Parkhouse Award presents Trio Sora

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Trio Sōra play piano trios by Beethoven and Schubert plus the UK premiere of Camille Pépin’s The Road Not Taken.

Trio Sōra won the 2017 Parkhouse Award by the unanimous decision of the jury. Based in Paris and influenced by their diversity of heritage – France, Latvia, Italy and Basque – the programme for their first concert in London for the Parkhouse Award was described as 'mesmerising' by a member of the audience and other superlatives came thick and fast.

Their second performance as winners promises nothing less. In between glorious piano trios by Beethoven (Ghost) and Schubert No.2 Op.100 they play The Road Not Taken by Camille Pépin (1990) written in 2018 in a UK premiere.

The Sora is a native American bird that sings while spreading its wings and like that bird the members of Trio Sōra have vivaciously launched into full flight. Their journey so far has taken them to festivals and concert halls across Europe and America.

The trio is a resident ensemble of the Singer-Polignac Foundation in Paris and Pro-Quartet CEMC; they are also a European Chamber Music Academy ensemble. Trio Sōra benefits from the guidance of Mathieu Herzog, as well as the ARtemis Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and Claire Desert at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris.

Violinist Magdalena Geka plays a 1737 Camillus Camilli violin generously loaned by the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.
