In 2009 the talented young musicians of the Leonari Trio were winners of the Pettman/ROSL ARTS International Scholarship for a New Zealand Chamber Ensemble. As a result of this award, they undertook a tour of the UK in 2010, playing sold out concerts in major venues such as St. Martin-in-the-Fields and St. James Piccadilly, and at the Budleigh Salterton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals – receiving standing ovations and invitations to return.
The Leonari Trio was formed at the University of Waikato in 2009. Tutored mainly by the NZ Chamber Soloists, they have played around NZ to great acclaim and are regularly broadcast by Radio NZ Concert. All three players have had individual successes at major competitions such as the National Concerto Competition, the PACANZ Young Performer of the Year and the Kerikeri National Piano Competition.
Their programme includes Beethoven’s famous “Ghost” Trio, Brahms’s First Piano trio, written when he was only 20, alongside NZ‘s John Psathas’s exotic “Island Songs”.
Held in Prince Edward Auditorium, Wanganui Collegiate.
