Foundation of the Joachim String Trio

Together with Sara Trickey and Tom Hankey, Philip Higham founded the Joachim String Trio in order to explore the repertoire for violin, viola and cello. The ensemble performs with gut strings and historical bows, focussing mainly on classical and romantical works, but also embracing music from the Baroque and the twentieth century. The three musicians named their new trio after the famous violinist Joseph Joachim.
