THEY'RE young, glamorous and very French.

Trio Dali is a Parisian group comprising cellist, pianist and violinist and they're taking the world of chamber music by delicate, lively storm.

This is the Australian debut of the trio and they're coming to town as part of the Coffs Harbour Music Society's Autumn Subscription Series.

The Trio Dali's repertoire includes classics by Ravel, Schubert and our very own Gordon Kerry.

They've turned heads - and won awards - from Frankfurt to Osaka for their creative and compelling performances.

This year they took out awards at the Haydn Competition in Vienne, winning the coveted Audience Prize and the prize for best interpretation of a piece from the XXth century (Ravel).

Not afraid to be a little different, Trio Dali's name is taken from a kind of Chinese marble and not the Spanish artist.

"You work on marble to make it a piece of art, something very precious," cellist Christian-Pierre La Marca said.

"Our idea was to take this symbolism and describe what we want to do with the music, transforming the score into something equally precious."

Trio Dali will be performing on May 17, at CHEC's D Block Theatre.
