Described by Gramophone as, ‘spot-on in interpretative instinct’, the Aquinas Piano Trio has established itself over the last five years as one of Britain’s most sought-after chamber groups. Following their Wigmore Hall debut in December 2015, Musical Opinion commented, ‘This sold out concert hall was in awe, ecstatic with joy at the final cadence.’ Their growing list of recordings includes the Saint-Saens Trios, released on Guild in 2015, and their CD of Mendelssohn Trios was Strad Magazine’s Choice of the Month in May 2015: ‘The Aquinas Trio rejoices in these cherishable scores with a symphonic sweep and an insatiable forward momentum … This is an enormously impressive coupling.’.
Recent and forthcoming recitals include a Schumann concert series at Kings Place, London, the Little Missenden Festival, the Chipping Campden International Music Festival and four concerts in Mallorca next May. Their continuing support of contemporary music sees premieres of new works by Thomas Hyde and Rob Keeley during the 2016/17 season. They will return to the Wigmore Hall in 2018.
