The Chloé Piano Trio (Maria Gîlicel, Jobine Siekman and George Todica) was formed in 2017 by talented emerging musicians at the Royal College of Music, London. The trio has performed across the UK and in France, including at London venues, Charlton House, Royal Academy of Arts, Champs Hill (Sussex), Austrian Cultural Forum, Lichfield Festival, Banstead Arts Festival and Hargrave Festival, to name a few.
In April 2018 the Chloé Piano Trio, back then known as the Daphnis Trio, was nominated by the RCM for the Birmingham Intercollegiate Piano Trio Competition and won the Third Prize. The repertoire of the trio ranges from Baroque and Classical periods to the modern and newly commissioned music. The Chloé Trio is also highly interested in the performance of works written by female composers, having already recorded Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio and Lili Boulanger’s D’un Soir Triste and D’un Matin Du Printemps at Abbey Road Studios.
The ensemble has received tuition from such high profile musicians as Norma Fisher, Lucy Gould, Richard Lester, Ben Hancox, Mark Messenger, Simon Lepper, Suzie Meszaros, Leonid Kerbel, and others. Recent concerts were at the Elgar Room (Royal Albert Hall) and a performance for HRH Prince Charles during his President Visit at the Royal College of Music.
