The Delphine Trio brings together three passionate young musicians from opposite ends of the globe: Australian clarinetist Magdalenna Krstevska, Dutch cellist Jobine Siekman and pianist Roelof Temmingh, hailing from South Africa.
Founded in 2020 at the Royal College of Music
London, the Delphine Trio showcases a
combination of individual instrumental talent,
intelligent and curious music-making, and a
passion for diverse repertoire. Having each
completed Masters’ degrees at the RCM, each
member of Delphine Trio has also been awarded
an RCM Junior Fellowship - a rare combination.
The Delphine Trio were semi-finalists in the 2021
and 2022 Royal Overseas League Competition in
London and have recorded at the Abbey Rd
Studios. They have performed in salon concerts
across London, at the Mosterdzaadje in the
Netherlands, and recently performed a sold out
recital in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room.
Earlier this year they were awarded the
Mengelberg Fonds bursary to participate in
masterclasses abroad. They have received
coaching from esteemed musicians including
Colin Lawson, Richard Lester and Timothy Lines.
The Delphine Trio are avid proponents of diversity in classical music and aim to reflect this
through their exploration of repertoire and concert programming. Expanding their knowledge
of underrepresented works and composers, they have performed in numerous diversity
initiatives at the RCM, such as the FestivALL (the inaugural RCM diversity festival) and the
Woodwind Diversity Concert, performing music by Louise Farrenc and Elisabeth Lutyens.
Upcoming engagements include recitals at St. James’s Piccadilly, Buxton Festival, Banstead
Arts Festival, Chelsea Music Society and the Reform Club.
