Formed in 2009, the Bilitis Trio met at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The vast range of musical possibilities of this unusual combination of instruments is explored by the three musicians through both well known and newly commissioned repertoire.
New music is a vital element to the Bilitis' music-making and they have premiered several works dedicated to them. They have received coaching from distinguished chamber musicians including Imogen Barford, Philippa Davies, Matthew Jones, Rachel Roberts and members of the Belcea Quartet.
The Bilitis Trio have performed in venues across London including LSO St Luke's as part of a Discovery Concert. Recently they performed in several venues across Scotland as part of their Scottish easter Tour.
The name of the Trio derives from Debussy's Chanson de Bilitis, one of his two chamber works for harp which was performed at the trio's first concert.
