The Marylebone Trio

The Marylebone Trio
Jemma Bausor – oboe
Helen James – clarinet
Alexandra Davidson – bassoon
The Marylebone Trio, is a classical woodwind trio formed in 2003 by postgraduate students at the Royal Academy of Music. Since then the trio has given a large number of recitals to appreciative audiences around the UK, including appearances at music festivals in Deal, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon; numerous music societies; recital series at the National Portrait Gallery, Quay Arts (Isle of Wight), Brighton College, Cambridge University and UCL and are often invited back to give further performances. The trio recently reached the finals of the Tunnell Trust chamber music competition. The Marylebone trio has performed recitals on board cruise ships, travelling to countries including Australia, Hong Kong, Norway and Russia. They also provide music for weddings and corporate events and have played at a garden party in the presence of HRH Prince Edward, the Dorchester Hotel for a masquerade ball and in the unusual setting of Marylebone Station for the launch of a new Chiltern Railways service. The trio’s repertoire is wide and varied, including music by Mozart and Beethoven, several gems from 20th-Century France, Britain and Eastern Europe, many of which are inspired by folk songs. The trio are constantly expanding their repertoire, and in 2009, commissioned two young British composers to fashion contemporary responses to Eastern European folksongs.

Reviews

We had a very successful and varied season. There were many highlights, I will mention my personal favourites. I remember specifically the polished performance of the Marylebone Trio…
Elza Lusher, Egham and District Music Club
It was an excellent concert, with attractive and varied repertoire, immaculate playing and very good rapport with the audience, who were most appreciative. We will certainly be wanting a repeat performance.
Hugh Mather, St Mary’s Church, Perivale
Thank you all for giving us such a memorable concert on Saturday. It was a brilliant performance and very much appreciated. I was very pleased that you attracted such a large audience, to get so many people was excellent and a reflection on our audience’s expectations which you met in spades.
David Ford, Yatton Music Society
You had everyone in tears (and for the right reasons!) Absolutely fantastic!
