Artist Description: 

The London-based Marsyas Trio, formed in 2009 by graduates of the Royal Academy of Music, is dedicated to music for flute, cello and piano from the Classical era onwards. Aiming to inspire a generation of new works for this genre, they are uncovering lesser-known repertoire and are proactive in commissioning new music.

The Trio has toured abroad in Europe and China, has performed at festivals throughout the UK including the Vale of Glamorgan and Three Choirs Festivals, at the Holywell Music Room (Oxford Chamber Music Society), in London for Spitalfields Music, St John’s Smith Square and Conway Hall, and in Switzerland at the Société de Musique Contemporaine Lausanne. This concert was broadcast on the Swiss Radio station RTS Espace 2. The Trio has also appeared live on BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’, Classic FM Bulgaria, and Bulgarian National Television. Their CD, A Triple Portrait (Meridian Records 2015) received airtime on European radio and reviews internationally, including Cambridge Music Journal Tempo, The Strad, and Australia’s Limelight Magazine. The ensemble was joined by pianist Zubin Kanga in January 2017. The Marsyas Trio performs in rural Wales as part of the Arts Council of Wales’ Night Out scheme and has received generous funding from the RVW Trust, PRS Foundation, Hinrichsen Foundation, Ambache Charitable Trust, Fidelio Charitable Trust, Britten-Pears Foundation and Arts Council England.

Marsyas Trio takes its name from Greek mythology – inspired by the bold, spirited passion of Marsyas, the celebrated pipe-playing satyr who dared challenge Apollo in a musical contest.
