Arnold String Trio

The Arnold Trio was born in 2018 from the meeting of three young soloists, Shuichi Okada (Violin) Manuel Vioque-Judde (Viola) and Bumjun Kim (Cello). 

All three winners of major international competitions (Lipizer, Markneukirchen, Primrose, Tertis, Osaka…), they are regularly called upon to play on the greatest stages as soloists and chamber music players: The Victoria Hall in Geneva, the Théâtre des Champs Elysée, the Philharmonie de Paris, Salle Pleyel, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Liège Philharmonic, Schloss Elmau, the Matsumoto Harmony Hall or the Tanglewood Seiji Ozawa Hall… 

Greatly influenced by a decade of training at the prestigious international chamber music academy of conductor Seiji Ozawa, where they received advice from Pamela Frank, Nobuko Imai, and Sadao Harada, the ensemble is characterized by its constant search for a highly homogeneous sound usually reserved exclusively for string quartets. Ensemble in residence at the Singer-Polignac Foundation, the 2020 and 2021 seasons of Trio Arnold are devoted to the complete string trios by Ludwig van Beethoven published in 2021 for the Mirare Label. 

The trio is currently in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel.

Sélim Mazari

Born in 1992 in Garenne-Colombes, Parisian suburbs, Sélim Mazari began playing piano at the age of 5 with one of his parent’s neighbors, Suzel Ginisty, a pupil of the great pianist Brigitte Engerer. He made such prodigious progress that he was admitted in 2004 to the Conservatoire to study with Pierre Reach, at the age of only 11 years old. During summer 2003, he took part in a music academy in Nice, where he met Brigitte Engerer. He is so inspired and influenced by the virtuoso teacher that he chooses to continue his studies with her. He is unanimously admitted to her class at the Superior Conservatoire of Paris, where he improved under her tutelage until her premature death in 2012. He continues his studies with Claire desert as well as Rena Shereshevskaya, Michel Dalberto and Jean-Claude Pennetier at the Academy in Villecroze. After graduating from the Conservatoire, he leaves France for London to pursue studies at the Royal College where he starts working with Dmitri Alexeev. He meets in London Avedis Kouyoumdjian, the renowned teacher and friend of Brigitte Engerer, pupils of Dieter Weber and Stanislav Neuhaus, who becomes his mentor and invites him to perfect his training at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. He was nominated at the “Victoires de la Musique Classique 2018”, in the category of young solo instrumentalists.

His first recording, Beethoven’s Variations (for MIRARE label), recorded in Lyon and produced by Piano à Lyon, was released in January 2020 for the Folles Journées in Nantes, celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
