26 October 2024 at 7:30pm
Trio Bohémo


Shortly after its formation in 2019, the trio's talent and deep musicality became apparent. They received numerous awards: first they caused a stir at the Gianni Bergamo Award in Lugano, Switzerland, where they were awarded second prize. In 2021, Trio Bohémo not only received the first prize, but also the audience prize at the “International Johannes Brahms Competition” in Austria and only few weeks later they won the “International Parkhouse Award” in London.


During 2022 and 2023, Trio Bohémo continued to achieve successes on the competition circuit and with their debuts. The trio was on BBC Radio's 3 'In Tune' show. This was followed by first prize and prize for the best interpretation of the composition by S. Vainiunas at the “Stasys Vainiunas International Chamber Music Competition” in Vilnius, Lithuania. Few days later they were awarded the top prize at the “International Joseph Joachim Competition” in Weimar (without awarding the first prize) and prize for best performance of a contemporary piece. The “ISA Festival” in Austria once again gave Trio Bohémo an award, this time for the best chamber music ensemble with piano.

In parallel with their extensive solo careers, they have been performing together around the world and across the UK since 2001. Their close collaboration stems from a shared teacher, the inspirational Irina Zaritskaya, with whom they both studied at the Royal College of Music. Their friendship dates from 1987 during a visit of students from the Gnessin School in Moscow to the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey.
