Paddington Trio

Instruments: Masterclass Programme Ensembles | Piano Trio

Tuulia Hero [violin], Patrick Moriarty [cello], Stephanie Tang [piano]

Having started their first adventure together at Paddington Station during the pandemic in 2020, the Paddington Trio has quickly emerged as a unique and versatile ensemble of a lasting entity. Hailed for their “nuanced and powerful performance” (ROSL News, 18 March 2022), the trio won first prize in the 70th Royal Over-Seas League Competition for Strings & Piano Ensemble. In April 2023, they were the winners of the prestigious Parkhouse Award held in Wigmore Hall. They are supported generously by the City Music Foundation, Kirckman Concert Society and GMZ Management.

Firmly committed to new music and innovative programming , the Paddington Trio was the first prize winner at the NEW FORMATS Project Prize 2022 in Graz, Austria. In March 2023, the trio made their concerto debut, where they performed Beethoven’s Triple Concerto under Jan Söderblom with the Jyväskylä Sinfonia. Having arrived in London from different countries, violinist Tuulia Hero (Finland), cellist Patrick Moriarty (Ireland) and pianist Stephanie Tang (US) seek to build engaging concert programmes curated for changing times and audiences.
