Only a week later they were awarded second prize (with no first prize awarded) and prize for the best performance of contemporary piece at the International Joseph Joachim Competition in Weimar, Germany.
For the 2022/23 season, the trio was selected for the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme. Other highlights of the season include recitals in Wigmore Hall (London), Stoller Hall (Manchester), Solti Hall (Budapest) and appearances at festivals such as Classix Festival (Romania) and Shaldon Festival, Devon. The trio will perform across Europe.
Since 2020, they have been members of the European Chamber Music Academy, studying under the guidance of professors such as Hatto Beyerle, Johannes Meissl, Patrick Jüdt and Avedis Kouyoumdjian. The opportunities provided by ECMA enabled them to perform at multiple stages across Europe.
