Formed in 2009, the international award-winning Fournier Trio has rapidly established itself as one of the leading young chamber ensembles in the UK. Described by Classical Source as having “awesome but restrained technical ability and chamber-music antennae”, they were winners of the prestigious 2013 Parkhouse Award at Wigmore Hall, finalists at Hamburg in 2012 and were recipients of 2nd Prize and Audience Prize at the 6th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2011. The trio has made critically acclaimed debuts at both the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room in London and in 2012 embarked on its first European Tour after their selection for ‘New Masters on Tour’ at the International Holland Music Sessions, culminating with their debut at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.

The Trio made appearances at major UK festivals including the Bath Inter- national Music Festival, Newbury Spring Festival, Chichester Festivities, Brighton, Lamberhurst and Devizes Festivals and toured Scotland extensively as part of their Tunnell Trust Award. Abroad they made regular visits to the Trondheim International Music Festival, in 2010 performing Faure’s Piano Quartet No.2 with Lawrence Power and in 2012 collaborating with Sir Peter Maxwell Davies in a performance of his Piano Trio in addition to giving masterclasses. Last season their performances included three major London recitals at St John’s Smith Square, Purcell Room and Wigmore Hall, a live performance for BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’, and their first visit to the Far East making debuts and masterclasses at Singapore’s Yong Siew Toh Conservatory ‘Ones to Watch’ Series, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, and the brand new Eslite Performance Hall in Taipei.
