For three decades, the Parkhouse Award has championed young chamber ensembles of piano and strings, and at the Wigmore Hall it continues the celebration of its 30th anniversary with the last of the three concerts awarded to Trio Bohémo from the Czech Republic, the winners in 2021.

Since receiving the 2021 Parkhouse Award, Trio Bohémo have been winning competitions and prizes across the board in Europe. They are based in the Czech Republic but met in Hungary in 2019, formed the trio and spent a year in lockdown together working on repertoire, to good effect. Their one-hour concert at the Wigmore Hall showcases youthful Shostakovich, both lyrical and fiery, and Smetana’s only piano trio, driven by grief at the loss of three of his four daughters. The concert ends with the joyous Schoenfield Café Music.

Trio Bohémo won 2nd prize at the Gianni Bergamo Award at the very beginning of their career, as a result being invited to join Le Dimore del Quartetto network and the European Chamber Music Academy. They have also won prizes at the ISA Festival in Austria, 1st prize Filippo Nicosia Award, 1st and Audience Prize at the Johannes Brahms Competition in Austria, 1st prize Stasys Vainiunas Chamber Music Competition, joint 2nd prize Joseph Joachim Competition in Weimar. In 2022-23 they will be Britten Pears Young Artists.
