Trio Wanderer

The Trio Wanderer was founded in 1987. Its name pays homage to Schubert, whose music repeatedly takes wandering as its theme, but also refers to musicians’ traveling life and wandering through time. The three musicians trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur and studied in Bloomington and at the Juilliard School in New York. They were early in winning prizes at international competitions, have played in the most famous international concert halls, and have collaborated with recognized orchestras. In 1999, they began an intensive collaboration with Harmonia mundi that resulted in more than 20 recordings of the most important piano trios by Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms, etc. and of course Schubert. In 2015, the Trio Wanderer was honored with the renowned French award Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et Lettres. The violinist Jean-Dare Phillips-Varjabédian and the cellist Raphaël Pidoux have taught at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse in Paris since 2014, and the pianist Vincent Coq has taught at the Haute École de Musique in Lausanne since 2010.
