Ensemble Avalon is a fresh and dynamic piano trio featuring three of Ireland’s finest internationally accomplished soloists and chamber musicians. Since their inaugural concert together in the summer of 2006 the trio has performed concerts, tours and series in Ireland, Italy and UK and enjoys regular broadcasts on radio and television. Originating from both Northern and Southern Ireland, all three members have studied intensively in Ireland, the UK, France and the US between them and currently live in three different countries. The three members of Ensemble Avalon each enjoy an active solo and chamber career and they have created Ensemble Avalon as a means to discovering and performing new and existing piano trio repertoire together.

What the critics say:
‘ravishing sensitivity…one of the highlights of my listening year’ Julian Haylock – The Strad
‘There are many fine young musicians now emerging in Ireland, but I suspect if you tried to put a trio together that would reflect that flowering of talent you would be hard pressed to better this one’ – Dick O Riordan Sunday Business Post
‘heart-on-sleeve emotion’ – The Irish Times
