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. The trio recently won first prize in the 70th Royal Over-Seas League Competition for Strings & Piano Ensemble and have become 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, Milton Court Concert Hall, St Mary’s Perivale, Tapiola Summer Concert Series in Finland and the Creative Oundle International Festival. Upcoming concert highlights include debut performances at the Oxford Coffee Concerts, St. George’s Bristol, Brighton Dome 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.
