The Avanesyan Trio was established in 2010, and unites the brothers Hrachya and Sevak Avanesyan with Julien Libeer, whose individual careers have led them to such venues as the Wigmore Hall in London, the Casa da Musica in Lisbon or the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris.
Since its foundation in 2010, the trio has studied with the members of the Artemis String Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth College of Music in Brussels, and has received regular advice from Augustin Dumay.
The Avanesyan Trio sets as an objective not only to explore the great standards of the repertoire, but also to allow its public to discover less known works, with a particular affinity for Armenian 20th-century chamber music.
Already in their first concert season, 2010 – 2011, the Avanesyan Trio performed at such venues as the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, the Festival de Radio France Montpellier and the Menton Festival in France, to great critical acclaim. They have further toured in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Spain…
Following their Antwerp debut, the association of Belgian music critics awarded them the “Golden Label” prize.
