The Ducasse Trio are a passionate and vibrant young ensemble. Formed in 2011, the trio consists of award winning musicians from France, Ireland and the UK who began working together after they met as students at the Paris Conservatoire and Southbank Sinfonia. Winners of the 2014 Worshipful Company of Musicians / Concordia Award, the trio will make their Wigmore Hall debut in 2015 and are engaged to perform at many other leading venues in the UK including Cadogan Hall, Abbotsholme Arts Society and City Music Society at Bishopsgate Institute.
The trio embarked on their first national tour of Ireland in August 2014, culminating in their debut at the National Concert Hall, Dublin. A pro-active trio, they have commissioned two pieces from Christian Dachez and Nicolas Baci. The premier of Dachez’s “Primetime” was given at the Geneva Music Festival 2013, and it shall receive its premier in Paris in 2015. Appearances at prestigious chamber music courses include Academie Musicale de Villecroze, France and Tibor Varga Switzerland, receiving coaching from Paul Meyer and Gilbert Audin, as well as numerous concerts. Other notable performances include the Anghiari Festival in Italy, Waterloo Festival in London, Royal Festival Hall and throughout the UK.
The trio are passionate about presenting the many neglected works for this ensemble to new audiences both at home and abroad.
