Switzerland - ProQuartet Resident


Natasha Roque Alsina, piano
Stanislas Gosset, violin
Clément Dami, cello

The Trio Ernest was founded in 2019 in Geneva and plays in concerts throughout Europe. They are Artists in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, studying with Miguel da Silva, Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden and the Artemis Quartet and they have been given awards in Paris (FNAPEC European Competition), Zürich (Orpheus Competition) and in the Académie Internationale Maurice Ravel.

The three musicians explore with passion and creativity the Piano Trio Repertoire in concert series such as Swiss Chamber Music Festival, Schubertiades de Sion, Concerts du Méjan, and in original projects that they develop themselves. In this context, they collaborate with artists such as Noémie Bialobroda, (Aviv Quartet), Ophélie Gaillard, Patrick Genet (Quatuor Sine Nomine), Stephan MacLeod, Miguel da Silva, Manuel Vioque-Judde, Orchestre Juventutti and the composer Carlos Roque Alsina, whose piece Quasi Figurativo is created in October 2020.
During the Summer 2020, the Trio imagined a Live Streaming concert series called “Ernest part en Live” as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic. This initiative was then relayed by the Swiss television RTS - Espace 2: “Young formation on the rise [...] the Trio Ernest [plays] against bad fortune good concerts.”

The three musicians are used to play in prestigious festivals : Verbier Festival, Festival de La Roque d’Anthéron, Festival de l’Orangerie de Sceaux, Les Musicales de Colmar, Centre de Musique de Chambre de Paris, Festival Jeunes Talents, Festival Ravel, Les Musicales de Wesserling, Festival Sine Nomine, Festival Gaia, Piano en Saintonge. They have played in halls such as la Grande Salle de la Philharmonie de Paris, the big hall of the KKL in Lucerne, the Paul Klee Zentrum in Bern, the Salle Cortot in Paris.
They have been heard on the radio, on France Musique, Espace 2 or the BBC 3.

The Trio Ernest works regularly with Patrick Jüdt in Bern. It has also benefited from the precious advice of the Trio Wanderer and Claire Desert at the Academie Ravel and participate in the ProQuartet training programme.
The Trio has been selected to join Le Dimore del Quartetto and becomes a ProQuartet Resident in October 2020.
