“Not just formidable musicians, the Lawson Trio are questing spirits who have shown a rare commitment to the creation of new music…” BBC Music Magazine
Gaining recognition both for their performances of the cornerstones of the trio repertoire as well as lesser known works and their own new commissions, the Lawson Trio has appeared at major venues including London’s Wigmore Hall, King’s Place, the Southbank Centre, and at many UK music societies and international festivals, with live concert broadcasts given on BBC Radio 3 and ABC Classic FM.
The ensemble’s debut CD ‘The Long Way Home’, which features four of their own commissions, met with critical acclaim, receiving a five-star review in BBC Music Magazine, and enthusiastic reviews in Classical Music Magazine, the Sunday Times and the Independent.
The ensemble has been selected as a featured artist by the Park Lane Group, Making Music’s Concert Promoters’ Group, Music in the Round, Concordia Foundation and CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust, giving season highlight concerts recently at the Wigmore Hall for Park Lane Group and CAVATINA. They also reached the final rounds of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, 2011.
Forthcoming events in 2014 will include performances at the Wigmore Hall, Buxton Festival and a 2-day event at London’s King’s Place focusing on music written 1914-18 to commemorate the centenary of World War One.
The Lawson Trio is grateful to Philip Carne and the Richard Carne Trust for their generous support. www.lawsontrio.com
