The final concert in the 2013 Musica Viva Armidale series is the Streeton Trio. Formed in 2008 in Geneva, Switzerland, from three of Australia’s leading young musicians, the Streeton Trio is the only Australian ensemble ever to be selected for the prestigious European Chamber Music Academy, where it has been ensemble in residence since 2010. Currently based in Berlin, this exciting young trio has studied intensively with some of the world’s leading chamber musicians and is highly in demand, engaged to perform extensively across Europe, UK, Scandinavia, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
Named after the Australian Impressionist painter, Sir Arthur Streeton, the trio has received great acclaim for performances in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Het Loo Royal Palace (Holland), Melbourne Recital Centre, Trondheim Festival, Apeldoorn Festival, Pablo Casals Festival (Prades) and Bangalow Festival.
Winner of the 2011 Music Viva Chamber Music Competition, the Streeton Trio has been a finalist in prestigious international competitions, and has won scholarships from Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria and Ian Potter Cultural Trust. In 2012, the trio was selected as Musica Viva’s Rising Stars.
