The contrasting worlds of Brahms and Shostakovich are brought to us by the Astatine Trio, a young piano trio already taking the chamber-music scene by storm.

Formed at the Royal College of Music in 2021, the Astatine Trio was unanimously awarded first prize at the 2022 Senior Intercollegiate Piano Trio Competition as the youngest entrants, with an average age of 18. Since then, it has gone on to win many other prizes and competitions, as well as performing in venues across the UK and abroad, including its Wigmore Hall debut in May 2022.

Friday Lunchtime Concerts
Each Friday from January to March we invite you to our Friday Lunchtime Concerts on the Suffolk Coast. We offer musical delight and respite from the winter winds in the shape of performances by brilliant young ensembles from the UK and abroad. All ensembles in this series are Britten Pears Young Artists for 2023-24, and are on a Chamber Music Residency as part of the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme.

The Britten Pears Young Artist Programme is made possible with the generous support of our Trusts & Foundations and individual supporters.
