Jacqueline Preys: violin, Pierre Sutra: cello, Nuno Cernadas: piano

The Faustus Piano Trio was founded in 2019 by three European classical
musicians based in Brussels: the Bulgarian violinist Jacqueline Preys,
the French cellist Pierre Sutra and the Portuguese pianist Nuno
Cernadas. Together they decided to venture into the vast chamber music
literature written for piano trio, with a special focus on the great
Viennese tradition. The Faustus Piano Trio has received precious advices
from Professor Johannes Meissl (Artis String Quartet) and cellist Vida
Vujic at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna and has
performed in different venues in Belgium and Austria.

Having played in several orchestras in Austria, Jacqueline Preys
recently won the co-principal second violin position in the Belgian
National Orchestra.
Jacqueline earned her Bachelor’s Degree at the New Bulgarian University
in Sofia and a Degree of Master of Arts at the University of Music and
Performing Arts in Vienna with renowned Professor Michael
Frischenschlager. Throughout the years, Jacqueline worked with
violinists such as Marianne Picketty (France), Gerard Poulet (France),
Erich Grünberg (England) and Takashi Shimizu (Japan). In 2015, she was
awarded 3rd Prize at the Stefanie Hohl Violin Competition in Vienna. In
2011 Jacqueline had the honor to play as a soloist with the Orchestre du
CNR Paris in the Théâtre du Châtelet.
Jacqueline Preys performs in numerous festivals throughout the world
such as Orford Summer Festival, Canada, Asahikawa Music Festival, Japan,
and Salzburg Summer Academy, Austria.
Pierre Sutra grew up in France where he started to learn the cello in

Xavier Gagnepain, and from 2009 continued his studies in Belgium in the
class of Jeroen Reuling (Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels) and Justus
Grimm (Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen). In 2014, he got accepted in
the NSKA (Nederlandse Strijkkwartet Academie) in Amsterdam, where he
received a high level training on chamber music playing from Marc Danel
(Danel Quartet). Pierre Sutra also had the chance to work with great
cello pedagogues such as Jerôme Pernoo (Paris), István Varga (Budapest)
and Maria Kliegel (Cologne). He is performing regularly in Belgium in
important orchestras such as La Monnaie-De Munt, Opera de Wallonie,
Belgian National Orchestra, and gives regularly recitals as a chamber
music player.
