Passionate about chamber music and united by a deep friendship, Camille, Raphaël and Alexis founded the Trio Hélios in 2014. Since then they have travelled the French and international scene exploring the magnificent piano trio repertory.
The Trio Hélios is a frequent visitor to such prestigious halls as the Philharmonie de Paris, the Phoenix Hall in Osaka and the Wigmore Hall, and has won prizes at numerous international competitions, including Lyon, Illzach, Trondheim and Joseph Joachim. It held a residency at the Festival de La Roque d’Anthéron from 2015 onwards, followed by the Festival des Arcs, the Festival Pablo Casals in Prades and the Rencontres Musicales d’Évian, and is also regularly invited to appear at La Folle Journée (Nantes, Warsaw, Tokyo), the Festival d’Auvers-sur-Oise and in the Pianissimes season. It has also taken part in several programmes on France Musique and Österreichischer Rundfunk ORF. The trio graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris (CNSMDP) after studying in the classes of Claire Désert, Itamar Golan and François Salque. It has also benefited from the advice of artistic personalities such as the Trio Wanderer, the Ébène, Talich and Modigliani quartets, Michel Strauss, Emmanuel Strosser and Alexis Galpérine, while at the same time pursuing postgraduate studies at the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) with Patrick Jüdt, Johannes Meissl, Avedis Kouyoumdjian and Hatto Beyerle.
Camille plays a violin by Jacques-Pierre Thibout from 1831 and Raphaël a cello by Frank Ravatin built in 2020. The Trio Hélios receives support from the Safran and L’Or du Rhin Foundations, and is represented by the Claire Laballery Agency.
