Archaeus String Trio are Ann Hooley (violin), Elizabeth Turnbull (viola) and Martin Bradshaw (cello).
The Archaeus Trio perform the final recital in the Under Ground Theatre’s official 19th season of Chamber Recitals including the String Trio Op.21 by Leonard Salzedo.
No strangers to premiere performance venues across the globe, the quartet enjoys a broad repertoire and several composers have written works specifically for the group including Antonin Tucapsky, Jeffrey Joseph, Jenni Roditi and Leonard Salzedo.
CD recordings include the quartet by Minna Keal; quartets by York Bowen with the quintet for bass clarinet with Timothy Lines; quartets by Ethel Smyth, Amy Beach and Susan Spain-Dunk; Leonard Salzedo; and quartets by Cyril Scott.
All five of their CDs have been received with great critical acclaim. The recording of Salzedo quartets and the sonata for violin and viola (written for and performed by Ann Hooley and Elizabeth Turnbull) was selected as Editor’s Choice in the Gramophone Magazine.
