at the Lower Machen and Uckfield Festivals. The current season sees their South Bank debut at the Purcell Room in July, a performance at the Leamington Music Festival Weekend, as well as numerous recitals for music societies across the UK. Their strong commitment to contemporary music recently led them to launch a much acclaimed project with the composition faculty of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, as well as giving several UK and world premieres of pieces written for the Erato Piano Trio. Two of these, David Braid's Music for Dancers and his Sonata for Quartet (with clarinettist Peter Cigleris), have recently been released by Toccata Classics.

The three young musicians have benefited from the guidance of Salvatore Accardo, Professor John Barstow MBE, Leonid Gorokhov, Ani Schnarch and the Chilingirian Quartet. They were also selected to perform in masterclasses with Lewis Kaplan as well as with legedary cellist and Beaux Arts Trio founder Bernard Greenhouse. They are currently continuing their training at Chamber Studio King's Place with renowned artists such as Paul Watkins, Susan Tomes, Richard Ireland and Christoph Richter, kindly supported by Philip Carne.
