The first meeting between Stephanie Proot and sisters Claire and Aurore Dassesse took place in the fall of 2012, when they were invited by concert promoter Euterpe to interpret the Piano trio in d by Anton Arensky. The concert was a resounding success, after which the three ladies decided to continue the casual collaboration as a permanent ensemble. Bearing in mind their first joint achievement, Claire, Aurore and Stephanie baptized the chamber music group Ensembl'Arenski, a well-chosen name that equally allows them to perform in alternate combinations. As a piano trio, the three musicians take a fresh look at the larger repertoire, and at the same time, they introduce the public to less well-known works.
Looking for the perfect interplay, Ensembl'Arenski went within the walls of the Brussels Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel to study with the renowned Artemis Quartet. The group has already appeared in the program books of numerous national and international concert associations, including the Bijloke, Festival Musiq3, the Musical Instruments Museum and the Concertgebouw Brugge. Ensembl'Arenski was laureate of the 2017 Supernova competition, giving them a helping hand for a concert tour through Belgium and the publication of a first CD.
