Coulthard Trio

The genesis of the Coulthard Trio is woven with passion for music, collaboration, and cultural connectivity. This ensemble, comprised of Tim Beattie (guitar), Jaume Darbra Fa (flute), and Claudia Do Minh Ramos (viola), came into existence during their respective residencies at the prestigious Banff Centre for Performing Arts in Alberta, Canada.

The trio's formation unfolded during a shared curation event, set against the backdrop of an art installation featuring the soundboard of Jean Coulthard's piano. United initially by friendship, the trio embarked on a musical journey, drawn to Coulthard's composition crafted for their unique instrumentation.
