Trinity Laban trio wins Cavatina Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition

The Nemesis Trio - Heather Stewart (violin), Helena Svigelj (cello) and Amos Lucidi (piano) – has won the Cavatina Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition.

The competition is open to all major UK conservatoires, and is always fiercely contested. This year’s competition was held at the Royal Academy of Music on Monday 15 May 2017. The trio gave an outstanding performance of Beethoven's Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 1, No. 3.

This is the second year running that Trinity Laban students have won the competition, following last year’s win by the Isbilia Quartet. The Nemesis Trio has benefited from working with Trinity Laban’s professors and also the Wihan Quartet, the Richard Carne Quartet in Residence. All three members of the trio are scholarship recipients and this triumph demonstrates the value of supporting our students.

Helena said:

“As chamber music is our passion, we are thrilled to have won the 2017 Cavatina Competition! We would like to offer special thanks to professors David Kenedy and Peter Tuite, and to the Wihan Quartet for their enthusiastic support.”
