About the Trio

Trio Havisham is an award-winning ensemble founded by Zany Denyer and Magdalena Riedl at the Royal Northern College of Music in June 2018, with Fangning Dong joining in September 2021.

To date they have won the Royal Northern College of Music’s Hirsch prize and they later went on to win the 1st prize at the CAVATINA Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition held at Wigmore Hall in May 2022. Of the trio’s performance, adjudicator Roger Wright remarked that ‘they drew you into the performance, and at the same time blew you away’. More recently, in June 2022 they won the 1st prize at the Christopher Rowland Ensemble of the Year Competition, and in November 2022, Trio Havisham will be 1 of 6 ensembles selected to perform in the Birmingham International Piano Chamber Music Competition at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. They recently successfully auditioned for the Tunnell Trust, and will be a part of their roster of artists for the 2023-2024 season.

They have had the pleasure of performing recitals regularly at concert series’ and festivals including the Tattenhall Music Society, Buxton Opera House Coffee Concerts and the Connect Chamber Music Festival in Manchester. Highlights of the upcoming concert series include recital engagements in London at Conway Hall, in Ambleside at the Lake District Concert Society, and in Liverpool at Crosby Hall.

The trio are grateful to have performed in masterclasses and received mentoring from eminent chamber musicians including Fanny Robilliard, Louis Rodde & Paloma Kouider (Trio Karènine), Petr Prause (Talich Quartet), Donald Grant (Elias String Quartet), Wu Qian (Sitkovetsky Trio), Michael Dussek, Jeremy Young, Leonard Elschenbroich, Hannah Roberts, Yair Kless, So-Ock Kim, Jonathan Fisher, Henk Guittart, and the Gould Piano Trio.
