Shostakovich Trio no. 2 in E minor, Op. 67

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) has been chosen as best version amongst 14 other ones 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).

COVID guidance (applicable for all Respiratory Communicable Diseases)

Updated March 2022

COVID remains prevalent in the UK and WRCH has a duty to ensure all those entering the building – including audiences, performers, volunteers, and staff – are kept safe. Whilst domestic government COVID restrictions in England have now been removed, we must all continue to take steps to minimise the transmission of COVID and other respiratory communicable diseases.

West Road is well equipped to mitigate against transmission through use of ventilation and provision of sanitiser throughout the building.

  • We ask all those visiting the building to contribute to our community’s safety by being fully vaccinated where possible and not attending if they feel unwell.
  • Although not currently mandated, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • Sanitiser dispensers are located in the foyer and around the building. All visitors are encouraged to use these on arrival and exit.
  • The concert hall auditorium has a mechanical ventilation system providing predominantly fresh air. We recommend wearing an additional layer in cooler weather!
  • The foyer and ancillary spaces have CO2 monitors to indicate air quality and natural ventilation that users can adjust.
  • Official advice on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus is available here.
