    The Trio Apaches was of officially formed for the 2012 Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival. All well-known musicians to Petworth audiences, the Trio is named after the innovative and often controversial group of Parisian-based artists which formed around 1900. Its members included the composers Ravel, Stravinsky and Manuel de Falla, as well as painters, poets and music critics of the day. The group adopted the name after they’d inadvertently bumped into a newspaper seller who exclaimed “Attention les apaches!”, and was embraced as an appropriate representation of their revolutionary spirit.

    They are joined by three equally respected and dynamic musical peers who on this occasion expand the popular O Duo to a trio. Together with the Trio Apaches, their programme is based around transcriptions of substantial orchestral masterpieces, culminating in their huge version of Shostakovich’s towering and final 15th Symphony, a work notable for its astonishing percussion toccata featuring castanets, snare drum, wood block, xylophone and triangle.
