Paddington Trio Saturday 25th February

1 year ago

Join the Paddington Trio at SEACC for an evening of electrifying chamber music, including pieces by Haydn, Dmitri Shostakovich, Arvo Paart and Judith Weir, from 6:30pm on Saturday 25th February 2023.

Following an unexpected clash with England’s final world cup game, we postponed the Paddington’s Trio’s performance on the 10th December, which was part of our winter event schedule.

However, we are pleased to announce that we will welcome them to SEACC on  Saturday 25th February for what will be a fantastic evening of entertainment.

Admission is free and this includes a welcome glass of Prosecco (or suitable non-alcoholic equivalent) upon arrival.

Booking is not required, so we advise guests to arrive at the centre early to secure a seat and avoid missing out.

About the Paddington Trio

Having started their first adventure together at Paddington Station during the pandemic in 2020, the Paddington Trio has quickly emerged as a unique and versatile ensemble. Hailed for their “nuanced and powerful performance” (ROSL News, 18 March 2022), the trio won first prize in the 70th Royal Over-Seas League Competition for Strings and Piano Ensemble. They are 2022 City Music Foundation Artists.

Committed to thoughtfully-curated programming, as well as passionate advocates of new classical music, the Paddington Trio was the first prize winner at the NEW FORMATS Project Prize 2022 in Graz, Austria. In 2021, they won 2nd prize and the jury prize for the Best Interpretation of an Estonian Work at the Tallinn International Piano Chamber Music Competition as well as 1st prize at the Clara Schumann International Competition.

Their recent performances include concerts at Wigmore Hall, Barnes Music Society, Oxford Coffee Concerts, Leeds International Concert Season and the Creative Oundle International Festival. Upcoming concert highlights include debut performances at the St. George’s Bristol, Brighton Dome, King’s Place, LSO St. Luke’s, King’s Lynn Festival and BBC Total Immersion concert series.

Having all studied individually at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, the trio is currently part of the Guildhall Artist Fellowship programme. During their studies, they had the privilege to work with Levon Chilingirian, Robert Levin, Johannes Meissl, Adrian Brendel, David Dolan and members of the Takács, Endellion, Meta4 and Kamus quartets. The trio worked with Thomas Adés at the IMS Prussia Cove’s 50th anniversary masterclasses.

Having arrived in London from different countries, violinist Tuulia Hero (Finland), cellist Patrick Moriarty (Ireland) and pianist Stephanie Tang (US) seek to build engaging concert programmes curated for changing times and audiences
