Formed in September 2015 at the Royal Northern College of Music, Louko Piano Trio have gone on to win the Hirsch Prize for outstanding performance of a work by Beethoven and the Nossek Prizefor the best performance of a piece from the Romantic period.
Last year the Louko Trio was the first prize winner of the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe Chamber Music Competition in London in which their performance was praised for being 'uniquely involving'. They were recently chosen as one of the four ensembles to participate in Music Coll 2016.
The trio will be available for a meet and greet over coffee following the performance.
