The Kapten Trio formed when the musicians were all students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and they were chosen as the Young Artists in Residence. Currently they are Residency Ensemble for Enterprise Music Scotland, who are generously subsidising this concert. They have built themselves a great reputation as one of the foremost piano trios in the country and are developing the repertoire by commissioning works, such as those they will be playing in Dunblane by Emily Doolittle and Shiori Usui.
Kristi Kapten studied in Estonia before going to RCS on a full scholarship; Rachel Spencer followed RCS with postgraduate study at the Guildhall, London; Duncan Strachan of St.Catz, Oxford, and RCS is well known to Arts Guild audiences as the outstanding cellist of the Maxwell Quartet.
