The Z.E.N. Trio – pianist Zhang Zuo, violinist Esther Yoo and cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan – met as BBC New Generation Artists in 2015 and have since performed concerts together for BBC Radio as well as across the UK, Europe, China, Canada and United States, including a debut at the prestigious Aspen Music Festival in 2018. In the 2019/20 season, the trio performs in North America, in a six-city tour to San Francisco, Vancouver, Santa Barbara, Boston, Washington and Miami.
Their debut album was released in 2017 on Deutsche Grammophon, featuring Brahms and Dvořák Piano Trios. Their follow-up album will be recorded during this season for the same label.
While the trio’s name, “Z.E.N.” is an acronym for the three artists’ initials, it also represents the philosophy with which they approach chamber music making – the forgoing of the self for total togetherness.
