Lane Series Presents: Hermitage Piano Trio
Descending from the great Russian musical tradition, the Hermitage Piano Trio (Misha Keylin, violin; Sergey Antonov, cello; Ilya Kazantsev, piano) is distinguished by its exuberant musicality, interpretative range, and sumptuous sound. The trio is recognized for the polished skill with which it performs an enormous variety of music, from the Russian greats like Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, and Glinka, to the Western European masters like Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Brahms. Based in the United States, the Hermitage has performed to tremendous acclaim on major chamber music series around the country, such as in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Portland. These three musicians are also noted soloists in their own right, which is a rarity in the chamber music world. They will be performing One Movement Trio in E-flat Major by Alexander Alyabyev; Trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1, “Ghost,” by Beethoven; and Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major by Schubert.
