The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents

Hermitage Piano Trio

Misha Keylin  –  violin               Sergey Antonov  –  viola               Ilya Kazantsev  –  piano

One of the world’s leading ensembles of its kind, the Hermitage Piano Trio takes its name from St. Petersburg’s renowned art museum. Just as the Hermitage Museum represents both the very essence and history of Russia while also using its collection to embrace and promote cultures from around the world, the Hermitage Piano Trio embodies the majesty of its Russian lineage while at the same time including in its immense repertory works ranging from Russian masterpieces to the central European tradition, to contemporary commissions.

Now based in New York, the Trio has made its mark for impeccable musicianship, sumptuous sound and interpretative range. After one performance, the Washington Post observed that the Trio exhibited “a rare degree of ensemble from beginning to end [and] such power and sweeping passion that it left you nearly out of breath.” The Hermitage Piano Trio recently signed a contract with Reference Records, on which it has released an all-Rachmaninoff program, to be followed by a program of twentieth-century Spanish music slated for release in 2023.

Each of the Trio’s members enjoys a brilliant career in his own right. Violinist Misha Keylin has performed in nearly fifty countries on five continents as a soloist and has recorded to great acclaim all of Vieuxtemps’ solo works with orchestra. Cellist Sergey Antonov is one of the youngest cellists ever awarded the gold medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition. Pianist Ilya Kazantsev’s many awards and honours include first prize at the Nikolai Rubinstein International Competition as well as top prizes at the International Chopin Competition and the World Piano Competition USA.
