Since its formation in 2006, the Eblana String Trio has given countless performances throughout the UK and beyond, winning praise from audiences and critics alike for their powerful interpretations of this often-neglected repertoire.
Recent concert highlights include Wigmore Hall, St John’s Smith Square, and the Purcell Room, as well as the Bridgewater Hall and Symphony Hall Birmingham. The trio has also made appearances at major festivals such as Salisbury, Lake District Summer Music, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Musikfest Goslar. Their many performances at the annual RNCM Chamber Music Festivals include a critically acclaimed performance of the Schoenberg String Trio – “...the late, mercurial, if elliptical, String Trio, a sort of 12-tone divertimento, was brilliantly undertaken by the Eblana String Trio.” Paul Driver – Sunday Times. The trio has also been invited to play on BBC Radio 3 on several occasions.
City Music Foundation Artists, the trio are passionate about championing new repertoire and have worked closely with many of the leading British composers on their works. These include David Matthews, Hugh Wood, Robin Holloway and James Francis Brown. They have also given the world premieres of works written for them by Joel Rust, Grace-Evangeline Mason and Rhiannon Randle.
In addition to their studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, the trio attended the International Musicians’ Seminar in Prussia Cove, as well as sessions of the European Chamber Music Academy. From 2013 until 2015 they held a Junior Fellowship in chamber music at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and now continue their association as visiting tutors in Chamber Music.
