Trio Gaspard – Gallery Chamber Series #1

Note change in date… this event takes place on Sunday, January 19.

Making their US Tour debut, this piano trio (violin, cello & piano) is winners of three major international competitions since their inception in 2010. They won first prizes and special prizes at the International Joseph Joachim Chamber Music Competition in Weimar, the 5th International Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna and the 17th International Chamber Music Competition in Illzach, France. In 2012 they were awarded the ”Wiener Klassik” Preis der Stadt Baden in Austria. 

As well as exploring and championing the traditional piano trio repertoire, Trio Gaspard works regularly with contemporary composers and is keen to discover seldom-played masterpieces. In 2017, they performed a commission from Irish composer Gareth Williams at the Belfast Music Society, broadcast by the BBC.

Trio Gaspard, whose members hail from Germany, Greece and the UK, has given masterclasses at Kyung-Hee University Seoul and as resident piano trio of Shanghai Chamber Music Festival 2016, where they taught talented young ensembles and sat on the jury of China’s national chamber music competition. Trio Gaspard was awarded a fellowship from the Royal Northern College of Music, where they began teaching young ensembles from September 2017.

This performance will take place in Ramsey Auditorium
