Horizons Series 1 | “Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition Winners” – Rilian Trio

Former Calgary Pro Musica Young Artists Development Program violinist returns to Calgary with his prize-winning trio

Brought together by their shared passion for chamber music and musical narrative, the Rilian Trio is composed of three of Canada’s leading young musicians—pianist Godwin Friesen, violinist Daniel Dastoor and cellist David Liam Roberts—who joined forces in 2021 at the Glenn Gould School (GGS) of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. In September 2023, they were awarded the first prize, the audience prize, and the prize for the best interpretation of the commissioned piece at the 12th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition. Upcoming engagements include debuts in Oslo and Trømsø, Norway; Waterloo, Belgium; and Niagara, Canada. The 2024-25 season will also see the trio return to Trondheim as festival artists at the Trondheim Kammermusikkfestival.
