AN AWARD winning and vibrant London trio are back by popular demand in Rhyl with a new member and a new moniker this month.

Trio Derazey - who performed in Rhyl in 2016 as The Jørgensen Trio - will return as part of the club’s 2018-19 International Concert Series, Rhyl Music Club on Wednesday, October 31.

Founded in 2012, violinist Antonia Kesel and cellist Cecilia Bignall have recently welcomed pianist Joseph Havlat into the mix to replace former member Olga Jørgensen.

All three current members have studied at the Royal Academy of Music, where the trio held the CAVATINA Chamber Music Fellowship in 2015-2016, with Jack Liebeck, Robert Cohen and Joanna MacGregor.

The trio was the first ensemble to win both the audience prize and first prize at St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition, as well as first prize at the Malta International Music Competition, in 2015.

They have performed extensively across the UK and Europe, including at St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Oslo Opera House, Dartington, and the National Gallery.

They have played for Menahem Pressler, Trio Owon, Levon Chillingirian, Ian Brown and Kathryn Stott among others, and have attended masterclasses at the Aurora Festival in Sweden and at IMS Prussia Cove, where they studied with Thomas Ades.

The trio explore a wide range of styles in their repertoire, including new works and commissions, and collaborations with other ensembles and genres of music.

To see the next step for the Rhyl Music Club darlings, head to the Town Hall at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £12, free for accompanied 16s and under, and available on the door or via
