The Zerline Trio
Founded in 2017, the Zerline Trio is comprised of flautist Alice Szymanski, violist Estelle Gourinchas and harpist Joanna Ohlmann. Having met at the Lyon Conservatoire for Music and Dance, from the very beginning of the trio’s formation these three musicians felt the need to play music of their time and encourage the creation of new pieces, while proudly promoting the uniqueness of the repertoire for flute, viola and harp. Particularly fastidious in their choice of music, the Zerline Trio benefits as much as possible from the precious advice of the composers they are championing: Martin Matalon, Alain Louvier and many more.
The performers are convinced that performing contemporary works demands the same level of excellence as that of earlier works and that performing a wide repertoire enhances their interpretations. With this in mind, they embrace a great variety of aesthetics, improving and developing through these fertile and constructive exchanges between the old and the new.
