The Phoenix Piano Trio was formed in 2010 and has quickly established itself as one of today’s leading ensembles.
Their highly successful debut season in 2011 included over twenty concerts across the UK as part of their “Beyond Beethoven” cycle, performing all of Beethoven’s works for Piano Trio. They have become regular guests at London’s Wigmore Hall and their first CD – a live recording of Beethoven’s works including the “Archduke” trio and the trio in E flat, Op. 70 no. 2. – was launched at Wigmore in 2012; described in Strings Magazine as having ‘a musical narrative of tremendous, involving depth’. They are also advocates of new music, so far having commissioned new works by five British composers, including Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Philip Venables and Edwin Roxburgh. Recent highlights have included performances at the Happy Days Festival in Eniskillen, the Leicester International Music Festival, and the London Chamber Music Society at Kings Place.
