Trio Ernest
Ernest Trio was founded in 2019 in Geneva. Natasha Roque Alsina joins Stanislas Gosset (violin) and Clément Dami (cello), who have been playing together as members of a quartet since 2013. They immediately shared a great enthusiasm and, shortly after starting to play together, won the Proquartet prize at the FNAPEC European Competition in Paris. The trio is already scheduled to perform at the Festival Les Fieffés Musiciens, the Lyceum Club in Geneva, the Festival de La Glacerie and the Société de Lecture during the Geneva Music Festival.
The three musicians usually perform at prestigious festivals: Festival de Verbier, 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 theatres such as the Grande Salle de la Philharmonie in Paris, the Grand Hall of the KKL in Lucerne, the Paul Klee Zentrum in Berne, the Salle Cortot in Paris. They were heard on the radio, on France Musique, Espace 2 or BBC 3.
Always trying to reach new audiences, the trio likes to go outside the traditional concert venues. They regularly perform in retirement homes, hospitals and schools. Continuing with the Cafés Classiques project started in 2017 by the Ernest Quartet, the Trio organises a monthly concert in the unconventional 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 has received excellent advice from Johannes Meissl, Patrick Jüdt and François Guye at academies such as Villecroze or Ravel. He will participate in the Proquartet’s master classes from October 2019. Individually, the three musicians trained at Europe’s greatest schools: Conservatoire National de Musique de Paris (N. Angelich and C. Désert) then Haute Ecole de Lucerne (Master soloist 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.


Brera Musica returns in 2023 with 10 new appointments to discover some of the most evocative views of the Pinacoteca di Brera.
From March to December 2023, the musicians of Le Dimore del Quartetto, in dialogue with the curator and art historian Alessandra Montalbetti, will introduce the public to the atmospheres of the pictorial and musical landscapes that are the protagonists of this edition.
The concerts are online on the third Thursday of each month, from 6 pm, on the website of the Pinacoteca di Brera and Le Dimore del Quartetto.

Le Dimore del Quartetto
Le Dimore del Quartetto (go to website to learn more +)is a creative cultural enterprise that supports young international string quartets and chamber music ensembles in launching their careers and enhances European cultural heritage, in a circular economy.

Born in 2015 from an idea of Francesca Moncada, Le Dimore del Quartetto develops from a simple exchange: on the eve of an artistic engagement, musicians are hosted free of charge in a mansion for up to a week and, in return, they offer a concert to the owners during their residency period. In this circular economy, the residences become a precious resource for the quartets and vice versa: opportunities to meet in unusual places and often decentralized territories are created, bringing back to life spaces that are not fully used and bringing a new audience to chamber music.

Today, Le Dimore del Quartetto, counts the participation of 91 chamber music ensembles (string quartets and trios, and with piano) with musicians from 41 different countries, 280 historical residences in 17 countries.
With a consolidated network in the field of music and cultural heritage, it deals with projects through the organization of festivals and travel itineraries, masterclasses, master classes and training courses for musicians, educational projects for associations, schools and universities, training and team-building activities for companies, residencies and concerts in historic houses and other places of cultural interest.
