“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, which 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, Bonn’s Beethoven-Haus, Brussels’ Centre for Fine Arts, Verbier Festival, Philharmonie de Paris, Lille and Toulon Opera House, Folle Journée de Nantes, Aix-en-Provence International Festival… — the musicians distinguish themselves by the excellence, the clarity and the generosity of their interpretations.
For several years, the Trio Sōra has been perfecting its art with Mathieu Herzog, Menahem Pressler, the Quatuor Danel, the Quatuor Ébène and with the Artemis Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels. Winners of numerous awards in international competitions — HSBC Prize 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 Günther-Caspar Foundation, the Fondation Meyer and the Fondation Safran pour la Musique.
Clémence de Forceville plays on a 1777 Giovanni Battista Guadagnini violin and Angèle Legasa, on a 1767 Giulio Cesare Gigli cello, instruments generously loaned by the Boubo-Music Foundation.
