Natasha Roque Alsina, piano

Clèment Dami, cello
The Trio Ernest was founded in 2019 in Geneva. Natasha Roque Alsina joins Stanislas Gosset (violin) and Clément Dami (cello), who had been playing on stage together as quartet members since 2013. They immediately feel a great joy sharing music together, and weeks only after having started, they won the Proquartet prize at the FNAPEC European Competition in Paris. The trio is already scheduled to play in the Festival Les Fieffés Musiciens, at the Lyceum Club in Geneva, at the Festival de La Glacerie, and in the Société de Lecture during the Geneva Music Festival.
The three musicians are used to play in prestigious festivals : Verbier Festival, Festival de La Roque d’Anthéron, Festival de l’Orangerie de Sceaux, Les Musicales de Colmar, Centre de Musique de Chambre de Paris, Festival Jeunes Talents, Festival Ravel, Les Musicales de Wesserling, Festival Sine Nomine, Festival Gaia, Piano en Saintonge. They have played in halls such as la Grande Salle de la Philharmonie de Paris, the big hall of the KKL in Lucerne, the Paul Klee Zentrum in Bern, the Salle Cortot in Paris. They have been heard on the radio, on France Musique, Espace 2 or the BBC 3.
Always trying to reach new audiences, they like to go outside of the traditional concert venues. They regularly perform in retirement homes, hospitals and schools. Keeping on with the Cafés Classiques project that was started in 2017 by the Ernest Quartet, the Trio organizes one concert each month in the untraditional setting of the Salle du Terreau, which is normally used for parties with DJ sets and current music.
The Trio studies with Miguel da Silva (Ysaye Quartet) and have received great advice from Johannes Meissl, Patrick Jüdt and François Guye in Academies such as Villecroze or Ravel. It will participate in the Proquartet masterclasses from October 2019. Individually, the three musicians have trained in the greatest European Schools: Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris (N. Angelich and C. Désert) then Haute Ecole de Lucerne (Soloist Master with K. Lifschitz) for Natasha ; Haute Ecole de Genève (F. Guye and B. Cocset) and Conservatoire de Paris (M. da Silva) for Clément ; and then Haute Ecole de Genève (M.-A. Nicolas and G. Takács-Nagy) and Académie Jaroussky (G. Laurenceau) for Stanislas.
