Artistic Direction

The three members of the Trio started playing together “en famille” over 20 years ago in their family home in London. Over the ensuing years and the subsequent development of their individual careers, the varied and wide-ranging musical experiences of violinist Nathalie Shaw, cellist Jacob Shaw and their father, violist Julian, have directly contributed to the evolution of the trio. Nowadays, the Trio à Cordes Shaw brings together three very different musical worlds and geographical influences, whilst retaining the strong bonds that exist within this unique, almost telepathic form of familial communication.
