MAGNUS JOHNSTON | Violin
GUY JOHNSTON | Cello
TOM POSTER | Piano
Magnus and Guy Johnston have played chamber music together since their early childhood. They met Tom Poster in 2000, when Guy and Tom were in the final of the BBC Young Musician competition together, and shortly afterwards began performing together as a trio, giving concerts at festivals and music clubs throughout their early twenties. In 2004, Magnus invited Guy and Tom to become founder members of the Aronowitz Ensemble, with which they continue to perform, and the trio repertoire was put on hold while they explored the larger chamber works.
Recent invitations to appear as a trio led Magnus, Guy and Tom to realise how much they’d missed the trio medium, and they are now determined to devote as much time to exploring its riches as their busy schedules allow. The Aronowitz Trio is exploring the trio and duo works of Schubert, with performances at Lammermuir Festival, various venues in the UK, in The Netherlands and Prague while plans for a Beethoven trio cycle are taking shape for the following season. The trio recently recorded Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ Trio for the King’s College Cambridge label.
