Maxim Rysanov, Nikita Boriso-Glebsky & Dóra Kokas
If two’s company, surely three’s even better. The unique sound of the string trio is one that not many composers explore and exploit, but music for this combination from the Classical period to the present-day will bring the sonorous delights of this debut ensemble to audiences next March.

Dóra Kokas cello
Grammy-nominated violist Maxim Rysanov, multi-award-winning violinist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky, and rising star cellist Dóra Kokas perform together as a trio for the very first time, and these three superb musicians will tour Ireland showcasing the elegance and exuberance of Mozart’s only string trio and the equally glorious Trio in G major by Beethoven, alongside inspiring works by contemporary composers. Led by the vibrant Ukrainian-British Rysanov, this expressive threesome showcases the lush interplay of sound and phrasing between these violin family siblings. One of the ties that bind the members of this bowed-string troika is a love of new music, and it comes as no surprise that the recital includes a thought-provoking work by Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova which highlights the extraordinary unity of sound created by the string trio. A new Music Network commission by Irish composer Ed Bennett caps this scintillating programme of works.
