Trio Sōra was founded in 2015 at the Paris Conservatoire where the three musicians studied.
Rare enough to be mentioned, the feeling was there instantly, since their first musical encounter. A musical love at first sight that brought the trio to take decisions with no delay: a schedule of rehearsals, competitions and meetings with professors.
This rigor and assiduity brought success very rapidly.
In April 2017, Trio Sōra won the Parkhouse Award in London. This will bring them to the most prestigious chamber music halls in the city, including the legendary Wigmore Hall.
Trio Sōra is also an HSBC-laureate of the Festival d’Aix Academy and won several international competitions with four first prizes and two special prizes in France and abroad.
Besides this list of well-deserved prizes and awards, what is really impressive, is the sound of this trio. After only two years of playing together, Trio Sōra offers a full, dense, warm and incredibly energizing sound. Long story short, they possess a maturity of the greatest ensembles in the world.
Within the trio, a single sound entity can be perceived. This musical cohesion consolidated with a fine articulation and phrasing. Be it classical Haydn or the passion of Brahms or Mendelssohn, the trio becomes one with the music they play.
The french ensemble is studying at the Queen Elizabeth Music Chapel with the Artemis Quartet, among others.
The Trio Sōra explains that the support of the InBev – Baillet-Latour Fondation enabled their studies at the Music Chapel, and it is thanks to another fondation, Singer-Polignac, that they can rehearse sufficiently in good conditions.
Without these rehearsal rooms that we can access for full days, – the cellist Angele Legasa explains, – we could have never reached the level that we have today. It is a very precious support!
Trio Sōra is a piano trio to watch on the european classical music scene.
Their commitment, their technical and musical qualities, their kindness and sense of humor, and the fact that they are so good about themselves make an exceptional trio, perfectly irresistible!
