Artist info:-

Trio SOL was formed in 2012 by former members of the Southbank Sinfonia who share a passion for chamber music. They have been long inspired to explore this largely underused combination of instruments after they began work on Brahms’ famous trio for horn, violin and piano. Having researched at length the many unusual and colourful pieces written for horn trio, it became increasingly viable to present Trio SOL as an exciting and innovative alternative to the more common piano trio.

Trio Sol

Trio SOL have recently performed at the Norwegian Opera House in Oslo, at Leeds University’s International Concert Series and Woodford Concert Society in London. They have a huge breadth of chamber music experience to call on, each member having performed internationally. The trio have worked closely with Michael Dussek on different performance techniques and are exploring the many possibilities of established and contemporary repertoire.

David Horwich, french horn

David Horwich is a freelance horn player based in London. A busy orchestral player, he has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia, Welsh National Opera and the Symphony Orchestra of India amongst others. His work has taken him around Europe as well as further afield with recent tours to China, India and Oman. He was a member of Southbank Sinfonia for their tenth season, with whom he performed a number of times in live broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. Also an experienced chamber musician; current engagements revolve mostly around his work as member of Trio SOL, a horn trio with whom he recently performed at the Oslo Opera House.

Following his studies he was selected for the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Foyle's Future Firsts scheme.

She was a member of the London based orchestra Southbank Sinfonia for the year of 2012 and has since then performed as a freelance violinist with orchestras such as Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Manchester Camerata and Orchestra of St Pauls.

St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, also known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Holborn), is an Anglican church in the City of London. It is located on Holborn Viaduct, almost opposite the Old Bailey. In medieval times it stood just outside ("without") the now-demolished old city wall, near the Newgate. It has been a living of St John's College, Oxford, since 1622.
