Acclaimed for its extraordinarily sensitive style, almost telepathic understanding of each other and technical mastery, the Paris-based Trio Wanderer is one of the world’s foremost chamber ensembles. Called a ‘Wandering Star’ by the Strad Magazine, the Trio has performed on the most prestigious music stages of the world: Berlin’s Philharmonie, Paris’ Théâtre des Champs Elysées, the Vienna Musikverein, London’s Wigmore Hall, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Barcelona’s Palau de la Musica, Washington’s Library of Congress, Rio de Janeiro’s Teatro Municipal, Tokyo’s Kioi Hall, Zürich’s Tonhalle and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. They have also performed at major festivals such as Edinburgh, Montreux, and Salzburg.

They have collaborated on numerous occasions with artists such as Yehudi Menuhin, Christopher Hogwood, James Loughran, François-Xavier Roth, José Areán, Charles Dutoit and James Conlon, and they have been accompanied, in triple or double concertos, some of the world’s most famous orchestras.

Their recordings have been awarded numerous major prizes including Choc du Monde de la Musique, Critic’s Choice and Editor Choice of Gramophone, CD of the Month’ by the BBC Music Magazine, Diapason d’Or of the Year, Midem International Classical Music Award. The New York Times declared their interpretation of Mendelssohn’s Piano Trios the new reference-point for these works, and their Schubert Trout Quintet and Hummel Quintet recording have been included in Forbes’s Top 100 Quality Music Library. In 2016, their recording of Schubert Trio no. 2 in E-flat (which they play in the concert for Camerata Musica Cambridge) was chosen as best version on record by BBC Radio 3’s ‘Building a Library – CD Review’ .

In 2015, Trio Wanderer’s members were honoured with the rank of Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters of the French Republic (Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et Lettres).
