Formed in 2015, the Odysseus Piano Trio is developing a reputation as one of the most dynamic and distinctive ensembles to emerge in recent years. The trio have performed at Kings Place, St David’s Hall and regularly perform in festivals and concert societies in the UK.

Sara Trickey enjoys an exciting and diverse career as a solo violinist and chamber musician. Noted for her ‘fiery and passionate’ performances (The Strad) and ‘beautifully refined tone’ (Musical Opinion), she performs at many of the UK’s major venues and events, including the Presteigne, Alwyn, Oxford May Music, York and Wye Valley Chamber Music festivals. She plays regularly with pianist Daniel Tong with whom she has recorded the Schubert Sonatinas to critical acclaim (‘Irresistible!’ – Barry Millington). A CD of Fauré and David Matthews has recently been released by Deux-Elles.

Rosie Biss is principal cellist of Welsh National Opera and, outside that role, she enjoys a busy and varied career as a chamber musician, soloist, guest principal and teacher. As a recitalist and former member of the Zehetmair Quartet and Trio, European Music Project and Scottish Ensemble, Rosie has played throughout Europe and America, broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and WDR 3, and performed at major music festivals including Edinburgh, Aspen, Verbier and Schleswig-Holstein.

Robin Green enjoys a busy career as a piano soloist, chamber musician and conductor. His Dialog mit Mozart CD on the Gramola label was ‘Editor’s Choice’ in The Strad, and Gramophone wrote of Games Chorales and Fantasie on the Claves label: ‘Green….an intelligent and sensitive musician with a genuine flair for imaginative programming.’ Former recipient of the Leverhulme Chamber music fellowship at the Royal College of Music, Robin was first prizewinner of the Royal Overseas League Chamber Music Competition and Concours Nicati in Switzerland and runner-up at the International Schubert Duo Competition.
