It was “love at first hearing” for Renaud Capuçon, who fell under the charm of the Trio Hélios’ first recording.

With already plenty of concert experience under their belts, they have been playing all of the best European festivals since 2014, always choosing to showcase the French repertoire, and allowing the public to rediscover forgotten pieces.
Alongside Maurice Ravel’s famed Trio, Hélios will perform some rare chefs-d’œuvre, such as Camille Saint-Saëns’ youthful Trio, but also two rare pieces from Lili Boulanger, the first woman composer to be awarded the Prix de Rome in 1913, who died tragically at the age of 25 from tuberculosis. D’un soir triste and D’un matin de printemps are the ultimate examples of the impressionistic, undulating poetry so typical of French music at the turn of the century.
