Lucy Gould is
violinist of the Gould Piano Trio. Winner of the Melbourne, Florence and
Charles Hennen International Competitions, the Gould Trio are regular visitors
to the Wigmore Hall, celebrating their 25th anniversary there with an all-Schubert
recital and a complete Beethoven trio cycle in the 2017/18 season. ECHO 'Rising
Stars' in their early days, the trio has performed in major European halls and
at the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, New York. They regularly tour to
the USA, the Washington Post claiming ’the only comparison that comes to mind
is the old Beaux Arts Trio; the combination of jeweller-like precision and a
musical fire that ignites from the first bar’. Their extensive discography
includes complete trio cycles of Beethoven (recorded live at St. George's,
Bristol), Brahms, Dvorak, Mendelssohn and Hummel.
Lucy has played as a guest of the Nash Ensemble, Ensemble 360, London Bridge
Trio, and as a member of the Soloists of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Her
disc of John Ireland Violin Sonatas was BBC Music Magazine Chamber Choice. In
addition to her position as principal second violin of the Chamber Orchestra of
Europe Lucy has appeared as guest leader of the CBSO, Halle, City of
London Sinfonia, Britten Sinfonia, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields and the
BBC Symphony, Philharmonic, Scottish Symphony and National Orchestra of Wales.
She teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where the Gould
Piano Trio is also Ensemble in Residence and from where she received an
Honorary Fellowship in 2015.
