LONDON BRIDGE TRIO
"The London Bridge Trio aren't afraid to tell it like it is... playing that is as compelling as it is rapt." Gramophone
The London Bridge Trio is one of Britain’s most exciting and brilliant chamber groups, whose primary focus is driven by the piano trio repertoire. Originally formed in 2002 as the London Bridge Ensemble, they continue to prioritise strong, composer-led programmes and collaborate with regular guest artists.
"The poetry, flexibility and ardour displayed by these gifted players held me captive from
first note to last." Gramophone
"Rendered with a bubbling brilliance... heart-touchingly eloquent." The Sunday Times
WINCHESTER CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL
The thriving Winchester Chamber Music Festival was founded by Kate and Dan in 2008 and continues to attract sell-out audiences, supported by a loyal Friends and Patrons network, an esteemed board of trustees and generous volunteers. It takes place each year during the first weekend of May - Thursday to Sunday - and uses various venues around the centre including the Theatre Royal, Discovery Centre, a selection of exquisite churches and the private chapel of Winchester College.
The London Bridge Trio invite special guest artists each year to perform a wide variety of mixed ensembles as well as featuring their own trio repertoire. Guests have included the Heath, Castalian, Navarra and Sacconi string quartets and the Gould Piano Trio as well as individual guests such as Esther Hoppe, Richard Lester, Maia Cabeza and Timothy Ridout. In addition to several concerts from morning til late night, the festival offers talks and discussions, an open rehearsal and a masterclass.
