Sensational playing by the Aquinas Trio at their Sunday morning Wigmore concert: sparkling, brilliantly witty Haydn followed by voluptuously phrased Brahms. This is a terrific ensemble.”   Barry Millington, Chief Music Critic, Evening Standard.

RUTH ROGERS studied with Ithak Rashkovsky and Herman Krebbers. Described as “the finest of the younger generation of violinists”(Musical Opinion)and hailed by the Guardian as “superb”, Ruth us in demand as soloist, leader and chamber musician. She worked as co-leader of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra from 2008 until 2012 and has since appeared as guest leader of any of the other major orchestras including the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. Ruth also plays with the John Wilson Orchestra.

KATHERINE JENKINSON is recognised as one of the UK’s leading cellists, specialising in solo and chamber music. In 2018, Katherine had the privilege of recording a new cello concerto with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra which was written for her by the British composer, Oliver Davis. Chamber music is a key part of Katherine’s musical life. She was a founder member of The Ratio Piano Trio and was a member of the Allegri String Quartet 2008 -2011 and Luventus Quartet and Ensemble. In Contemporary music, Katherine has worked closely with composer, Avo Part, Ththony Payne, Richard Allain and Thomas Hyde. Katherine plays on an Italian cello by Taningardi made in 1703. She is grateful to the Countess of Munster for their help in the purchase and restoration of this cello.

MARTIN COUSIN is regraded as one of the most exceptional pianists of his generation, having been awarded 1st prize at the 2005 Ettore Pozzoli International Piano Competition (Seregno Italy) and Gold Medal 1t the 2003 Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition (London). Martin appears regularly at the major London musical venues and has performed as concerto soloist with the Philharmonia, London Philharmonic, Halle, Royal Philharmonic and BBS Concert Orchestras. 2006 saw the release of his debut CD of Rachmaninov’s Sonata no 1 and Morceaux de Salon with SOMM Recordings, which was selected as Classical CD of the week by the Daily Telegraph. The US magazine Fanfare added, “This is the performance of the 1st sonata that I have always heard in my head but never thought I’d actually get to hear with my ears. This guy’s the Real Deal!” Martin’s hands are also featured n the big screen in the Oscar -winning film “Shine” for the scenes involving Rachmaninov’s 3rd Concerto.
