Recognised for powerful interpretations of new as well as established repertoire, the Lawson Trio enjoys an international career dating back eighteen years to the group’s founding at Cambridge University. The group has performed at all of the UK’s major venues, as well as broadcasting live for BBC Radio 3’s Live in Concert and In Tune and for Classic FM, Australia, as part of the final rounds of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.

Keen to devise their own projects as well as commission new music, their recent commemorative project Echoes of World War One, saw the Trio curate collaborative concerts at London’s Kings Place and The Forge and lead educational workshops and concerts at institutions including the Junior Royal Academy of Music and Wells Cathedral School.

The ensemble’s debut CD The Long Way Home was met with great critical acclaim, receiving a five-star review in BBC Music Magazine saying “not just formidable musicians, they are questing spirits who have shown a rare commitment to the creation of new music”.
