Three young Belgian musicians — violinist Alice Van Leuven, cellist Paul Heyman and pianist Wouter Valvekens — formed the Trio Ariesout of their mutual passion for chamber music and
4 for the piano trio in particular. Each of them received a broad education, both as soloist and chamber musician, in a world-renowned estab- lishment: Alice at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, Paul at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste in Zurich and Wouter at the Royal Acad- emy of Music in London.
Aries is the Latin name for the constellation of the ram. The trio performs a broad repertoire ranging from classical to contemporary works and is committed to revealing its young and fresh vision of music to its audiences. The music itself is given extra power thanks to the trio’s search for various elements, one of which isthe groove, the synthesis between timbre and timing that is an integral part of every piece of music.
The trio has been active since 2018 and has giv- en recitals at the Klara festival in Bozar and the spring concert at the Royal Palace in Brussels,
the concert series Espace Garage in Ottignies,
the festival Klassiek Leeft Jong in Knokke, the
Midi-Minimes festival, the Zomer van Sint-Pieter
in Leuven, OdeGand in Ghent, and for Klara in
deSingel in Antwerp. The Trio Ariesmade its de- 5 but in the Henri Le Boeuf concert hall of BOZAR in Brussels in June 2020.
The Trio Arieswon the Supernova chamber music competition organised by Radio Klara in Bozar in February 2020. They were awarded a special prize of a CD recording offered by the Beeldenstorm organisation, where the trio has a residency; these were ideal conditions for preparing this programme before recording it for CD in deSingel Antwerp.
