Mizuta Trio are an emerging young String Trio who met at the Junior Royal Academy of Music. They enjoy performing new repertoire alongside the great classics. Amongst them ranks the talented Sheku Kanneh-Mason, BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016.
The Mizuta Trio met in 2013 and soon decided to develop their ensemble to the highest possible level, playing both string trios and piano quartets, and winning the Junior Royal Academy chamber music prize and also the Senior Pro Corda chamber music prize.
Since then, the Trio been gaining increasing recognition as a creative and accomplished group, appearing on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and giving concerts at St. John’s Smith Square, St Martins-in-the-Fields and Oxford’s Holywell Music Room. Over the past years, the Trio has explored a wide variety of music, both traditional and more obscure, with well-received performances of works by composers Berkeley and Moeran.
Each member of the Mizuta Trio is also developing a solo career: Hana Mizuta-Spencer recently performed Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with the Junior Academy Orchestra, Alinka Rowe is about to premiere a new Viola Concerto by Daniel Hogan, and Sheku Kanneh-Mason is currently BBC Young Musician of the Year.
Building on its early success, the Mizuta Trio is looking forward to many more years of playing together and exploring new repertoire alongside the great classics of Mozart and Beethoven.
