The Eblana String Trio is a long established and highly acclaimed group championing the great music for string quartet minus one. Formed in 2006 at the Royal Northern College of Music, the trio has given countless performances throughout Ireland, the UK and beyond, winning praise from audiences and critics alike for their powerful interpretations of this often neglected repertoire. Their 2021 album, “The King’s Alchemist” was selected as chamber CD of the Month in a 5-star review in BBC Music Magazine.

Their programme for this tour includes three of the highlights of the repertoire, Beethoven’s G major trio Op.9/1, Ian Wilson’s second string trio ‘Bone Icon’ and Dohnanyi’s delightful Serenade.

Since its debut in Dublin in 2006, the Eblana String Trio has given countless performances throughout Ireland, the UK and beyond, winning praise from audiences and critics alike for their powerful interpretations of this often neglected repertoire.

Recital concert highlights include Wigmore Hall, St John’s Smith Square, and the Purcell Room, as well as the Bridgewater Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall. The trio has also made appearances at major festivals such as Salisbury, Lake District Summer Music, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Musikfest Goslar. Their many performances at the annual RNCM Chamber Music Festivals include a critically acclaimed performance of the Schoenberg String Trio – “…the late, mercurial, if elliptical, String Trio, a sort of 12-tone divertimento, was brilliantly undertaken by the Eblana String Trio.” (Paul Driver – Sunday Times). The trio has also broadcast on Radio 3 on many occasions.

The Eblana’s debut album, The King’s Alchemist was released with Willowhayne Records in 2021 to great acclaim. The album was selected as chamber CD of the Month in a 5-star review in BBC Music Magazine.

City Music Foundation Artists, the trio are passionate about championing new repertoire and have worked closely with many of the leading British composers on their works. These include David Matthews, Hugh Wood, Robin Holloway, and James Francis Brown. They have also given the World Premieres of works written for them by Joel Rust, Grace-Evangeline Mason, and Rhiannon Randle.

In addition to their studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, the trio attended the International Musicians’ Seminar Prussia Cove, as well as sessions of the European Chamber Music Academy. From 2013 until 2015, they held a Junior Fellowship in chamber music at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and now continue their association as visiting tutors in Chamber Music.
