Firebird is delighted to launch the first of its new Firebird Chamber Platform Concerts on Tuesday 21 March with Trio de Beauvoir…
The aim of this new chamber music initiative is to give a much needed opportunity for smaller scale ensembles to perform under the Firebird banner. This opening concert will contain some of the best loved repertoire for the Piano Trio with a programme representing a range of composers from Beethoven to Dvořák.
Cellist Charlotte Kaelin is no stranger to Firebird as she has played principal cello with us for several years. We are delighted to be able to develop that link through this prize-winning ensemble in which she is joined by violinist Enyuan Khong and pianist Élisabeth Pion.
The Trio recently won 2nd prize in the Virtuoso & Bel Canto Chamber Music Competition in Italy. Finalists of the St-Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Competition, they participated in scholarships in festivals across Europe, including Jeunesses Musicales in Germany and Musique à Flaine. The Trio regularly performs in the UK including engagements as part of the Leeds International Concert Season and in St-Martin-in-the-Fields.
They have most recently entered a mentorship with Christoph Richter at Chamber Studio in King’s Place and had a chamber music residency at the Britten Pears Young Artists’ Programme for 2021/22.
