Quest Ensemble is a London-based contemporary music collective that presents a unique twist on the traditional piano trio format. Featuring pianist Filipe Sousa, violinist Preetha Narayanan and cellist Tara Franks, their musical styles weave together a lyrical tapestry of sound, blending improvisation with devised composition.
Drawing on influences as broad as the contemporary minimalism of John Adams and Steve Reich to medieval plainchant, the experimental melancholic textures of Radiohead to the progressive jazz precision of Brad Mehldau, their lyrical melodic lines, rich harmonies and interwoven rhythmic counterpoint place the trio in a unique musical landscape between chamber, jazz, folk and 20th century classical music.
