Founded in 2012, NAMIROVSKY-LARK-PAE TRIO (formerly Trio Modêtre) is a charismatic chamber ensemble known for their unbridled energy and imaginative interpretations of works in the classical and contemporary canon. They are recipients of the Silver Medal and the G. Burt & Charlotte Ford Fund at the 2012 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and 2016 Tarisio Trust Young Artist Grant.

2019 looks forward to the release of Namirovsky-Lark-Pae Trio’s new album titled Masterpieces Among Peers: Trios by Frank Bridge and Johannes Brahms, which is supported by the Tarisio Trust in London and Si-Yo Music Society Foundation, under TYXart Label in Germany. This recording revives his Second Piano Trio alongside another incredible masterpiece of the repertoire, Brahms Trio No. 1 in B major. 

N-L-P’s musical influences span many centuries and continents, from Bluegrass in Kentucky to the traditions of Europe, the Middle East and Asia. They are also a proud advocate of new music and presenting the works of living composers including Roberto Kalb, whose work Le Dormeur du Val was given the world premiere in 2012, and LA- based composer Daniel Temkin.
