Hugo Meder (violin), Bo-Geun Park (cello) and Virgile Roche (piano) founded the Pantoum Trio in 2016, at the beginning of their studies at the CNSMD of Paris. Quickly developing an exceptional complicity on stage and off, these young and brilliant musicians were able to give substance to their common passion for chamber music, and begin the difficult search for the balance between perfect musical cohesion, and the enhancement of the artistic personality of each.
Under the direction of Emmanuelle Bertrand and Michaël Hentz, they then began an in-depth study of the chamber music repertoire for strings and piano, which they were fortunate enough to pursue in the prestigious class of the Trio Wanderer at the CRR de Paris between 2018 and 2020, and in that of Claire Désert and Ami Flammer at the CNSMDP since 2019.
Hugo, Bo-Geun and Virgile have also received advice from internationally renowned musicians such as Marc Coppey, Alexis Galpérine, Emmanuel Strosser or Olivier Charlier, and have had the chance to meet members of the Ebene and Modigliani quartets during master-classes at the CNSMDP, as well as to work with members of the Talich and Škampa quartets thanks to the ECMA (European Chamber Music Academy) program.
The trio was awarded a second prize at the Illzach International Chamber Music Competition and was scheduled to participate in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in May (postponed to 2021).
In 2019, the Pantoum Trio performed at the Philharmonie de Paris (Grand Salle Pierre Boulez) as part of the Préludes aux concerts de l’Orchestre de Paris, as well as at the Festival international de piano de la Roque d’Anthéron as an ensemble in residence, and in Norway at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Festival.
