About the SR9 Trio

The French Trio SR9 promotes a creative vision of contemporary western drumming. Their special way of reviewing and transcribing the
works of the great composers shows how actively they commit to classical and contemporary musical heritage. It led them to study closely the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach. They released their first CD "Bach au marimba" in October 2015 on the Label Naïve.

The Trio SR9 was created in 2010 at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Lyon. In 2012, they won three prizes at the International Music Competition in Luxembourg: the First Prize, the Press Prize and the Public Prize. They are also laureate of the FNAPEC Chamber Music Competition in 2012 and of the Fondation Banque Populaire in 2016.

Paul Changarnier, Nicolas Cousin and Alexandre Esperet are three young and curious musicians and they definitely express themselves in a wide range of performances. They like to collaborate with various artists to explore other artistic fields, including dance and theater, and create new projects where all disciplines merge into one creative expression.
