Les Timbres

Les Timbres is a trio of soloists founded in 2007 by three musicians, with each a different background: Japanese violinist Yoko Kawakubo, French viola da gamba player Myriam Rignol and Belgian harpsichordist Julien Wolfs. They often meet with other artists, working together on various projects, all focused on research, creation and transmission. The musicians of Les Timbres offer their personal vision of the repertoire, while also fine-tuning their approach of chamber music work, exploring colours, reliance, improvisation, etc…
Their recordings always receive unanimous acclaim from both the public and music critics. They notably garnered a diapason d’or in 2014 for their recording of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts.
Les Timbres obtained a Master in Chamber Music, with honours, at the Lyon CNSMD. If never oblivious of their demanding concert careers, they are also committed to their mission of artistic transmission. They are all currently teaching at renowned music schools, all the while devising programmes for educational concerts.
The ensemble has regularly received awards at a number of international chamber music competitions, regularly winning the Audience Award. They perform in concerts in all of Europe and in Japan, and met great success last season, in particular with their concerts at the Louvre Auditorium.
They are now in residence, since 2014 and until 2019, at the Festival Musique et Mémoire.
