Founded in 2019 in Geneva, the Trio Ernest performs regularly in Switzerland and throughout Europe. Ensemble in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in the class of Miguel da Silva, Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden and the Artemis Quartet, it has already won six international prizes, including the Pro Musicis Prize (Paris), the first prize of the Verao Classico Chamber Music Award (Lisbon) or the Orpheus Competition (Zürich). The Trio has been a ProQuartet resident since October 2020. In June 2021 it joined the European Chamber Music Academy and work regularly with Patrick Jüdt.
The three musicians explore the piano trio repertoire with passion and creativity in concert series such as Bozar Next Generation (Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels), the Swiss Chamber Music Festival, the Ravel Festival, Les Schubertiades de Sion, the Verao Classico Festival, Les Matinées Musicales d’Arles, Puplinge Classique, Les Moments Musicaux de Chalosse, Ponticello, the Festival Romantique du Loir, as well as in original projects for which they are artistic directors. This approach leads them to collaborate regularly with artists such as Noémie Bialobroda (Aviv Quartet), Ophélie Gaillard, Patrick Genet (Sine Nomine Quartet), Patrick Jüdt, Stephan MacLeod, Gabriel Pidoux, Miguel da Silva, Manuel Vioque-Judde, the Juventutti Orchestra or with the composer Carlos Roque Alsina, whose piece “Quasi Figurativo” they premiered in October 2020.
