Ernest Chausson’s stirring music was the impulse behind the beginning of Trio Chausson’s career. Since then, the trio has won numerous international chamber music awards and have been Gramophone’s Choice of the Month. They make their Conway Hall début with a programme featuring a rare performance of music by French female composer Cécile Chaminade.

Inspired by Ernest Chausson’s stirring and at the same time sparkling music, which is significantly characteristic for an important era of the French art, the ensemble gave its very first concert in the course of the festival de Clairac. This was the beginning of the Trio Chausson’s successful career. In the meantime the French Trio Chausson gave numerous concerts in Europe, the United States and Brazil. Within the series Rising Stars the trio has performed in major European concert halls as well as the Carnegie Hall New York.

They gave highly successful concerts at festivals as Folles Journées Nantes, La Roque d’Anthéron, Tours, Prades, Echternach, Vendsyssel and Heidelberg. They lately appeared in Frankfurt, Munich, Venice, Metz, Clermont-Ferrand, Paris and played the first performance of the Triple Concerto by Chausson/Mathieu Lamboley with the Orchestre d’Auvergne and a number of concerts of this composition in France. Forthcoming highlights of the trio are concerts in Paris, Tilburg, Klagenfurt and Bensheim among others.

Boris de Larochelambert and Antoine Landowski studied individually at the Conservatorium in Paris and had chamber music classes with Pierre-Laurent Aimard together. After graduating they continued studying under Claire Désert, Ami Flammer and Alain Meunier. Leonard Schreiber studied at the Purcell School of Music and Royal College of Music in London graduating with First Class honours. He has performed with the Borodin Quartet, violist Miguel da Silva, cellist Henri Demarquette and pianist Andrei Korobeinikov among others. Admitted to the European Chamber Music Academy, which supports young and aspiring cutting edge ensembles, the trio subsequently gained important impulses by collaborating with significant chamber musicians such as Hatto Beyerle, Anner Bylsma, Gérard Wyss, Eckart Heiligers, Shmuel Ashkenazy, Rainer Kussmaul and Johannes Meissl. Especially by Hatto Beyerle the Trio was intensely fostered.

The Trio Chausson drew the attention as the winner of the International Chamber Music Competition Joseph Joachim in Weimar 2005 as well as laureate of the Joseph Haydn Competition Vienna 2004 with an award for the best interpretation of contemporary music. Owing to these outstanding results, the French Association for Artistic Action chose the Trio to participate in its 'Déclic' programme in 2005, which includes a live recording at Radio France and international concert tours. The Trio also received grants from the Société Générale and the ADAMI.

Mirare Records has released five CDs with trios by Chausson, Ravel, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Cécile Chaminade, René Lenormand, Haydn and Hummel which garnered great acclaim. The Trio Chausson received the Gramophone Editor’s Choice of the month for their latest CD with trios by Haydn and Hummel.
