Sōra : « Bird singing while taking off». 

 

The Trio Sōra is now considered as an ensemble with one of the rarest artistic identity of its generation. Through performances as subtle as inventive, and nourished by the diversity of cultural heritage of every member, these three passionate musicians give a unique interpretation of chamber music, with strength and sensitivity. 

Already invited on some of the greatest international stages, such as the Philharmonie de Paris, the Auditorium du Louvre, or London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Center,  or else as part of distinguished festivals such as La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Festival International d’Art Lyrique d’Aix en Provence as well as the Verbier Festival, the Trio Sōra distinguishes itself with its curiosity and high artistic aims. 

Honoured by several awards gained in French and international competitions (lately at the Parkhouse Award), appointed Lauréat HSBC 2017 at the Festival d’Aix, and laureate of the Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy 2018, the three women keep entertaining and surprising. 

Always concerned to enrich their artistic path, the musicians of the trio Sōra regularly work with masters such as Mathieu Herzog, Menahem Pressler, the Quatuor Ebene and the Quatuor Artemis at Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.

The Trio Sōra thanks the Fondation Singer-Polignac, Proquartet-CEMC, Le Dimore Del Quartetto,  the Fondation Safran pour la Musique, the ADAMI, the Fondation Meyer, the Fondation Baillet-Latour of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel for their kind support. The violinist Magdalena Geka plays a Giuseppe Garneri 1697 violin and the cellist Angèle Legasa, a Julius-Caesare Gigli 1767 cello, instruments kindly lent by the Fondation Boubo-Music (Switzerland).
