The Jacquin Trio are an audacious classical chamber ensemble, dedicated to exploring, expanding and celebrating music for the inimitable combination of clarinet, viola/violin and piano. The only group to have won both the Royal Overseas League and St Martin in-the-Fields Competitions, the Jacquins have been making music together for the best part of a decade. 

 

The trio take their name from the von Jacquin family – the original dedicatees of Mozart’s famous Kegelstatt Trio. With a line up that allows them the rare freedom of music for both violin and viola trio in a single concert, they have a vast and varied repertoire at their fingertips; from works by Mozart, Beethoven, Bruch, Schumann and Kurtag to Stravinsky’s virtuosic violin writing in The Soldier’s Tale or Bartok’s Contrasts.

They have had numerous new works written for them, most recently the award-winning Charlotte Bray’s Blaze and Fall, which was premiered at St John’s Smith Square, and an ongoing set of miniatures by eminent composer Colin Matthews.
