The Mithras Piano Trio play Mozart and Brahms

Friday June 28, 2019 at 13:10
St James's Church, Piccadilly, London
Free admission – no ticket required

  1. Piano Trio No 5 in C K 548 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  2. Piano Trio in C minor Op 101 - Johannes Brahms

Formed of current postgraduate students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Mithras Trio came together in 2017 under the guidance of Matthew Jones, Carole Presland and Ursula Smith. As well as benefitting from tuition with members of the Endellion Quartet, they have also received regular coaching from András Keller and Rolf Hind, and were selected to perform in masterclasses with Ralf Gothóni, Levon Chilingirian, the Takács, Danish and Emerson Quartets, and Alasdair Tait.

Ionel, Leo and Dominic, all Scholarship holders at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, are experienced collaborators, having appeared in the Barbican Hall, City of London Festival, Harmos Festival Portugal, and Orpheus and Bacchus Festival among others. They have also worked in side-by-side performances with eminent musicians including Donald and Vivian Weilerstein, Krysia Osostowicz, Andrew Marriner, Janine Jansen, Wihan and Chilingirian Quartets, and Ben Frith.

They have had individual and group successes in a number of competitions. Most recently, the trio won the String Ensembles Prize at the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition and in April 2018, the Mithras Trio won second prize at the inaugural Intercollegiate Piano Trio Competition at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, performing Brahms’s Trio No 3 in C minor, Op 101 and Shostakovich’s Trio No 2, Op 67.

They have made festival appearances at Lake District Summer Music Festival, Guildhall Chamber Music Festival and most recently Highgate International Chamber Music Festival.

They are passionate exponents of contemporary music, having performed works by Helen Grime and Christopher Brammeld last season, and recently giving the world première of a new piece by Péter Tornyai at the Solti Hall in Budapest, who dedicated the work to the Mithras Trio after working with them. They look forward to two concerts in the Lake District this year, in addition to appearances at the Leeds International Concert Season, Milton Court Concert Hall and the Menuhin School.
