The Eblana String Trio

Feb 14, 2018

Formed in 2006, the Eblana String Trio consists of three committed chamber musician, intent on performing the often neglected string trio repertoire. During their time at the Royal Northern College of Music the trio won all the major chamber music prizes, notably winning the 2010 RNCM chamber music award and audience prize for their performance of Britten’s Phantasy Quartet, together with oboist David Curington. The Trio are regular visitors to concert series and festivals throughout the UK and beyond and are frequent collaborators with other instrumentalists and composers.

The Trio are current Park Lane Group Artists and recently performed works by Robin Holloway, Joel Rust (world premiere) and Schoenberg to critical acclaim at St John’s Smith Square. In the 2016-17 season the trio are looking forward to debut performances at both the Wigmore Hall for the Park Lane Group and at the Bridgewater Hall for the Manchester Midday Concerts.

They are fortunate to have received coaching from many eminent chamber musicians such as Gabor Takacs-Nagy, Hugh Maguire, Robin Ireland and Petr Prause, and have also attended the International Musicians’ Seminar at Prussia Cove studying with David Waterman. The trio have also been invited on a number of occasions to participate in the European Chamber Music Academy, most recently studying with Christoph Richter, Peter Cropper and Hatto Beyerle.
