Formed in 2012, the Leonore Trio brings together three internationally acclaimed artists whose piano trio performances as part of Ensemble 360 were met with such enthusiastic responses that they decided to form a piano trio in its own right.

The Lenore Trio’s members are keen exponents of contemporary music; they will play Haydn's Trio No.29, Enescu's Piano Trio, and Rachmaninov's powerful and dramatic Trio Elégiaque No.2.
