Chamber Music Masterpieces. Piano Trio

Chamber Hall’s series PERSONALLY

Joseph Haydn, Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert - the musical prodigies who have created the most spectacular masterpieces for chamber music and who's names are well known across the world. Elīna Bukša has written her name in the world as one of the most talented Latvian violinists of the new generation. She has perfected her skills in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth’s Music Chapel in Belgium and has proven her talent in numerous international contests. These three prodigies will meet in the concert “Masterpieces of Chamber Music. Piano Trio”. Buška, together with her confederates - the bright Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov and virtuoso French cellist Aurélien Pascal - will perform the famous pieces for piano by the classic composers.

Together, the talented artists create the Trio Aventure, which Elīna Bukša tells us about: “This piano trio is a long cherished dream. Pavel and I have been a duet for more than seven years, and one day we decided it would be great to find a cellist, with whom we could discover a new repertoire and experiment with styles and combinations. After our first concert with the French cellist Aurélien Pascal, we instantly knew - we feel and understand each other, we are united in our freedom of thoughts, our desire to explore, improvise and search for new ways to express ourselves in the form of art.”
