Three young Russian soloists who form the Hermitage Piano Trio come to town this week. Presented by the Melbourne Chamber Music Society, the Hermitage will perform 7:30 p.m. Friday in Indialantic, FL.
The trio’s members — violinist Mischa Keylin, cellist Sergey Antonov and pianist Ilya Kazantsev — have taught at acclaimed schools, including Eastman School of Music, Boston University, Oberlin College and the Tanglewood Music Center.
If that’s not enough to convince you to attend this concert, then read what the Washington Post wrote about a Hermitage Piano Trio concert: “Three of Russia’s most spectacular young soloists…turned in a performance of such power and sweeping passion that it left you nearly out of breath.”
The Hermitage has performed throughout this country and is acclaimed for its “exuberant musicality, interpretive range, and sumptuous sound.” It worked on a major project in 2013 for the 140th anniversary of Rachmaninoff’s birth.
Here’s a video about the Hermitage Piano Trio:
Friday’s concert is scheduled to include: Schubert’s “Notturno in E-flat major, Op. 148,” Brahms “Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op. 101” and Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50.”
The performance begins 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1 at St. Marks United Methodist Church, 2030 N. A1A, Indialantic, FL. Tickets are $35 general and $10 students. Call 321-213-5100 or visit MelbourneChamberMusicSociety.com.
