Rilian Trio

Brought together by their shared passion for chamber music and depth of musical narrative, the Rilian Trio is composed of three of Canada’s leading young musicians, pianist Godwin Friesen, violinist Daniel Dastoor, and cellist David Liam Roberts. As a trio, they have studied with Miguel da Silva, Steven Isserlis, Christian Tetzlaff, Elisabeth Kufferath and Stefan Mendl. 


Upcoming engagements include a recital presented by the Gallery Players of Niagara in 2024. 


The Rilian Trio formed in 2021 at the Glenn Gould School (GGS) of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, where they were mentored by Bryan Epperson. Five months later, they were awarded 1st Prize at the GGS Chamber Music Competition, and shortly thereafter were one of two trios preselected from an international pool for the upcoming 2023 Trondheim International Chamber Competition.


The trio has performed in Toronto and Montreal, as well as in Trondheim and Levanger, Norway. They have also premiered a new work for piano quartet by their pianist, Godwin Friesen.
