The Bukolika Piano Trio is an ensemble already recognized for their intensely expressive music making, personal character of playing and exceptional virtuosity. Established in 2014, the trio is particularly interested in discovering and performing chamber works of the 20th and 21st century, especially from their native Poland. The Bukolika Piano Trio has been selected for the St John’s Smith Square Young Artists Scheme 2017/2018, as well as the A.S.S.E.T scheme in 2017. Performing in prestigious venues around Europe, they made their Radio 3 debut in 2017.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
