Trio Strandmon is an established ensemble formed by three young Spanish musicians who share both friendship and a striking love for chamber music. After 5 years of sharing music, the personal affinity of the members is truly reflected on the way they express themselves on stage, showing a high level of communication during their performances.
This ensemble aims to bring the audience an energetic and fresh perspective on the piano trio repertoire together with a refined link to the traditions and a strong respect for the style. They are also immerse on the task of giving Spanish music a relevant position on the European landscape --where it has been always warmly welcomed-- researching and working on composers like J. Turina, F. Arbós or I. Albeniz.
Trio Strandmon is also expanding its repertoire looking for new compositions and unknown works created for this formation. Combining their professional activities with an active learning process they have performed at different venues in Portugal, France, The Netherlands, and Spain. They have also attend to master classes with musicians such as Jean-Bernard Pommier, Timothy Park, Levon Chilingirian, and Quiroga Quartet. In 2016 they won the first prize at the VI Caja Rural-Consmupa Chamber Music Competition and in 2021 they got the second price at International Chamber Music Contest of Arnuero.
Their members Ignacio Rodríguez (violin), Delia Sainz (cello) and Héctor Sanz Castillo (piano) are currently pursuing their master at Conservatorium Maastricht under the guidance of Professor Alexander Chaushian.
