Founded in Paris in 2015, the Sōra Trio is a feminine and charismatic ensemble, displaying one of the most appealing artistic identity of its generation.
Already invited to perform in prestigious venues — London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Center, Philharmoniede Paris, Auditorium du Louvre, Opéra de Lille, Folle Journée deNantes, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Verbier Festival… —, the musicians distinguish themselves by the excellence, the clarity and the generosity of their interpretations.
For several years, the Sōra Trio has been refining its technique with Mathieu Herzog, Menahem Pressler, DanelQuartet, Ebène Quartet and with the ArtemisQuartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels.
Winners of numerous awards in international competitions — HSBC Laureate of the Académie du Festival d’Aix-en-Provence (2018), Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy (2018), Parkhouse Award (2017) —, the three young women never cease to amaze and inspire an ever greater audience.
The Sōra Trio is in residence at the Fondation Singer-Polignac, at Le Dimore Del Quartetto and at ProQuartet-CEMC.
The ensemble is supported by the ADAMI, the Fondation Gunther Caspar, the Fondation Meyer, the Fondation Baillet-Latour of theQueen Elisabeth Music Chapel and by the Fondation Safran pour la Musique.
