Named for Beethoven’s famous work for piano trio, Ghost Trio is made up of Gabriela Glapska (piano), Ken Ichinose (cello) and Monique Lapins (violin). The group was founded in mid-2019 as one of Gabriela’s PhD recital projects.

Having quickly realised that they immensely enjoy playing together, they decided to continue working as a trio. All three are accomplished soloists and chamber musicians with diverse backgrounds. Despite their recent formation as a trio, they have already gained reputation as one of the most refreshing and enjoyable chamber groups in Aotearoa.

The trio has focused on exploring a new approach to the greatest music written for piano trio, as well as the discovery of less-known contemporary treasures of the piano trio repertoire.
