Led by long-time Newport Music Festival resident artist, cellist Sergey Antonov, and featuring violinist Misha Keylin and pianist Ilya Kazantsev, the Hermitage Piano Trio is distinguished by its exuberant musicality, interpretative range, and sumptuous sound.
Inspired by St. Petersburg’s venerable Hermitage State Museum, the Hermitage Piano Trio represents both the very essence and history of Russia while also embracing and promoting cultures from around the world, complementing works that embody the majesty of its Russian lineage with ones from the great European tradition as well as contemporary American commissions. Following a recent performance, The Washington Post raved that “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.”
Beethoven – Op.1 No. 3 in c minor
Glinka – Trio Pathetique
Dvorak – Dumky
