The trio is dedicated to rediscovering and performing the veritable mine of over five hundred works written for string trio which, though boasting some of the greatest masterpieces, has many works which are sadly neglected and unknown to the public. In doing so, the endeavour to continually develop an honest, original and unified perception across all musical genres will be inevitable.
