The Leonore Piano Trio brings together three internationally acclaimed artists whose piano trio performances under the umbrella of Ensemble 360 were met with such enthusiastic responses that they decided to form a piano trio in its own right.
The Leonore Trio has already given a concert series in Italy, followed by a three- week tour of New Zealand, where their concert in Hamilton was broadcast on Radio New Zealand. The Trio also played to and coached a group of young musicians as part of the Sistema Aotearoa programme, gave a concert in the New Zealand Parliament, and were adjudicators of the Royal Over-seas League New Zealand Chamber Music Competition.
They gave the first performance of "Holkam Beach", a piece written for and dedicated to the trio by Simon Rowland-Jones and have been asked by the eminent composer, David Matthews to record his three Piano Trios. The Trio's debut recording for Hyperion records of music by Arensky and Rachmaninov is due for release early next year.
