Trio Balthasar is a new chamber group, committed to imaginative, diverse programming. Since their launch at Wigmore Hall in 2022 they have appeared at the City Music Foundation’s Wigmore Hall Gala, the Rye Festival, Petworth Festival and the Kirker Music Festival on Ischia. The name Balthasar was initially suggested by Burnside as a homage to the German baroque architect Balthasar Neumann. As he was on the point of rejecting it as too pretentious, his colleagues pointed out that Balthasar was also the name of one of the Wise Men in the Nativity story. From which developed the idea of three men on a journey, bearing gifts. Individually each member of the Trio Balthasar has been praised for their vivacity, emotional depth and breathtaking playing.

Comprised of Michael Foyle, 2016 winner of The Netherlands Violin Competition, principal cellist of the London Symphony Orcherstra, Tim Hugh, and acclaimed pianist Iain Burnside, the Trio present a programme where central masterpieces sit alongside diverse repertoire.

“Trio Balthasar work seamlessly together. Each member is exceptionally talented in their own field.” – KT Bruce, Rye News.
