Festival concert, where Latvian listeners will have the opportunity to get to know one of the brightest new ensembles in Europe - the Danish Trio Vitruvi, and their unique dance project "Kammerballetten".
The program will alternately include instrumental pieces read by Trio Vitruvi and ballet productions performed by the soloists of the Royal Danish Opera accompanied by the ensemble.
Trio Vitruvi has played together since the summer of 2013, where they attracted great attention at their debut at Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ‘Junge Elite’ 2013, Germany. The trio won both First Prize and the Audience Prize at the Danish National Radio’s P2 Chamber Music
Competition, 2014. Shortly after, the trio won yet another First Prize in Latvia at the Jurmala International Music Competition.
Since then, Trio Vitruvi has performed all over Europe, Russia and China. They have performed in concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, The Mariinsky Theatre, Salle Cortot, Laeiszhalle, Schloss Grafenegg, and in 2015 together with Adam Fischer & The Danish Chamber Orchestra, Trio Vitruvi performed Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. In April 2018 Trio Vitruvi released their debut CD recording of Schubert’s Trio, Op. 100 and Nocturne, D. 897 on Orchid Classics. The record was presented at Trio Vitruvi's debut concert in Carnegie Hall, on the 17th of April
“an ensemble to look out for .."
“an extravagant ensemble, who fill the music with a warmth, energy and instrumental
mastery rarely seen or heard – it is the essence of chamber music. They play with a burning
enthusiasm as well as true musical integrity and depth, giving their audiences unique
experiences and understanding of the music”.
-Danish National Radio
In 2018 Trio Vitruvi founded KAMMERBALLETTEN, an annual festival celebrating cutting-edge ballet and chamber music.
"Pushing the boundaries of what new ballet is."
