Beethoven piano trios

The Phoenix Piano Trio, formed in 2010, is fast establishing itself as one of today’s leading ensembles. Their concerts to date have drawn universal high praise; the Oxford Times described the playing in their debut concert as “a common approach to the music… a well-rounded concert from three consummate musicians.” In 2011, after an extremely successful first season, they undertook a major series performing all of Beethoven’s piano trios in London, Oxford and various other venues, as well as commissioning five new works to be performed alongside them.

In 2012, the Trio will give its debut recital at London’s Wigmore Hall. They also release their first CD; a live recording from the “Beyond Beethoven” series recorded in 2011, featuring the “Archduke” trio and the trio in E flat, Op. 70 no. 2.

Violinist Jonathan Stone is also a member of the Doric String Quartet, hailed as the eminent quartet of its generation. Cellist Marie Macleod is a renowned soloist, a member of the Lendvai String Trio, the Aronowitz Ensemble (BBC New Generation Artists) and Ensemble 360. Pianist Sholto Kynoch works with many outstanding string players and singers, recently launched his debut CD at Wigmore Hall and is the founder and artistic director of the Oxford Lieder Festival.
