Wind ensemble
Verified profile

Founded by friends at The Royal College of Music in 2009, the Gelächter Trio has established itself as a dynamic and versatile ensemble based in London. The group trained under the tutelage of Martin Gatt (former principal bassoon of The London Symphony Orchestra) and were awarded the June Emerson Launchpad Prize in 2010. The same year they were semi-finalists in the Royal Over Seas League competition. They also came to a realisation that a rehearsal could not take place without a certain amount of laughter, which is how they acquired the group's name: The German word Gelächter means "laughter". Passionate about education work, the Trio frequently leads workshops in many schools throughout the UK and works for Classical Babies, providing interactive recitals for mothers and toddlers. They recently worked with Jackdaws Educational trust hosting workshops and concerts for over 1000 schoolchildren in Frome as well as with schools in Woolpit to produce an opera featuring a work for trio and narrator, working with actor Ian Lavender of Dad's Army fame. 2014 saw the group's St Martin in the Fields debut as well as chamber music masterclasses at Leeds College of Music and performing the world premieres of Dovetail (Timothy Salter) and Dark Gravity (Mark Yeats), having been awarded grants from The Britten-Pears Foundation, The Fenton Arts Trust and The RVW Trust, to whom they are extremely grateful. 2016 saw the release of Gelachter's debut album 'Tailwind' which recieved four stars from BBC Music Magazine. They were also featured on Classic FM as part of the Two Moors Festival in which they performed much loved classical works on a rush hour train from Paddington to Exeter!
