The trio is supported by the association Musicabel, affiliate member of Chamber Music for Europe (Brussels) and, since 2019, part of ProQuartet (Paris).
The trio gives his all to interpret and defend the Belgian repertoire: each concert includes one pieceof work of a Belgian composer. This approach allows the promotion of heaps of unsuspected treasures, the contributions of famous composers and creators less known by the general public for their Piano Trio works.
Moreover, very concerned about putting forward today music, the three musicians focus on playing and commissioning contemporary works. By this means, they get enriched with the meeting of composers such as Benoit Mernier, Jean-Luc Fafchamps, Jacqueline Fontyn or furthermore Nicolas Bacri.
