Lucy Gould - Jury Trio for Piano, Violin and Violoncello 2021

Lucy Gould is best known as the violinist and founder member of the Gould Piano Trio, one of the UKs most known and established trios. Several international awards, a busy schedule and an impressive discography (core repertoire, lesser known works and commissions) are a testament to Lucy’s dedication to this genre since embarking on her career.

Lucy studied at the Royal Academy of Music, London and Indiana University, Bloomington with Gyorgy Pauk and Josef Gingold. In addition, masterclasses with Andras Schiff, Menahem Pressler and members of the Amadeus String Quartet at Prussia Cove and the Banff Centre for the Arts were a source of great inspiration in the early days. She enjoys all aspects of the repertoire, having performed sonatas with Leon McCawley, clarinet trios with Robert Plane, horn trios with David Pyatt, Richard Watkins and Alec Frank-Gemmill and chamber music of all shapes and sizes with many of the leading artists in this field at festivals in the UK and abroad.

Lucy is a regular guest leader of various different UK orchestras and holds the position of principal 2nd violin with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. She teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff where she lives with her husband, Robert Plane, clarinetist and their three children.
