Trio Sōra

Clémence de Forceville, Violine
Angèle Legasa, Violoncello
Pauline Chenais, Klavier

The Trio Sōra is considered as an ensemble with one of the rarest artistic identity of its generation. Through performances as subtle as inventive, and nourished by the different cultures of the member, these three passionate musicians give a unique interpretation of chamber music, with strength and sensitivity.

Already invited to some of the greatest international concert halls, such as the Philharmonie de Paris, the Auditorium du Louvre, or London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Center, or as part of distinguished festivals such as La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Festival International d’Art Lyrique d’Aix en Provence as well as the Verbier Festival, the Trio Sōra distinguishes itself with its curiosity and high artistic aims.

Honoured by several awards gained in French and international competitions (lately at the Parkhouse Award), appointed Lauréat HSBC 2017 at the Festival d’Aix, and laureate of the Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy 2018, the three women keep entertaining and surprising.

Always concerned to enrich their artistic development, the musicians of the Trio Sōra regularly work with masters such as Mathieu Herzog, Menahem Pressler, the Quatuor Ebene and the Quatuor Artemis at Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.

The Trio Sōra thanks the Fondation Singer-Polignac, Proquartet-CEMC, Le Dimore Del Quartetto,  the Fondation Safran pour la Musique, the ADAMI, the Fondation Meyer, the Fondation Baillet-Latour of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel for their kind support. The violinist Magdalena Geka plays a Giuseppe Garneri 1697 violin and the cellist Angèle Legasa, a Julius-Caesare Gigli 1767 cello, instruments kindly lent by the Fondation Boubo-Music (Switzerland).

Trio Zadig

Boris Borgolotto, violin
Marc Girard-Garcia, violincello
Ian Barber, piano

Awarded 11 international prizes, the Zadig Trio captivates audiences with its virtuosity, elegance and irresistible enthusiasm.

Friendship is at the core of the Zadig Trio’s strength and authenticity. Boris Borgolotto and Marc Girard Garcia are childhood friends who studied together at the Paris Conservatoire National de Musique and at the University of Music in Vienna. Upon their return to France, they crossed paths with Ian Barber, an American pianist from the renowned André Watts’ studio at the University of Indiana. The chemistry between them is immediately apparent. All three men are drawn by a strong desire to live out their passion as sincerely as possible and therefore decided to combine their desires together and found the Zadig Trio.

In just a few years, the Zadig Trio has become very successful and won numerous awards, including the First Prize of the “Fnapec Musiques d’Ensemble” – in the footsteps of renowned ensembles like the Ysaÿe Quartet, the Ebene Quartet and the Wanderer Trio – as well as the Second Prize of the Fischoff Competition (USA)

The trio has performed all over the world, from the USA to the Republic of Congo, and played in several prestigious concert halls such as Wigmore Hall, Shanghai City Theater and Paris’ Philharmonic and Salle Cortot. In parallel with this demanding schedule, the Zadig Trio has met with great artists who have contributed to the development of its musical expression, most notably Ivry Gitlis and Menahem Pressler.

Due to its auspicious beginning, the Zadig Trio has been invited to several broadcast shows: « Génération Jeunes Interprètes » by Gaëlle Le Gallic and « Le nouveau Rendez-Vous » by Laurent Goumarre on French Public Radio (France Musique & France Inter) as well as « Puisque vos avez du talent » by Laurent Graulus on Musiq’3 (RTBF) in Belgium.

The Zadig Trio is currently a resident of the Queen Elizabeth Music Chapel alongside the Artemis Quartet. It is also the first resident of ProQuartet and is supported by the Banque Populaire Foundation.

This season’s itinerary will highlight the trio’s commitment to openness and sharing. First the Zadig Trio will tackle the piano quartet repertoire with violists Krzysztof Chorzelski (Belcea Quartet) and Yung-Hsin Chang (Hermes Quartet). It will also participate in a project with the composer Benjamin Attahir, currently in residence at the Villa Medicis. Finally, because its members firmly believe in the universal power of classical music to break down barriers, the Zadig Trio will continue to engage in humanitarian and social projects, notably by playing for prison inmates and handicapped children.

From Haydn to contemporary composers, the Zadig Trio’s audacity and freshness gives youth and vitality to the trio repertoire. The depth and sincerity of its interpretations, as well as its vivid poetic sound, make it the creator of captivating performances.

Boris Borgolotto plays a 1750 violin by the famous Italian maker Carlo Antonio Testore. Marc Girard Garcia plays a Frank Ravatin cello, generously loaned to him by the El Pasito association.
