The De Beauvoir Piano Trio is a prize-winning ensemble formed by violinist Enyuan Khong, cellist Charlotte Kaslin and pianist Élisabeth Pion. The Trio seeks to amplify marginalised voices, and to create a new narrative of classical and contemporary music-making.
They have most recently won the 2nd prize of the Virtuoso & Bel Canto Chamber Music Competition in Italy. They were previously Finalists of the St-Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Competition, postponed due to Covid-19, and were invited to participate on scholarships in festivals across Europe, including Jeunesses Musicales in Germany and Musique à Flaine. The Trio regularly performs in venues across the UK, with engagements as part of the Leeds International Concert Season and in St-Martin-in-the-Fields. They have most recently entered a mentorship with Christoph Richter at Chamber Studio in King’s Place and have a chamber music residency at the Britten Pears Young Artists’ Programme for 2021/22.
The Trio is grateful for the mentorship of Adrian Brendel, Andràs Keller and Ursula Smith, as well as the guidance of Ronan O’Hora, John Myerscough and Richard Ireland.

The De Beauvoir Piano Trio is a prize-winning ensemble formed by violinist Enyuan Khong, cellist Charlotte Kaslin and pianist Élisabeth Pion. Based in London, the Trio seeks to amplify marginalised voices, and to create a new narrative of classical and contemporary music-making. Improvisation, as well as concepts from linguistics, literature and art are incorporated into an exploration of music from unique and different perspectives, ultimately elevating communication with one another and with the audience. Curiosity, discovery and experimentation remain at the core of their creative process.
