“The Trio Sōra is a very fine ensemble indeed. Their understanding of the composition, their listening of each-other, their sensitive and lively music-making — all these have given me joy and pleasure” said Sir András Schiff.
Founded in Paris in 2015, the Trio Sōra is a feminine and charismatic ensemble, that displays one of the most appealing artistic identity of its generation. Already invited to perform in prestigious venues — London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, Schwerin’s Konzertverein, Brussels’ Centre for Fine Arts, Verbier Festival, Philharmonie de Paris, Auditorium du Louvre, Opéra de Lille, Opéra de Toulon, Folle Journée de Nantes, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence… —, the musicians distinguish themselves by the excellence, the clarity and the generosity of their interpretations.
For several years, the Trio Sōra has been refining its technique with Mathieu Herzog, Menahem Pressler, the Danel Quartet, the Ebène Quartet and with the Artemis Quartet 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 (2017), Parkhouse Award (2017), Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy (2018) —, these young women never cease to amaze and inspire an ever greater audience.
The Trio Sōra 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 Baillet-Latour Foundation of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, the Gunther Caspar Foundation, the Meyer Foundation and by the Fondation Safran pour la Musique. Clémence de Forceville plays a violin Giovanni Battista Guadagnini (1777) and Angèle Legasa, a cello Giulio Cesare Gigli (1767), instruments generously loaned by the Boubo-Music Foundation.
