Palmer trio

Coming from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon, these three passionate musicians share their sensibilities and emotions by forming the Palmer Trio. They have made a name for themselves at the international competitions in Melbourne, ProMusicis, FNAPEC and Weimar with their passionate and delicate playing.
In spite of their eventful individual careers, these three musicians have a clear interest in chamber music and particularly in piano trio training. Their repertoire ranges from Joseph Haydn to contemporary music, from the great German Romantic composers to French music by Maurice Ravel.
They have perfected their skills with great masters such as the Trio Wanderer, Claire Désert, Emmanuel Strosser, Christian Ivaldi, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Yovan Markovitch, Luc-Marie Aguera, Dana Ciocarlie, Franck Krawczyk, Chantal Stigliani…
During its Master’s degree in chamber music at the CNSMD in Lyon, the Palmer Trio carries out in-depth work on contemporary music. It thus organises concerts to discover these repertoires little known to the general public, such as those of G. Kùrtàg, T. Escaich or Phillipe Hersant.
He also performs during several cultural seasons as well as in various festivals such as « the festival of the Roque d’Anthéron », « the chamber music society of Lyon », « the concerts of the Goethe institute », « La Tour Passagère », « the contemporary week of Bourgoin »…

Born in Reuil Malmaison in 1985, Alex began playing the violin at the age of 6 at the Créteil Conservatory in Pierre HOFER’s class and obtained the Diploma of Musical Studies in 2003. The same year, he began university studies at the Sorbonne in Paris where he obtained a DEUG in musicology in 2005. At the same time, he perfected his skills with Michaël HENTZ and entered a further training course in the class of Catherine JACQUET in Créteil.
In 2005, Alex was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon in the class of Vladimir NEMTANU and Kazimierz OLECHOWSKI, where he obtained his Master’s Degree in Performance with honours in 2010.
Passionate about chamber and orchestral music, Alex continues his studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon in the class of Franck Krawczyk and Yovan Markovitch in the Master of Chamber Music. He then joined the Trio Palmer in the class of the Trio Wanderer at the Pôle Supérieur de Paris where he benefited from the precious advice of Jean Marc Philips, Vincent Coq, Raphaël Pidoux and Emmanuel Strosser.
Alex plays regularly with orchestras such as the Orchestre National de France, the Philharmonic of Radio France, the Capitole de Toulouse. Alex joined the Lyon Opera Orchestra as tuttist violin in October 2010 and as 3rd soloist in October 2015. In 2017, Alex is appointed co-soloist concertmaster at the Bordeaux Aquitaine National Orchestra.

Thomas RAVEZ (cello)

Coming from a family of musicians, Thomas Ravez was introduced to classical music at a very young age. He began playing the cello at the age of 7 and a few years later he entered the Conservatoire National de Région de Reims in the class of Marc-Didier Thirault. This decisive encounter led him to deepen his studies and to approach other great masters such as Jean Marie Gamard, Erwan Fauré, Gary Hoffman, Christophe Coin or Yvan Chiffoleau… He successively obtained a first prize in each of these conservatories: Reims, Rueil-Malmaison, Schola Cantorum of Paris, and then entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse de Lyon, where he received lessons from the cellist Anne Gastinel and her assistant Edouard Sapey-Triomphe. Thomas obtained his Master’s degree from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et Danse de Lyon in June 2010. It was during his studies in Lyon that he met the violinist François Galichet and their shared passion for chamber music quickly led them to create the Quatuor Varèse.

Thomas plays a cello by Pierre Hel generously lent by Yovan Markovitch.
