Convivium (aka The Locatelli Trio)

Trio formed in 1992 by the violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch who had been invited to record a series of Italian violin sonatas for the BBC.   There were 12 programmes recorded and because the three musicians enjoyed making it they stayed together and took part in a music festival and began touring.

They have since toured all over the world performing in concerts, at festivals and in radio and television broadcasts.  They toured Australia in 1993 and debuted in the Unites States, in New York, in 1994.

They have made several recordings under the name The Locatelli Trio and Convivium which cover works by Italian and early English composers as well as a collaboration on Handel’s Sonatas.

Historically the Convivium was a social gathering to appreciate food and wine in Roman times.
